No matter how good we are about healthy meals, it’s the snacks that often suck us back down into the dark world of preservatives and artificial flavors. That 3 o’clock lull hits, or the kids need something after their summer swim and the cheese puffs are right there!
NatureBox takes the effort out of finding healthy alternatives with a carton full of treats delivered right to your door. The company believes snacks are a landscape of eating too often ignored, so sources munchies that are nutritionist-approved, as well as preservative-free and as organic as possible. Without trans-fats, artificial sweeteners or high fructose corn syrup, NatureBox’s snacks ensures a pick-me-up stays that way — no one suffers the sugar crash associated with the junk we munch on when we think it doesn’t matter.
Each month subscribers enjoy a selection of goodies like Lemon Pucker Pistachios and Zesta Fiesta Mix. Have a sweet tooth? Don’t worry, the snacks aren’t all savory; enjoy dried peaches and apple rings instead of the secret candy bar hidden deep in the desk drawer. Their stuff is so good you may not even want to sneak sugar.
Another reason to feel better about these new snacks: for every order received, a meal is donated to a child in need through a partnership with Feeding America.
Snacks are an undeniable factor in the obesity problem the U.S. faces. A lot of small bites add up over time; most people don’t realize that as much as 25% of our daily caloric intake is from those handfuls we think don’t count. Transitioning to healthier options can have a big impact on health; it doesn’t get much easier than having them come right to the door.
