Newman‘s Own Organic sent our family a generous box of treats to sample. If you know me personally, you know I do not snack a lot and I do not like to give the kids sweet treats too often. We do from time to time enjoy our family movie nights filled with homemade popcorn. If you follow me on Instagram, you will see me laying out my serving platters for the weekend, so yes we indulgence.
However, when it comes to packing their lunches and giving them a healthy balanced diet I like to keep the “junk food” to a minimum. With Newman’s Own Organic, the food has gone through a third-party certification process that validates that at least 95% of the ingredients are organic. After a little bit of research on the company I discovered that, the manufacturing facility undergoes an inspection by an accredited agency to validate cleanliness, manufacturing procedures. Newman’s Own products all contain zero Trans fats.
Newman’s Own Organic Snack Ideas
With this in mind, we still packed the little guy’s (Carter) lunch with snacks in moderation. As you can see, the Hermits were a hit in our house. The taste is a mix of spices, fruit and fig. The boys seem to like them. Snacks and treats go a long way to putting a happy smile on everyone’s face. My boys were definitely having fun and I love to know that their healthy in the process.
Carter and my hubby liked the Chocolate Alphabet Cookies. I have to admit they were very tasty. Look at the ingredients. Not bad at all for this label reading mama.
- Organic Unbleached Wheat Flour,
- Organic Sugar,
- Palm Fruit Oil,
- Cocoa (Processed with Alkali),
- Natural Flavor,
- Sodium Bicarbonate (leavening),
- Salt, Unsweetened Chocolate
Packing a few of these in his lunch bag with a banana, apple sauce, chicken, and milk makes a balanced daytime meal for our growing boy.
Our family absolutely loved the Newman’s Own Organic chocolates. My favorite was the Organic Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cups and the Hint-O-Mint Newman-O’s, so delicious with a glass of almond milk. If you have a desk job, it can be easy to snack when you get bored. I am trying to lose weight. At my desk at work, I tucked it away Organic Super Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cups. The cups sizes are so small, yet perfect enough to take the craving away. I only eat one and it is only when the craving calls.
