Summer is literally weeks away for us and I couldn’t be more excited! No more school lunches to be made no more starving kids coming off the bus and raiding my snack basket – our days will be filled with park trips, splash pad playdates lots of fun and that means I’ll still have hungry kids on my hand. I always try to be prepared whenever I go anywhere with my kids with lots of snack options. There is nothing worse than a hangry child or really adult too! My first choice for my kids is always something fresh either fruit or veggies but typically they are still hungry after that and if we are gone on the road for the day (like we will this summer) I need to come prepared with lots of snacks. When choosing snacks I look for something that my kids will enjoy, it must taste good (duh) and I want something that isn’t loaded with sugar and bad for them. Recently I was sent a box of goodies from Kind Snacks and we couldn’t wait to try them out. Since I have a nut allergy we avoid nuts in our house so I was very thankful that all the bars we were sent were nut free #winwin and that means they are even safe to send to school with the kids if needed. (If you don’t have a nut allergy and you enjoy nuts Kind Snacks has tons of bar options for you)

In our box we received the Dark Chocolate Chunk, Oats and Honey with Toasted Coconut (my favourite) and the Maple Pumkin Seeds with Sea Salt. All of them were delicious and kid and parent approved but they even have more options that I would still love to try like the popped salted carmel! The kids really like the Pressed Bars which a healthy spin on a fruit snack. Each bar boats 2 servings of fruit and clean ingredients which I am sure every mom loves to feed her child. Pressed bars contain 5 ingredients or less and NO ADDED SUGAR!! We enjoyed the Pineapple Banana Kale Spinach and the Strawberry Apple Cherry Chia . The bars are also packaged in fun bright colours which naturally the kids gravitate to.

Kind Snacks are just delicious, healthy snack options but they also have a mission to make the world a littler kinder with one snack and one act at a time and I just love this whole idea. Feeding my kids snacks that are good for their physical body and their emotional soul is a total win in my books. Kind Snacks want to provide healthy snacks and inspire acts of kindness big and small as a part of the KIND Movement and I want to partner with them. We can all agree this world needs more love and kindness so I want to encourage you my beautiful readers to jump on board and join in. As a way to get started I want to give away one a one month supply of Kind Bars to one of you. All you have to do to enter is comment on this post or on my Instagram post and tell me one way you are going to spread kindness this week. (If you comment on this blog post and my Instagram post you will have two entries.)

  • Easter behind us (already) May is coming and dare I say summer is on its way... I’m pretty sure end of school will be here literally before I know it and I’m ok with that but lots of exciting things in store for the next little while and these little people make it all worth it.
  • Monday’s mantra! (And everyday) If we all where a little kinder think how different the world would be! Kindness always wins!
  • Motherhood is hard even when you have an amazing husband to parent alongside but this mama has truly wore her “super mom” cape these past two weeks with such grace, patience and so much love for her girls! I know she is not only physically but emotionally exhausted and so excited to have her hubby back tonight after 2 weeks away but I just wanted to say how proud I am of you B! Supporting Scotty @scottystephenson as he goes on a trip of a life time and juggling single motherhood so incredibly your girlies are so lucky they get to call you mommy! I love you so much and miss you already! (I’m still open to living together permanently 😊)
  • This girl has been such a sweetheart lately and we have been enjoying our days together so much it’s making my heart hurt to think that in a few short months she will be off to school each day and as excited as I am for her to experience it I wish time would slow down for just a bit!
  • Today was a REALLY good day! Love this guy and our life we have together and super proud of him! #bestisyettocome #goodthingsonthehorizon
