Funky Monkey Snacks

I love getting packages in the mail.  It just makes my day when I'm walking up the sidewalk and I see something setting on the front step.

What makes it even better is that I often get packages from various companies or relatives sending goodies for the kids, so I never really am expecting anything - it is generally a fun surprise, each and every time.  Last week I received these:



Funky Monkey Snacks contacted me awhile back about sampling some of their healthy snack product and of course I said yes!  I often feel that when I am home I am serving breakfast, cleaning up breakfast, finding  mid-morning snacks, serving lunch, cleaning up lunch, finding snacks for after nap time, cooking dinner, serving dinner, cleaning up dinner and if the family is lucky - serving dessert.

I do a lot of cooking, serving and cleaning.

As a mom, it's sometimes hard to find healthy snacks for my kids.  We eat a LOT of fresh fruit, cheese, peanut butter, veggies and dip, crackers and homemade granola bars.  Other than that I tend to shy away from any pre-packaged products, unless their ingredient list is small and I can read it.



Enter in Funky Monkey Snacks!

Lets just say the husband and the little man ate one package 10 minutes after I opened the box.  It is simply dried fruit, but has the texture of potato chips, with the sweetness of fruit.  Really, pretty fun and neat.

Would you like to try a sample package?

The generous folks over at Funky Monkey Snacks are willing to send a reader the same sample package I received.  I know many of you are moms needing snacks for your kids!

  6. My kids love it when I make up a platter of fruit, all different varieties and serve it with yogurt to dip it in. We also love to make smoothies during the warmer months.

  10. Being a college student, my favorite snack is a quick and healthy one that is great on the go! Typically a ziploc of grapes or a handful of trail mix does the trick!
