Summertime and the Livin’ is Easy
Summer is the best time of year. That’s it. That’s the tweet.
During this season, it’s important to keep healthy snacks in kiddos hands to power them through trips to the pool and pick up baseball games that stretch for endless hours. When you’re on the go, it can be tricky to keep the fam supplied with nutritious food like fresh fruits and vegetables. There’s not always an easy place to stop for a complete lunch when you’re hiking in a National Park or enjoy a fun-filled afternoon in a theme park.
Thanks to SmartBox, it’s easier than ever to make sure everyone from the littlest kids to the bigger kids (aka adults) have the protein and nutrients they need to make your summer vacation the best one ever.
My Way or the Highway
“Are we there yet?”
The most dreaded four words of any road trip. More often than not, tears and tantrums in the car can be avoided by a well-placed treat. For the families that want to avoid fried fast food from a roadside stand, SmartBox has you covered.
Probably our most popular snack at SmartBox is KIND snack bars. These gluten-free treats come with 5 grams of protein and only 5 grams of sugar, despite their sweet flavor. These work in a pinch and will stave off the worst mid-trip tantrums. If you’re dealing with some picky eaters, it might be time to deploy Lenny & Larry’s Complete Cookie. They may look and taste exactly like Grandma’s snickerdoodles, but they’re actually vegan cookies with 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber.
For the carnivores out there pleading all they want is a burger from the Golden Arches, we’ve got the perfect solution. While Dad may have fueled plenty of late nights with beef jerky, it’s probably not the best ingredient in a balanced diet. Enter Vermont Turkey Sticks. These portable and personal sized snacks will bring the same good memories to a drive on Route 66 without any of the bad stuff (like added hormones and antibiotics).
The Happiest Snacks on Earth
“We’re going to DisneyWorld!”
Maybe the most exciting words a kid can hear. SmartBox loves Walt Disney World so much that we’re going to send YOU there for FREE! It’s all part of SmartBox’s “Unbox the Magic” campaign. Just click here to learn all the details.
Once you get to the parks, you don’t want to forget the snacks! You’ll need the classics like popcorn and fruit, but we’ve got a few magic tricks up our sleeves.
After spinning through space on the brand new Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, you might need a lil’ something to settle your stomach. Tossing a few Hana Tonic Ginger Shots in your backpack before heading out for the day will come in handy in the event of any motion sickness and get you ready for your next adventure.
A Day on the Lake
If you’re looking to stay cool, there’s few things better than hitting the lake in the middle of the summer. If you’re paddling a kayak, chilling in an inner tube or cruising in a motorboat, the crew will be hungry and ready to snack.
Everyone will be feeling their sea legs with a handful of Pirate’s Booty. This rice and corn puff snack is perfect for sharing with any size group. And, if you’re burning extra calories paddling all afternoon, make sure to pack a Munk Pack Keto Granola Bar. This will give you the energy boost to get back home with plenty of time for dinner.
Before you head out on any vacations this summer, you need to make sure you have plenty of bags of Annie’s Homegrown Organic Cheddar Bunnies. There’s no specific reason, we just really love ‘em!
