My Snack Pantry (and a NatureBox Give Away!)

In an effort to help me and my kids eat more healthy foods during the day, I carved out space for a snack pantry area in our mudroom. Let me tell you – it has been revolutionary!!

It has made packing for lunches so easy, and when the kids come home from school, they just grab something from the bins (thus avoiding any “mo-ommmm, I’m hunnnggggrrryyyy” whining). And I love that the shelves are near the back door, so it’s easy for me to grab a little snack for myself before I hit the road (thus avoiding any potential to get hangry and the temptation for fast food).

It’s been working so well! I usually keep fresh fruit like apples and bananas in there and I’ve also recently been using NatureBox to keep my snack pantry stocked with lots of healthy options.

The first thing I do when I get my box is divvy up the large bags into smaller snack-size baggies or small reusable tupperwares and then throw them in my bins. My favorites so far have been the Lemon Pucker Pistachios and Sunshine Chips, but I love that you get to try new snacks each month so my kids are never bored with what they munch on.
