My Daughter is Nuts for Summer Snacks! (Plus a Wonderful Brands Giveaway!) #WonderfulSummer

21 Flares 21 Flares ×

wondeful brandsOur two-year-old never ceases to amaze me with the types of foods she’s willing to eat. Just last night, we settled in for a dinner of chicken fingers and mac & cheese and after watcher her daddy eat his side salad, she demanded a salad, too. And wouldn’t you know it, she completely ignored the rest of her meal and devoured her bowl of lettuce and dressing!  

It’s not always that easy, though. I find myself constantly struggling to find snacks she likes, but that are also good for her. That’s why it makes me feel good that our daughter is an adventurous eater and likes healthy foods. That’s especially true when it comes to summer snacks, which can get a little tricky with our on-the-go summer schedule.  

Thanks to folks at Wonderful brands, one of the snacks I’ve recently introduced her to are Wonderful Pistachios and Wonderful Almonds. She’s always been a fan of peanuts and walnuts, so I was curious to see how she’d react to these new snacks. Long story short – she loved them!  

My husband and I loved them, too. I especially liked the pistachios, because they’re a healthy mid-afternoon snack. A handful of Wonderful pistachios helps take the edge off hunger and acts as a satisfying “bridge” between meals. The hunger-reducing abilities are what they call the” Pistachio Principle” – a simple mindful eating concept that may help you fool yourself full without feelings of deprivation.        

Wonderful brands products are available in the following three varieties and are sold in the produce section of grocery stores nationwide. You can win a prize pack containing all three products, but more on that later!

Wonderful Pistachios Wonderful Pistachios are a delicious, sensible snack (and one our two-year-old loves!) – and a nutrient-rich alternative to popular “junk” snacks. Available in Roasted & Salted, Salt & Pepper, Sweet Chili and Roasted & Salted Shelled, a serving of Wonderful Pistachios provides a good source of protein and fiber (contains 14 grams of fat per serving). Enjoy a reduced serving of about 30 pistachios for around 100 calories for a snack that offers both crunch and seasoning, making them a satisfying snack choice.

Wonderful Almonds Wonderful Almonds are naturally cholesterol-free, making them a deliciously tempting option for smarter meals and snacks. All three varieties of Wonderful Almonds – Roasted & Salted, Roasted No Salt, and Natural Raw – are a great source of Vitamin E, and a good source of fiber (contains 14 grams of fat per serving.)

Wonderful Almond Accents Wonderful Almond Accents offer big flavor at only around 40 calories per serving. Available in two flavors – Honey Roasted Cranberries and Sea Salt & Cracked Pepper – they’re great for turning ordinary salads into a Saladbration because they’re a tastier (and healthier) alternative to croutons and other salad toppings. Wonderful Almond Accents are dry roasted with no added oil, and are naturally free of trans-fat.

Enter below to win a Wonderful Brand gift pack, which includes all of the Wonderful brands products mentioned above along with a Wonderful Brand beach bag and beach towel. Perfect for a trip to the beach or the pool!
