One resolution that is top on most of our lists is to eat better. Not talking about weight, we want to promote healthy eating for an overall lifestyle change. One easy way to focus on healthy eating is to eat small meals and snacks during the day. Here are a few of our favorite ideas for kids and parents.

Carrot Chips, Roasted Garlic Pumpkin Seeds, Chipotle Maple Almonds, Country Ranch Peas, and Cinnamon Spiced Granola. Doesn't that sound amazing! NatureBox, a company whose mission to make sure that snack fanatics always have fresh nutritious, and scrumptious snacks filled with the goodies mentioned above and much more.

The company'??s '??healthy snack box delivered to your door'?? concept makes healthier snacking easier and provides busy people with a convenient way to have nutritious, wholesome, and minimally processed snacks always on-hand throughout the year. For less than $20 a month, a NatureBox includes 15-20 servings of 4-6 items '??curated'?? by a nutritionist and sourced from local growers and independent food suppliers across the U.S. Every snack included in the box is free of high fructose corn syrup, hydrogenated oils, trans fats, artificial sweeteners, flavors, and colors. With measured portions, NatureBox snacks make it easier on snackers to resist over-indulging in unwanted and unhealthy calories. The company also gives individuals the option to 'customize' their NatureBox by choosing non-gmo, low sugar, or gluten-free boxes to fit their dietary preferences. Additionally, for each NatureBox sold, NatureBox donates one meal to its partner organization FeedingAmerica that feeds 37-million hungry Americans every year.

Snacking on-the-go just got easier thanks to Sunsweet prunes. We really love the portable Plum Amazins that can be a great snack on their own as well as a great addition to your oatmeal, yogurt and cereal. These tiny prunes are also packed with fiber and potassium, which is beneficial for regularity and energy.

We love the line of Happy Family products for kids. And the company recently introduced Happy Squeeze SUPER pouches, a greatsolution for super moms, offering organic on-the-go treats that are high in nutritional benefits and keep super kids healthy and happy. This includes the Happy Squeeze SUPER Acai, White Grape and Apple, a blend that contains the small, dark purple fruit packed with antioxidants, which increases memory retention; the Happy Squeeze SUPER Kiwi, Banana and Apple, a blend that is high in vitamin C, which contributes to better eyesight, boosts the immune system and helps fights infections and the Happy Squeeze SUPER Pom, Blueberry and Apple whose seeds are a good source of vitamin K, which helps promote healthy bone growth.
