Dr. Sears Family Essentials Popumz
Just because they're healthy doesn't mean they skimp on flavor! These nutritious snacks are a yummy treat for kids – and parents, too.
I have to admit – healthy and tasty are two things that typically do not go hand-in-hand in my book. But when I received a sample of Dr. Sears Family Essentials Popumz, my thoughts about taste and nutrition quickly shifted!
Popumz are whole grain crisps packed with 100 mg of Omega-3 DHA – and to my surprise, tons of flavor. If you're not familiar with Omega-3 DHA, it helps support a healthy brain, and DHA is an essential component of the brain, eyes and nervous system. Pretty good perks for a tasty kids' snack, hey? Not to mention the fact it's got the stamp of America's leading family of pediatric childcare advice experts. Bonus.
These mini rice cakes are crunchy with a sweet kick – which comes from the flavored drizzle on top. Typical rice cakes have a much more cardboard-like consistency, but that's not the case with these snacks.
Popumz are packaged in grab-and-go bags, making them a great addition to your kid's lunchbox.
As of right now, these yummy snacks can be purchased online at DrSearsFamilyEssentials.com for $3.99 for a four-pack tray or $26.99 for an eight-pack tray. Choose from chocolate, vanilla or caramel drizzle.
I've tried chocolate and vanilla – and, while I'm a chocoholic, the vanilla ones were tasty, too!
Healthy, portable snacks are a must for families on the go. With so many unhealthy alternatives out there, this tasty and nutritious treat is a no-brainer!
