Healthy Snacking at Home thanks to #GoldEmblem Abound and @CVS_Extra

I’m always looking to make wholesome snack decisions when it comes to school lunches.  I don’t want the boys eating a healthy sandwich and then 2 or 3 snacks filled with sugar. It’s something that’s very important to me and I like to know that healthy choices are being made when it comes to preparing their lunch. Since this year we’re packing 4 lunches every morning for back-to-school time, we’re looking to make it as easy as possible. I want to wake up in the morning, open my cabinets and have great options right in front of me.

CVS/pharmacy has a new line of snacks in their Gold Emblem line called abound that I’m absolutely loving for easy, healthy snacking for back-to-school time.

The abound snack line is exactly the kinds of snacks I’m looking for because they are free of artificial preservatives and flavors. I think it’s phenomenal that CVS/pharmacy has created this new snack line because it’s a perfect, healthy option for parents. Believe it or not, it’s not always easy trying to find snacks that I’m happy with AND my kids are happy with, so when I find that perfect happy balance, I’m thrilled!

My sons’ favorite abound snack item right now (as is my husband’s!) is their CVS Gold Emblem Abound Omega-3 Trail Mix.

It’s mixed with walnuts, pepitas, cashews, and hazelnuts with dried cranberries and sweet raisins. It’s a great energy boost snack that I love giving them. I have been putting it in bowls on the counter throughout the day, and it’s gone in seconds!

It’s going to be great to be able to add this into their lunches throughout the year because I know they’ll eat it and it will be so simple just to pop right on in! I added it into their swim bag lunches yesterday and they devoured it during lunch time. The Omega-3 Trail Mix is truly an excellent source of ALA omega-3s… my sons don’t realize just what kinds of goodness they’re eating, they just know it tastes YUMMY! 🙂

The abound line is amazing because they combine nutritious ingredients with great taste in every product — so you can have the best of both worlds in every bite. They also contain zero trans fat.
