As a mom I am always concerned with the type of food my little guys are consuming and with the rate of child obesity more than doubling in size in the last 30 years according to the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention, it seems I have a good reason to b. So when the representatives of Slammers Snacks, an organic, portable, superfood snacks that is loaded with antioxidants, fruits, and vegetables reached out for me to try their product there was no hesitation.
“Each flavor introduces kids to superfoods such as brain-boosting blueberries, heart-healthy acai, andtioxidant-rich pomegranate, and vitamin-rich yumberries. Slammers are a great source of vitamins and minerals, and two flavors introduced this year come packed with seven grams of protein, perfect for satiating after-school hunger!”
As soon as my little guys got off the school bus I was waiting on the front porch for them to sample their first Slammer Snack. I had two flavors for them to try first up was Pomegranate Grape Crush (grape, pomegranate, coconut, apple, banana and purple carrot) and then Chill’n (bananas, blueberries, butternut squash, greek yogurt and yumberry). Each child had his own favorite and laid claim on the rest of that flavor.
My oldest son who is an avid reader quickly brought to my attention that on the back of the boxes not only do they describe the flavors and give details about some of the more exotic fruit/vegetable, but they also tell the story of the company.
“As our kids grew up, they were asking for fun and yummy treats to throw in their backpacks. We created these awesomely delicious on-the-go snacks, with super-healthy organic ingredients, designed to energize for every activity. Slammers™is for all the busy parents and active kids with great taste in food!”- Jen & Jill (Founders)
I am truly happy that they enjoyed Slammers because it certainly makes packing a mid day or afternoon snack a no brainer for this mom, its healthy and convenient.
