Barbara's Snackimals Cereals - Vanilla Blast & Cinnamon Crunch

Ever since my husband and I became parents, we knew we wanted to provide our children with wholesome foods. Our preference has always leaned towards natural and organic foods so it wasn't long after our first-born began to snack on solids that we discovered Barbara's Cereals. We also found ourselves stocking our pantry with their fig bars and Snackimals cookies. Using high quality ingredients, Barbara's has been creating wholesome snacks and cereals that have no refined sugar or hydrogenated oils for more than 40 years. 

Barbara's Snackimals Cereals - Cinnamon Crunch

Our family recently had a chance to sample two varieties of Barbara's Organic Snackimals Cereals: Vanilla Blast and Cinnamon Crunch. Of the two flavours, vanilla was the clear winner. We even offered a box to the neighbour's kids down the street and they picked vanilla over cinnamon, too. To be honest, I'm not surprised. I personally have to be in the mood for cinnamon. Our family doesn't use cinnamon often and so I think my kids don't have much of an appetite for it. In fact, they would only have the vanilla cereal for breakfast. The stuff was gone before I had a chance to sample it myself!

What I tried instead was adding the cinnamon Snackimals cereal to a snack tray and left it out on the table after school. I noticed my son nibbling on some of it and had one of those "a-ha" moments. Forget about offering the cinnamon variety at breakfast and just keep it on hand for snacks. They are 'Snack'imals, after all!

I also kept refilling our new reusable snack bag that Barbara's sent over. It's perfect for packing a quick snack for when we head out to the park or on a road trip to visit my family in Hamilton. Snackimals makes for a perfect bite-sized snack while on the go. Though, my favourite Barbara's product will always be their Snackimals Chocolate Chip Cookies.

They also have a new Chocolate Crisp Cereal that I'd like to try next. Can you tell I like chocolate? Of course, it's an added bonus that Barbara's Snackimals are a source of fibre made with organic ingredients and whole grains, and one serving contains only 7 g of sugar. They are also non-gmo verified. Plus, a portion of proceeds from every box sold will support Earth Rangers animal ambassadors and conservation education programs across Canada. Music to my ears!
