Back To School Snacking With NatureBox


It’s time to pack lunches for your kiddos and send them back to school with healthy and nutritious snacks. Living in California our girls spend time outdoors at several points during the day, it’s hot here still and even though school just started our girls need that snack before lunch. I always make sure to pack that healthy and quick snack they can eat during recess or morning breaks and I know they look forward to trying new things.

NatureBox is the unique service that sends snacks to your home every month. When you join NatureBox, you’ll receive five different snacks every month. You can choose the snacks you want or be surprised with their carefully curated selections. Each snack contains wholesome ingredients – with no artificial sweeteners, flavors or colors.


It’s a fun idea to let your children pick their own snacks and each month try something new. The blueberry nom noms were the first to go form our box and other favorites included flax seed mini crostini bites and bbq kettle kernels.

I always like to add something fun to every lunchbox I create for our girls. A fun crunchy snack to keep lunch fun and exciting.


Creating a unique lunch is so simple and the more I am making lunch for my Kindergartner the more creative I am getting. This week she asked me for a fun heart inspired lunch so with mini cutouts I was able to create a fun and healthy lunch that is filled with fun flavors and new textures.

Something as simple as sprinkles on yogurt and heart shaped cucumber provides a fun and exciting lunch. I created an English Muffin sandwich to match the adorable heart shaped cookie for lunch. Using the bbq kettle kernels from NatureBox and the Flax Bites I created that fun and crunchy snack. Two small pieces of broccoli are growing out of the kernels. You can find more flavors and snack offerings on the online catalog.

It’s so easy to create that fun lunch and to keep your kiddos healthy with a fun and flavorful lunchbox. With NatureBox it’s easy and it’s an easy idea for busy moms for snacks and lunchbox ideas! We also like that the bags are resealable so even after school we can throw them in the dance bag or take them to other after school activities.

    Cute lunch ideas! I love nature box.

  7. Shasta Walton on August 26, 2014 at 2:35 pm

    I always thought these lunches were super expensive. I will have to make some notes and start adding some cuteness to my daughters lunches. These snacks look good, not just for the kids, but for me too!

  8. Melilsa on August 26, 2014 at 1:29 pm

    They have some yummy treats. We try to add lot’s of fruits and veggies in our kids lunches 🙂

    Love Nature Box, the bbq kernels are my favorite! Fantastic lunch idea!

  10. Lisa on August 26, 2014 at 11:29 am

    That’s a lunch even I would love to have. My kids love the Del Monte Fruit Squeezes and they make lunch easy too!

  11. Jeanine @ sixtimemommy.com on August 26, 2014 at 9:24 am

    Such a great idea. We love bento box lunches here, so I should look into this box too! Anything healthy and okay for lunches is a plus!

  12. Chrystal @ YUM eating on August 26, 2014 at 8:59 am

  16. Ben @ Cheap is the New Classy on August 26, 2014 at 7:13 am

    I wish I’d had a cool lunch box like that when I was a kid. I ate mostly turkey sandwiches and PB&J.

  17. Tiffany (Fabulous Mom Blog) on August 26, 2014 at 5:22 am

    What a healthy looking lunch w/ snacks. I still can’t believe it’s back to school time once again.

    These look like really deliciois snacks. I am sure my kids will love them!

  23. Ben - Gentlebim on August 25, 2014 at 7:21 pm

    This is a great looking lunch. I’m going to have to up my game. I mean, how many PB&Js can a kid eat, really?

  24. Stacie @ The Divine Miss Mommy on August 25, 2014 at 7:19 pm

    I love that snack mix you made. This is a tasty looking lunch.

  25. Shannon Gosney on August 25, 2014 at 7:13 pm

    I haven’t heard of this brand before. Sounds like some yummy snacks for everyone! Love the lunch boxes you made too!

  26. Shell on August 25, 2014 at 7:07 pm

    Your lunches are so cute! I try to make the things in my boys’ lunches have simple ingredients.

  27. Carly Anderson on August 25, 2014 at 6:52 pm

    This is my first time ever hearing of NatureBox. All of those snacks look so delicious, though!

  28. Amanda on August 25, 2014 at 6:34 pm

    I love Nature Box! Perfect for snacks and a great gift too!

  29. Marybeth Hamilton on August 25, 2014 at 6:30 pm

    I’ve heard a lot about Naturebox. I love that it makes packing lunches easier!

  30. Amy Desrosiers on August 25, 2014 at 5:40 pm

    I plan to add fresh fruit in fun shapes, block cheese, and yogurt to my kiddos lunchboxes. I am so excited for them to go back to school!!

  31. Pam on August 25, 2014 at 4:15 pm

    I have heard about NatureBox from some of my friends lately. It sounds like a great service. Those BBQ kettle kernels look good.

  32. Felicia on August 25, 2014 at 3:50 pm

    This looks like such a great idea. The boys could really use a few healthier snack ideas.

  33. Krystal on August 25, 2014 at 3:27 pm

    I love the heart shaped cucumbers. What a special touch!

  34. melinda on August 25, 2014 at 1:42 pm

    nuts are the one thing I didn’t buy for back to school. I love giving them a little trail mix for afternoon pick me ups

  35. Jenn on August 25, 2014 at 12:15 pm

    Love NatureBox. Ours had some sort of spicy corn chip that the kids went ape over.

  36. Jennifer Bullock {MommyBKnowsBest} on August 25, 2014 at 10:39 am

    First of all I love that they have a product called nom noms. Second, we are looking for great products to add to our kiddos lunches/snacks, they have to be nut-free though, are these? Sorry if I missed it.

  37. Jessica (Savory Experiments) on August 25, 2014 at 10:34 am

    Also perfect to keep in my desk drawer at work. Keep me away from the vending machine when a case of the munchies happens!

  38. Melissa @ This Girl's Life Blog on August 25, 2014 at 8:47 am

    What a great snack idea. I love the way you have the lunch box set up. Fun for kids!

  39. Jaime on August 25, 2014 at 7:58 am

    I do a lot of bento-style lunches for my son. He loves the different shapes and I can sneak healthier foods into his bag.

  40. Robin (Masshole Mommy) on August 25, 2014 at 3:58 am

    You pack good lunches. Can you stop by and pack some for my boys, too?

  41. Rosey on August 25, 2014 at 3:33 am

    It turned out cute as can be. I like that even the cucumbers are heart-shaped and the broccoli trees growing out of the snack mix is fun!

  42. Maryann D. on August 25, 2014 at 3:00 am

    These lunches do look fun and colorful! I would want them myself!

  43. Jennifer on August 24, 2014 at 8:19 pm

    YUM!! The BBQ ones sound so good. I love that you didn’t just put the snacks in their lunch but instead made a mix with the broccoli. Healthy and delicious – WINNING!

  44. Liz Mays on August 24, 2014 at 8:05 pm

    That’s a lunch that would make anyone smile. I love that snack mix you put together!

  45. Mary on August 24, 2014 at 8:04 pm

    That looks like such a tasty lunch. I love the designs of the different foods.
