Whenever we get home from a busy day at work and Olly’s been to pre-school there’s always that lull period. The bit inbetween getting home and sitting down to eat dinner where everyone is usually hungry and they just need a snack to tide them over. We were recently sent some ChewyMoon healthy snacks to try out and we were intrigued to find out more about them.
ChewyMoon are a healthy snack subscription service, costing just £4.93 per week (including postage) for snacks delivered straight to your door. They’re packaged in a box that fits through the letterbox so you don’t have to be in to receive them. Within each box are 5 individually packed snacks that are said to be ‘guilt-free after school treats for growing kids’.
The ChewyMoon box was addressed to Olly, which made his day and he loved the packaging which showed different animals dressed in stylish clothes and fancy dress. The packaging certainly attracted Olly’s interest. Within the box was 5 different snacks, a nutritional leaflet for grown ups, a comic sheet, an insect factsheet and a pop out and make character.
The healthy snacks are wrapped individually. Each box is labelled with the contents and then inside each box is a sealed plastic bag with the snack inside. Olly needed help opening the snacks and I struggled to tell him what was inside the snack pack without the nutritional leaflet. I would like to see what the snacks are on the packaging as it’s not easy to remember what’s inside them without remembering to grab the nutritional leaflet if you’re out and about with the children.
Olly can be a fussy wotsit with his snacks. If he doesn’t like the look of something, he won’t try it let alone eat it so I had to be really careful about the snacks he tried. He tried all of the sweet snacks and especially loved the strawberry shapes in the Jack n’Berries pack. He wasn’t too fussed with the flapjack but he’s not keen on flapjacks anyway.
It’s good to know that all the snacks are made with natural ingredients so you know exactly what your children are eating. We loved the smoothie chips in the Crazy Crunch and all of the Freaky Fruits. They are a great way to get children to eat fruits in a fun, natural way without the added sugar, additives and preservatives.
It’s worth noting that the snacks are not suitable for vegetarians and may contain products that allergy sufferers are allergic to. I’d recommend always read the nutritional facts before trying them.
Overall, we’ve been happy to try the new ChewyMoon subscription box and Olly has enjoyed trying out some new snacks. If you head over to the ChewyMoon website, you can try out your first box for free (postage is just 98p).
