Family Friendly Healthy Gift Box Snack Foods That Also Taste Great + 25% Off Savings

Good Food

Health nuts like me are always on the look out for the next big thing in healthy good-for-you natural foods to feed my active family of six, including four teens. Even those of you just seeking reasonably-priced, great tasting food that will satisfy your kids growing appetites are likely to be interested in this post which is all about a health snack startup that cares as much as you do about proper nutrition, a brand that was created to help kids and adults at every stage of life eat healthier and live well.

Healthy Snacks Overflow out of the NatureBox
"Food and nutrition play a vital role in life and with the right tools, we believe that anyone can be healthy," explains Gautam Gupta, co-founder of NatureBox. "Even slight changes to daily diet can amount to meaningful impact in how you enjoy life."

That's the premise upon which NatureBox was built. A company that enlists the talents of its passionate team of health foodies who scour the world in search of the most unique, tasty, and healthiest snacks on the planet. But this is no ordinary consumer food brand and you won't find their exclusive healthful items in any store. Instead, the company's delicious and nutritious foods are only available online from, delivered straight to your door. With the convenience of at-home delivery, eating well couldn't be any easier, whether you're snacking out of the bag on the go or incorporating their health morsels into a range of simple to gourmet recipes you cook at home for your family 

The NatureBox sent to us recently was one-of-a-kind and seriously delicious. Inside the tastefully (figuratively and literally) presentation box were five full-size vegan natural snacks for my family to sample  
  • Roasted Garlic Pumpkin Seeds
  • Chipotle Maple Almonds
  • Country Ranch Peas
  • Carrot Chips
  • Cinnamon Spiced Granola
NatureBox Roasted Garlic Pumpkin Seeds
Every product the company offers adheres to the same strict nutritional standards which means there is 
  • No High Fructose
  • No Partially Hydrogenated Oils
  • No Trans Fats
  • No Artificial Sweeteners
  • No Artificial Flavors
  • No Artificial Colors

For sure, each of the delectable treats we received were yummy savored out of the package but they also inspired me to cook up some equally healthy main and side dishes for dinner. The box included a recipe card if you need some ideas to prepare a meal with the products. Alternately, you can dream up your own concoctions with the ingredients you receive. 

That's what I did, creating two original recipes using the NatureBox Roasted Garlic Pumpkin Seeds including Sweet Savory Broiled Salmon with Dill & Roasted Pumpkin Seeds and Roasted Squash With Rosemary and Pumpkin Seeds. I love that the pumpkin seeds come shelled and seasoned, ready to add to whatever I'm stirring up. Definitely my favorite selection in the package that arrived on our family's doorstep. 

And I can't wait to create some more sumptuous dishes with the other packages that came in our box.

My Roasted Squash with Rosemary & Pumpkin Seeds
Each Nature Box always ships free and is uniquely themed, nutritionist-approved and beautifully packaged featuring an eclectic selection of full-size healthy snack treats. When you sign up for a subscription either for yourself or as a gift you can choose to discover new treats each month or you can personalize a NatureBox based upon specific dietary needs. 

The cost options include: $19.95/month for the deluxe package (5 full-size snacks), $29.95 for the family snacker (serves 4-5 people) and $59.95 for the professional snacker (serves 8-10). There is never a commitment or minimum to buy and you can cancel any time. Check out the various monthly healthy combo boxes that have been offered since July by the young and promising company.

There's a community service element too that I want to share with you. To help fight hunger in the U.S., NatureBox donates one meal for every box sold to help feed over 14 million children in America who might go hungry.

These healthy boxes might be really good for your own family, but don't keep something this delicious to yourself. Instead, consider buying some as gifts, too -- they're perfect for giving for just about any occasion from birthdays to teacher and hostess gifts to just-because presents to healthy alternative gifts for Valentine's Day.
