We all have our go to nibbles! I have to admit at times it’s hard to curb the temptation of chips, cookies and candy. When my daughter came along I was determined to lead by example. Did you know obesity is the fifth leading risk for global deaths? It’s a huge problem and what’s worse is childhood obesity. According to the CDC, childhood obesity numbers have tripled since the 1970s. Blame it on television and electronic devices (yes I’m sure a lack of exercise contributes immensely), but what are these kids eating? What are WE feeding them?
It’s our responsibility as parents to make healthy choices for our children, they depend on us to make them. Children will almost always pick a sugary cookie over a carrot stick, if given the choice. That’s why it’s our job to present choices that are both yummy and packed with nutritional value.
Who is BEAR Nibbles?
BEAR nibbles, a Bristish based company, has recently launched their products in the states. I was pleased to find out they put the utmost care into the ingredients they put in their snacks. Just one pouch contains a full serving of fruits!
These snacks are super easy for families who are on the go, so that’s basically everyone right?! I mean who isn’t busy these days between grocery shipping, managing the house and doing all the things it takes to be a super mom!
Hayley named her company BEAR after an article she read in 2009 that sounded all too familiar…The article studied bears that had drifted into cities to forage from behind junk food joints and bins. These city slickers were 30% fatter than their wild bear friends eating salmon and berries.
They were also 30% less active than the wild bears, and sadly all dead by the age of 10…whilst over 60% of the wild bears lived on healthily. This felt like a really simple picture of what BEAR was trying to do – to help people get back to eating as nature intended.
