The mom-hunt for healthy and nutritious snacks is real and seems never ending. Since we are always on-the-go, I am constantly on the lookout for quick, easy and most importantly, healthy snacks to have on hand for my kids. With summer upon us, barbecues and ice cream trucks make an easy distraction from our healthy eating habits, but I still try to make every effort to maintain their well-balanced lifestyle, while still leaving some room to indulge!
GoGo squeeZ has been in our snack arsenal for ages. Their products are made with real fruits, veggies, yogurt and juice. They are focused on healthy foods, offering over 30 different varieties. As my kids grow older, you wouldn’t expect them to be interested in the squeeze pouches; but, I have to be honest, they still love them.
It is so important for me to continue making healthy snacking a priority. If you look in their backpacks, lunch bags, or any one of my handbags, you will definitely find several GoGo squeeZ pouches, in flavors from applesauce to yogurtZ.
GoGo SqueeZ has recently introduced a new blueberry yogurtZ flavor which is pretty scrumptious! The best thing about these yogurts is that they don’t need to be refrigerated, making travel even easier. My kids love yogurt, so I am thrilled that the GoGo YogurtZ are made with real yogurt and fruit, that include protein, vitamin D and calcium, too.
Speaking of yogurt and dairy products… Did you know that June is National Dairy Month? Dairy is really important for the whole family! The body of science indicates that eating nutritious dairy foods, such as milk, cheese and yogurt improves bone health, especially in children and adolescents.
If you haven’t already tried my favorite go-to snack I urge you to give every GoGo squeeZ flavor a whirl—or at least celebrate National Dairy Month and pick up a few boxes of the yogurtZ flavors. You will definitely develop a healthy addiction to them like my kids and I have.
The GoGo squeeZ dairy snacks are affordable and available nationally at stores like Walmart & Target and most major retailers like Kroger, Publix, BJ’s, Shoprite, and more!
To celebrate National Dairy Month, here is a fun smoothie recipe for you to try this summer! And for more tips and taste test ideas check out Action for Healthy Kids, GoGo squeeZ’s partner organization, click here!
