Have Your Kids Snack Smart with Non-GMO Snacks

Have Your Kids Snack Smart with Non-GMO Snacks

“Can I have a snack?” is probably the first thing a parent hears when their kids arrive home from school. Kids are always hungry, it's a miracle they haven’t eaten you out of house and home yet. Even more challenging, however, is deciding what to feed them. They’re probably begging for treats like cookies or potato chips. But not only are those snacks unhealthy, they likely contain GMOs. Luckily for you, Plant Snacks has delicious, kid-friendly, non-gmo snacks that are sure to please even the pickiest eaters.

Why Do You Need Non-GMO Afterschool Snacks?

You’ve probably heard of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and their counterparts, non-GMOs. This scientific undertaking started with honorable intentions in improving nutrition and higher crop yields. However, gene-splicing and biotechnology (genetic engineering) has shown almost the opposite effect on crops, and actually decrease nutritional benefits. 

GMOs have also given large agricultural corporations an unfair advantage through patent laws, leading to smaller farmers losing their businesses because they don’t use GMO seeds. According to the Non-GMO Project, “more than 80% of all genetically modified crops grown worldwide have been engineered for herbicide tolerance. As a result, the use of toxic herbicides, such as Roundup [glyphosate], has increased fifteen fold since GMOs were first introduced.” 

Besides the ethical concerns, GMOs pose great risks for you and your children. Studies have linked GMO’s to allergies, digestive issues, tumors, damaged immune systems, and other health concerns. For children, GMOs are even more dangerous because their effects happen quicker in fast-growing, developing bodies. Children are also more susceptible to allergies, nutritional problems, and the other issues connected to GMOs. It's important to keep these out of their diets as much as possible.

After School Snack Ideas from Plant Snacks

However, this is easier said than done. Over 80% of all products you’ll find on your supermarket shelves contain some form of GMOs. Fear not, Plant Snacks is here to save the day! We specialize in non-gmo chips and non-gmo crackers. We designed these snacks to be healthy alternatives to the unhealthy, GMO-infested options your kids are begging you for. No one should have to sacrifice taste for nutrition, especially not our growing kids.

Our non-gmo chips and crackers (called Thins) are verified non-GMO by the Non-GMO Project itself. All the ingredients are organic and plant-based, made from a blend of whole ground corn flour, pea protein, safflower oil, and other healthy foods. They’re also gluten-free, dairy free, contain minerals like Vitamin D, and have three grams of protein and fiber per serving! 

But the best part of our snacks is the kid-friendly taste. We spent hours researching what made the most popular chips and crackers so tasty, then sought to re-create those irresistible tastes in our own snacks. As a result, we offer our non-gmo crackers and chips in delicious flavors like Ranch, Nacho Cheese, Sea Salt, and Cheddar, to name a few. Your kids won’t even realize that they are eating something healthy!

These snacks work great on their own, but you can also combine them with other healthy items for an even more satisfying snack. Some of our favorites include vegan cheese boards, spinach dips, and guacamole.
