Review: Bitsy's Brainfood snacks

Earlier this week my kids and I were on our way out the door when we saw a package waiting for us by the front door.  We opened it and found a lunchbox, water bottle and some small boxes of cookies. So we filled up the water bottle and continued on our outing.  Perfect timing! The snacks were from Bitsy's Brainfood and they were delicious and healthy! Here's a bit about Bitsy's Brainfood, from its website:

Bitsy's Brainfood was started by two new moms who shared a simple belief — that healthy bodies and healthy minds are connected, and that learning to eat smart should be fun.
The fact is that certain foods are smarter than others. So the idea was to create Bitsy's Brainfood, a line of smart snacks… bite-sized treats packed with the good stuff to help support developing bodies and brains, like vitamins and Omega-3, and packaged with content that's educational and oh-mega cool. Plus, we've yet to meet a kid who doesn't love snacks or a parent who doesn't crave nutritious, on-the-go options.
At Bitsy's, we believe that every moment is an opportunity for learning — even snack time. That's why for us, being healthy means celebrating the foods we want our kids to eat (we're not hiding any carrots around here) and inspiring them to learn and grow wherever and whenever we can: through interactive packaging, supercool stickers, characters that spark little imaginations, and a website designed to keep kids engaged and mentally active until it's time to go back outside and play.
We tried both the Lemon Broccoli and the Sweet Potato Oatmeal Raisin cookies and both were delicious! My kids knew that what they were eating was healthy, but they didn't mind in the least. They still have the boxes that the cookies came in, and they keep checking to see if there are any more cookies in there. Sadly, there has been no magical reappearance of more cookies.  You can also get Bitsy's Brainfood cookies in Zucchini Carrot Gingerbread and Chocolate Orange Beet.  Right now these snacks are only available online, but I hope to see them in my local stores soon!
