If you’ve been following The Peaceful Mom $125 Budget Weekly Menus for a bit then you know that we are not big snackers. We usually eat protein at each meal so my kids are rarely hungry in between meals.
I do love having convenient, healthy snacks available though, just in case someone has a case of the munchies. Our faves are air popped popcorn, raw nuts and seeds, as well as dried fruit. Typically our dried fruit choices are raisins and dried cranberries so I was excited to recently discover Sunsweet’s Pacific Tropicals dried fruit to mix things up a bit.
I love that the fruit pieces are chunky and easy to grab. They’re perfect for on-the-go snacking, traveling or munching on while you’re at home.
Sunsweet Tropicals are available in several varieties. The Philippine Mango comes in thick soft pieces and the Philippine Pineapple is cut into nice large juicy chunks.
Two of our favorites are the new flavors: Thai Coconut Chip and Philippine Green Mango. We especially love the Thai Coconut Chips because they are crunchy and have a hint of vanilla but they’re not overly sweet.They are great alone or in a trail mix for those days when you’re in the car with the kids and need something quick and healthy.
The Philippine Green Mangos are delicious as well. They have just the right amount of tanginess and crunch to make a fantastic snack but without the crumbly mess produced by some snack foods.

My tropical paradise destination would be Hawaii. The beautiful islands surrounded with inviting sandy beaches, palm trees, and adventures are a tropical paradise my family would love.
I’ve never been on a cruise.So I picked cruise!

I can not wait to try the mango…I hope one of my stores carries these.
I teach and often need an afternoon snack. I keep things like almonds in my desk but sometimes wish it was something sweet!
