Kids love to snack. Adults do too! Making snacks healthy is easy, especially with Navitas Naturals. Gluten and dairy-free, containing no refined sugar, and packed with superfoods, no guilt involved in this snacking!

We have tried Navitas Naturals Cacoa Goji Superfood Power Snack. Now we got to try Navitas Naturals - Hemp Superfood Power Snack Blueberry:

Navitas Naturals is adding Blueberry Hemp to their award-winning line of organic Navitas Power Snacks. Blueberry Hemp Navitas Power Snacks provide a diversity of the most nutrient-dense organic superfoods and organic seeds, fruits and nuts. These bite-sized cubes have a healthy whole food appearance, delicious flavor and rich chewy texture. Navitas Power Snacks do not contain refined sugar, preservatives and artificial colors and flavors. In addition to being certified organic they are also certified gluten-free, and are GMO-free and dairy-free...

Why Hemp? Nutrition experts recommend hemp seed because it's an easily digested complete protein source. It is also one of the richest vegetable sources of the Omega 3 & 6 essential fats, and in an ideal ratio to support human health. Hemp seed is also a plentiful source of fiber, vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, iron, zinc, and potassium.

Blueberries are famous for their delicious fruit flavor and abundance of phytonutrients, which many scientists believe provide powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that may protect against heart disease, colon cancer and other ailments. In addition to the organic hemp powder and dried blueberries, Blueberry Hemp Power Snacks are made with other leading organic functional food stars such as chia, maca, lucuma, camu camu and maqui, as well as other wholesome raw foods such as date paste, sesame seeds, cashews and sunflower seeds.


I recently brought these snacks into a 5th/6th grade science class I teach. We were looking for elements on labels, and of course we had to snack. The children loved these, and they weren't all from families that eat health food. I felt good about giving the kids some nourishment from wholesome, "sustainably-cultivated ingredients."


Disclosure: I was sent free samples of these products to review. No prior assurances were given as to whether the review would be positive or negative.
