This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Lance Snacks.
I have a real problem finding snacks that I can pack for my kids that I know they will love and I don’t feel guilty buying. My twins are great eaters, but they love pointing out all the “garbage” snacks (as I call it) that their friends get at school. I want to give them something that won’t end up in the garbage and that they will ask for again.
We had the chance to taste some new snacks from Lance and they were a huge hit.
Chances are you have eaten some of the products from Lance snacks.
With no preservatives, no trans fat and no high fructose corn syrup, Lance Sandwich Crackers are very well topping my snack go-to list when shopping for snacks. Plus, every Lance sandwich cracker is baked fresh with real peanut butter or real cheese filling!
They are a perfect size for the diaper bag or snack bag and are just enough for the kids or I.
My sons both love the real sharp cheddar or cheddar on whole grain crackers and my daughter’s favorite is the peanut butter on whole grain crackers.
My favorite is the 100 calorie sizes snacks of its cheeses or peanut butter varieties. I love that I can throw one into my purse or car and fight off my hunger so I don’t have to buy $80 worth of food I don’t need at the grocery store (women, I know you know what I am talking about!)
Tell me what are your family’s favorite snacks for school lunches or anytime?

Awhile back I had the chance to review a great stroller from Baby Planet and I loved it as much as I loved the company. Baby Planet now has added something else to its resume besides great strollers, a bassinet. Not just any bassinet, the Eden is a convertible bassinet!
Bassinets tend to be pricey and the baby grows out of it within a few short months, the Eden bassinet converts to a toddler seat for extended use, up to two years! This bassinet has clean sleek lines and is beautifully modern, it will look good with any decor. The “Easy Release” hand grips have an internal trigger to release the bed from its latched position, on the base, allowing you to move it around the house! I love this idea because then you do not need a Moses basket or another bassinet downstairs. It has soothing, peaceful music and dual speed vibration to help your baby soothe himself to sleep. Below the bed is an easily accessible storage basket to keep essentials like burp cloths diapers and wipes.
The Eden also takes part in Baby Planet’s industry leading Recycling Program. When it has outlived its life, Baby Planet will take it back and disassemble the bassinet, so the parts can go to recycling centers and stay out of land fills. So eco-friendly!
I love that this bassinet is useful after your baby grows out of it and that the bassinet materials are machine washable, which anyone with a baby knows is so important.
The only negative I can think of is that it only comes in the color/pattern seen here.
