Making Healthy Snacking Easy With Progressive #Giveaway 5/23 CLOSED



I have no problem with my kids snacking in between meals.  However, I like to offer them healthy snacks.  This does require a little more prep, but in the long run it is worth it.  What kind of healthy snack options do you give to your kids?  Healthy snacking isn't just a good idea for kids, but also adults.  I try and eat snacks in between meals to hold me over.  I like snacks like fruits and veggies as a healthy option.

Progressive is a company that makes so many great kitchen gadgets.  Their kitchen products help make cooking in the kitchen easier and quicker.  I am all for that!  They offer products for the kitchen that include baking items, strainers, cutting boards, peppermills, and much more!  What is your favorite kitchen gadget that saves you time?  Progressive sent me a great assortment of items that help me prepare quick and healthy snacks for my family.    



I received a set of their dip clips.  This is such a neat idea.  These are little containers that easily clip onto the side of a plate.  The dip clips keep the dip out of the rest of the food.  These are perfect for kids that are fussy and hate when their food gets mixed together.  Does anyone have a child like that?  The dip clips are perfect when I serve chicken nuggets with bbq sauce or veggies with dip.  This is a great way to truly keep the dip on the side!




I also have been using Progressive's Collapsable Mini Produce Keeper quite a bit.  This is perfect to store cut up veggies.  I love to keep cut up veggies in the fridge.  This is a great snack if you already have them cut up.  I love that the produce keeper keeps my little tomatoes fresh.  It does this because it has a vent and reservoir.  This can be used for more than veggies though.  You can use it for fruit and herbs too.  




Progressive's Mini Colander is the perfect size to rinse off a small portions of fruits and veggies.  I love the mini colander for rinsing off berries, cherry tomatoes, olives and so much more.  What would you use it for?  This colander is great because it has a base that catches the drips.  You can even let your kids snack directly out of it and not worry about water dripping all over.




My kids must eat at least an apple each a day.  It is one of mine and their favorite fruits.  They usually want the apples cut up.  Most of the time they are starving and want the apple cut immediately.  The Thin Apple Slicer from Progressive cuts up an apple super quickly.  The best part is that this cuts the apple up nice and thin.  This is the easiest apple slicer that I have ever used.  

I honestly hate cutting up melon.  It can be a chore.  The Melon Baller and Scoop from Progressive makes cutting up melon easy.  I love how easily this melon baller cuts through the melon.  It makes perfect little melon balls too!  The melon scoop is something I have never seen, but I love this idea.  This is the perfect way to remove seeds quickly.  It also will take the rind of the melon off of a slice perfectly!  

These are just some of the great products that Progressive offers.  You can also connect with them on Facebook to learn more.
