Product Review: Munch of Fun

Hello again, Jocelyn here! Today we at Phat Girls are going to do our first ever Product Review!! I feel so important; like Oprah Winfrey, only less rich and famous. :)

Today's product for review is from the company Munch of Fun. This is a new company, started by a friend of mine, Kristen Griffiths.

Kristen's company began when she realized that Happy Meals weren't going to encourage her kids' eating habits to stay on the straight and narrow. Kids want fun. Kids want color. Kids want a toy prize for eating their food. Parents want their kids to stop whining. With 3 kids of my own, I completely understand this logic.

Kristen's goal is to show kids that healthy food IS happy food. And, if your kids are anything like mine, they're in it for the toy at the end; what they eat before the toy is inconsequential. If you look through her store, you'll see that her products are colorful, convenient, and completely healthy- perfect for road trips, ball games and practices, quick pick-me-ups, and getting your kids hungry whining out of your ear. ;)

So, I contacted Kristen and asked if I could have my kids be guinea pigs for Munch of Fun. She agreed (yea!) and sent me the Munch on Brunch and Fiber Favorite packs.

If you haven't met my kids, let me introduce you:

The Kid: age 7 
Hubby and I ruined this kid. Blame it on being first-time parents, but we just didn't force the eating uber healthy thing. If he likes something, he'll like it for life. This experiment is going to throw him for a loop.
The Girl: age 5 
Sassy as all get-out and willing to try anything. This girl's middle name is "Adventure" and she is her Daddy's girl. This experiment will be right up her alley. 

The Boy: age 5 
He's willing to try new things, when brother and sister are around. He is his Mother's son- not eager to step outside his comfort zone. This experiment might make him cry, until he realizes that he's having fun. :)

I told the kids we were doing a science experiment. We all had to try each of the items in the Special Box. After trying the different food we would judge using thumbs up (love), thumbs down (didn't like), and thumbs to the side (OK).
Ready? Here we go!

Munch on Brunch

Ready kids!

1. Pineapple Crisps

The Kid- Like (It's a miracle!!)
The Boy- Didn't like
The Girl- OK

2. Almonds

The Kid- Didn't like (no shock there)
The Boy- OK (he had more after the picture)
The Girl- Like (she finished the bag)


The Kid- OK (minor miracle)
The Boy- Like!
The Girl- Like!
The twins finished off the bag

Crackers and Chocolate/ Hazelnut Butter

The Kid- Liked the butter, not the cracker
The Boy- Liked it all!
The Girl- Liked the butter, not the cracker
We all agreed the butter would be great on whole wheat waffles.


Everyone liked it!

I count this "experiment" as a success! The kids had a great time, and I got the Kid to eat something other than chicken nuggets. Who says miracles don't happen anymore?
Thank you, Kristen for allowing us to be guinea pigs for you! I can safely say the kids will be looking forward to opening another special box from Munch of Fun!

p.s. You can follow Kristen's blog as well! She posts healthy, easy recipes for kids and busy moms!

p.p.s. The Fiber box is going to make it way to Melissa's house for her twin boys. We wanted to have a variety of ages!
