Children love to eat and they love to snack. If you have an active preschooler, busy adolescent, or an energetic teenager—children need healthy snacks. Being hungry affects a child’s mood and behavior. Being hungry affects both physical and mental performance.

As your child grows and requires more nutrients for his or her body,  more food is required between meals.  Snacks are even more important. It is our role as parents to offer the healthiest snacks for our children. That means keeping processed heavily laden sugary and salty snacks out of the house and replacing them with healthier high protein snacks. I always found with my children that if I did not have "bad" snacks in the house they would not look for them.  The most important word an adult can use when is comes to bad snacks is "NO!" 

With these thoughts in mind, John and I created a nutritional snack that children can enjoy (and that parents can appreciate for its healthiness). Made from pasture-raised pork, Big John’s Nitrite-Free Bacon Snack Sticks are a healthy snack time option. These high protein no sugar snack sticks are perfect for your child's lunch box.  They are perfect for that after school snack or after sports work-out.  They are a perfect guilt-free snack.

Made from Circle B Ranch uncured bacon, these convenient and healthy snack sticks are full of bacon flavor that children will appreciate. They can choose from two flavors—Original for pure yummy taste or Jalapeno for a spicy adventure.

For a sweeter taste, they can try Big John’s Hawaiian Pork Snack Stick, which has a pineapple sweetness and only contains 1 gram of sugar that comes from the dried pineapple. We do not use any high fructose corn syrup or refined sugar in our snack sticks.

Parents shouldn’t have to question the quality of food they are feeding their children. Big John’s Snack Sticks will ease those worries about healthy snacking.  They deliver nutrition without the bad stuff, yet they offer kids a delicious and fulfilling snacking experience.
