Crisp. Fresh. Colorful. Mouth-watering. Drip-down-your-chin juicy. Sweet. Savoury. Organic. Local.
Did I grab your attention? Cool.
You know when you hear kids whine, “Why don’t we have anything to eeeeaat for snacks around heeeere?” Man. If I had $1.00 for every time I heard this…
I’m excited to show you how our family dug ourselves out of the cracker/chip/junk food snack time rut and discovered a healthy, fresh, fun solution. Together, we transformed lame ‘ole snack time into “Yay, Mommy! What do we get to choose for healthy snacks today?” I feel like Mom of the Year every day! Well, okay. For 30 minutes of every day, anyway.
Fun & Healthy Snacks start with Farm Fresh To You delivery service.
Believe me – this is no ordinary food delivery service.
Farm Fresh To You delivers fresh, organic, seasonal, locally-grown fruits and vegetables from the farm directly to your doorstep. You save time and money by skipping a trip to the dreaded grocery store. You just can’t rely on commercial grocery stores to provide high-quality, organic fruits and vegetables at these prices.
Here’s how it works…
Step 1. Visit the Farm Fresh To You website to see what’s growing this week/month.
Step 2. Create a login (this took me 2 minutes-literally). Select the CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) box which best suits your lifestyle. Customize your box by selecting Type, Size and Delivery Frequency you prefer. Two days prior to the delivery of your box, you’ll receive a reminder email asking if you’d like to add or remove individual produce items from your box. How cool is that? There’s no contract or financial commitment. You control your service as your needs and lifestyle change.
We ordered the Regular-size Mixed Fruit and Veggie Box, since we enjoy a largely vegetarian lifestyle. I thought we’d tried most fruits and veggies by now. But Farm Fresh To You surprised us. Just look at this gorgeous butter lettuce and this breakfast bowl of juicy pomegranate seeds over greek-style yogurt. Yum.
Step 3. Customize & Manage Your Service Online in the My Account tab. Say you or someone in your household has food allergies. Or your family won’t need tomatoes this week. Simply mark off the items on your Exclusion List under My Account at any time, and Farm Fresh To You remembers. You even have the option to add additional farm products such as eggs, nuts or dried fruit to your box.
Step 4. Wake up to find organic, locally-harvested farm-fresh produce and farm goods on your doorstep. Bon Appétit! Enjoy!
Best part of all? When you order directly from Farm Fresh To You, you avoid all those tempting, but not-so-healthy impulse buys you find in commercial grocery stores and chains. Instead, you’ll snack on treats like sweet organic carrots and hummus.
Our favourite feature on the Farm Fresh To You website is their “What We Grow” page. It lists which foods are grown in each month. We check it out each week, plan what we’ll order in our upcoming box, and meal planning is a cinch! Of course, the kids enjoy knowing which new snacks we’ll get to try next!
Since I love YOU and Farm Fresh To You so much, I’m gonna hook you up right now.

Here’s a fun anecdote of my Grandmother’s (a Mother to 5 adventurous eaters!) successful technique for encouraging kiddos to taste unfamiliar fruits or vegetables. The secret? All the adults and older kids at the table make the enjoyment of the new food appear completely irresistible.
First, one adult looks to the far end of the table, where the beautiful new veggie sits.
“Darling, will you please pass the asparagus spears?” As each person passes down the asparagus, the young ones hear each person convey excitement over the new vegetable.
“Ahhh…that looks so yummy.”
“Man, I can’t wait to try those asparagus spears!”
The “lead taster” takes a portion. She slowly tastes it, savours it, as everyone else at the table looks on. She says to her partner, “Oh, Honey. You simply must try these asparagus spears. They are di-vine!”
See that? Next thing you know, the younger kids can’t resist trying a tiny “Yes, please” portion. They want IN on the action! Just don’t be surprised if they want more than one portion. ;)
Come join the fun & healthy snack revolution! Hop on over to Farm Fresh To You today. You’ll feel so good you did!
