The Good Crisp Company takes making the perfect chip very seriously. It took them over two years to create a chip that lives up to their high standards for taste while being free of allergens and artificial ingredients. Now, they have added Cheese Balls to the mix which are also absolutely delicious and free of the junk!

Smoothie Popsicles 

It can be hard to find a healthy dessert option for kids, and these Smoothie Popsicles do just the trick! Simply cut up some fresh blueberries and/or strawberries and add them to layers of Lifeway Kefir to create flavors in your popsicle molds!

Even though the name "kefir" might not sound like something kids will like, little ones actually dig the taste and smoothie quality of Kefir - especially in these frozen pops!
