  • Can I use sun butter for the peanut butter chocolate bites? I am not a really big fan of peanuts. Foods I loved when I was a kid that I don’t eat at all any more are smarties, cheese puffs, bagel pizzas, Kraft dinner and pop tarts. I was a picky eater and I loved kraft dinner but it hates me a bunch now!

  • These recipes look so good, i would happily make all of them for myself! �� But why is it ‘Erb’? Why is the H not pronounced? Is that just the way the company wants it pronounced? Because for most of the world, like Canada as you said, the h in herb is definitely not silent.

  • Do more of these!!! Please! I so need more healthy ideas/recipes for my 3 year old son to help me with! Maybe a kid friendly series? Darling children! I’m loving the gluten-free options as well! ��❤️

  • Definitely going to make these for my daughterwe have to keep pb at home onlyin America we cannot send kids to school with it but that’s ok cause I can share with her!

  • I felt so bad for Ella, you never returned her affection towards u. It looked as if you were more annoyed than happy. But then again I’m a softy at heart and your her aunt. You obviously love her more than anyone else. Sorry, just irritated me when she kissed u and u didn’t kiss her back or hug her when she said “i got you.”

  • Loved the video! I absolutely will try the pizzas and the energy bites! Could you maybe help healthy chips? I have an obsession with them specially the ones with spices but I know they’re not good for you so it’s a struggle! I hope you and Matt were okay after the attacks in Toronto #StayStrongToronto

  • I love iherb. A lot of good food and cosmetics, and price is usually better then in stores in Canada. Delivery in Vancouver is about 7-10 days

  • Hey Nikole! Happy Monday�� I have to do those blueberry Vanilla Crisp treats������ yum yum ��. All of the snacks looks delicious �� #HealthNutFam�������� #WeRock #YallRock #500k

  • I love these & those little hands!! ������ Does anyone else watch healthy kids snack videos and think I’m an adult with no kids but I need to make these ����? ❤️❤️ -Raquel

  • Ooooo!!!! These snacks are all calling my name! I also have a 3 yr old that would LOVE them too, I just know it! And your niece and nephew are too darn cute!! Seriously! That little kiss from Ella! ����������

  • Looks yummy! Definitely going to try ‘em. Also, can you make a video on Home remedies for curing acne or blackheads please? #healthnutfam ��������������������������������������������
