For Snack Attacks: Naturebox

Sometimes you get so hungry it’s hard not to grab anything in sight and start chowing. This delivery service isn’t for meals but rather fills your house with healthy snacks so you can avoid polishing off a bag of potato chips in desperation. Instead, munch on snacks like bruschetta pretzel pops, roasted sea salt chickpeas and South Pacific plantains. The site allows you to customize your selections so you can go nut free, lactose free or just choose what tastes most delicious to you. When your baby gets old enough to snack these selections are perfect to keep in your diaper bag. Plus you can feel good about snacking — their partnership with Feeding America has them donating one meal for every snack box sold.

How it works: Pick from three different sized boxes (containing 5, 10 or 20 full sized-packages). From there choose your snacks or let them surprise you with choices.

Cost: $19.95/month for the deluxe box — the perfect size for 1-3 people and contains five snack bags.

Delivery area: Ships nationwide
