Here at Snikiddy, there is no more rewarding mission than providing better options for families looking to find great products that fit their healthy lifestyle and help their kids make better food choices. Thus, when asked to jump in headfirst to lead the Snikiddy business and help Mary fulfill her vision, the answer was a resounding yes!  I’ve had the pleasure of guiding some great brands throughout my career, and Snikiddy sits at the top. We are strong believers that simple, wholesome ingredients make the best tasting products and that no calories should be empty ones.  Most importantly, we believe our bodies must use the calories we eat, so a healthy dose of play is always on the family schedule. Good fortune has brought us home to Colorado where as a family, we get to ski, run and ride in our very large Rocky Mountain playground.
