Where do I start

Before all the trolls decide to visit and make a comment, take a moment and step back.

I chose to allow this to be the way it is and why because I became stagnant, The next troll who says I am being a martyr or just looking for attention maybe I am. The thing is I am CHOOSING to realign myself back to the world of social and blogging. Yes there is a lot to learn, do I expect to be an expert NO but I think I am intuitive enough to understand and ask.

Why I hate my site:

  1. My old site I LOST IT ALL. I didn’t back it up to 3 years of content and development is in the black hole
  2. WordPress – allow me to be your mistress and guide me to where I need to be or just basically I need to get $10 and go to @udemy to learn. I think the latter is my answer
  3. Themes in the last 2 months I been changing my theme and I continue to mess it up so if you have any suggestions for free themes for now and plugins that should be here those comments are welcome.

To all a good night

About Us

GREAT Kids Snacks
It is our mission to make healthy snacking convenient and fun for families while introducing them to new products they might not have had the opportunity to try before.

Kyle Atkinson – Founder

My journey of being a collegiate athlete, personal trainer, and high school basketball coach has led me to start GREAT Kids Snacks. I believe it is important to teach kids about the benefits of healthy eating so it can be a lifestyle they want to live as they grow up. Part of teaching them about healthy eating is being able to provide them with easy and convenient access to organic and all-natural products. Since studies show that kids consume almost 30% of their daily calories through snacks, what better way to teach them than to provide them with healthy snack options?

How GREAT Kids Snacks began, a message from Kyle

GREAT Kids Snacks all started when I was at the San Diego Zoo chaperoning a kindergarten field trip. I expected to see some amazing animals and kids running around behaving like wild animals, but when it came to feeding time I was shocked. It almost seemed like the animals in captivity were eating better than the kids. The school provided “lunch” for some kids, which consisted of a juice, canned chicken salad (it made me gag), graham crackers, and applesauce of some sort. Every single kid only ate the graham crackers and drank the juice. As for the kids who were lucky enough for mom or dad to pack their lunch, it was not much better. I saw a lot of “lunchables”, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, sodas, sugary juices, and candy bars. I thought I was going to be amazed by the animals; instead I was amazed by what these kids were provided to eat. It wasn’t the kids who determined what their lunch was going to be, but some adult who made a conscious decision to feed these kids that way.

This got me thinking, are these parents clueless when it comes to what is healthy, do they not buy healthy foods, did they throw what ever was closest to them in a bag, did they not have time to make something healthier? These questions in my head brought me to the conclusion that there needs to be a convenient way for parents to provide their children with healthy foods. Starting with snacks, I have set out to make parents lives easier by sending a box to their door of 30 individually wrapped snacks made of organic and all-natural ingredients. I believe the convenience factors of not having to determine if something is healthy or not, and not having to venture down countless isles at the grocery store will help parents provide their kids with the foods that growing children should be and deserve to be eating.

I wanted to take the stress out of wondering if a snack is actually healthy? What if my child doesn’t like this? Do I have enough time to stop at the store? You can be assured all 30 of the snacks, are healthy and will arrive at your doorstep by the 1st of every month. We all know kids are picky eaters and as a parent it can be a struggle to find out what they like or don’t like. The variety in the GREAT Kids Snack Box allows a kid to sample 30 different snacks every month with the option to order his or her favorites in bulk. It would be extremely costly and time consuming to shop and pick out 30 different snacks, which most of the time come in boxes of 4-7 packages. Parents are the ones who make the decisions of what to buy and have available for their kid to eat. Sure kids are picky eaters but if they are hungry they are going to eat what is available to them. Therefore parents should provide them with real healthy food and not some artificial thing chemically designed to imitate food. Luckily our snacks get kid tested for taste and nutritionist approved for ingredients to make parents lives easier when it comes to snack time.

Alexa or OK Google – Why not both?


The only Alexa-Enabled device with a built in touchscreen extends early bird pricing

New York, March 31, 2017 – The Clarity Speaker, the first standalone device to provide access to both Alexa and Google voice services, has announced the extension of its presale campaign to April 30, 2017, following an overwhelming response. Clarity, which is also the first and only Alexa-enabled product to boast a fully-featured touchscreen, has also announced that it will offer access to both Google Now and Google Assistant when it ships in June, well ahead of the rumored Amazon Echo touchscreen.

From blasting out favorite Spotify playlists to watching blockbuster movies, the android-powered touchscreen speaker offers great entertainment capabilities and acts as the hub for smart home automation while offering the power and skills of both Alexa and Google voice assistants. Clarity fuses the convenience and functionality of a conventional tablet with the dynamic possibilities of a smart voice-activated, connected speaker. During the extended presale period, Clarity can be purchased for $149 ahead of its shipping price of $199.

Awesome Audio 

Clarity is a powerful, super lightweight, super portable Bluetooth and WiFi connected speaker, ideal for listening to music, podcasts or audio books.  Content can be played from connected personal devices, internet radio stations or streaming services such as Spotify and Pandora.

Its two 5-watt speakers and spacious sound chambers deliver exceptional sound performance, and at just 2lbs with a six hour playback battery life, Clarity can be enjoyed anywhere.

Two Voices Are Better Than one

Clarity is the first device to allow people to use both the Amazon Alexa and Google voice assistants. A range of service and skills can be accessed through simple voice commands, such as “Alexa read the news”,  “Alexa play Adele”, “Hey Google show me the route to the office” and “OK Google set my alarm for 7 a.m.”  Because Clarity also has a built in touchscreen, it can display as well as play results found by these services.

Hub of the Connected Home

With Clarity, users can control and manage every aspect of the connected home. Using voice commands to control Alexa or Google, or leveraging the 7-inch touchscreen, users can control a range of devices including Nest, TP-Link, Samsung SmartThings, Insteon, Ecobee, Wemo and Hue Personal Wireless Lighting.

There’s an App for That

Clarity’s 7-inch touchscreen and built in camera allows it act as an android powered tablet providing access to apps and services you would find on any traditional device. From watching Netflix movies to video chatting and Skyping with family and friends, users can access and enjoy any of their favorite apps from the Google Play store.

Tech Specs and Availability

Clarity will ship in June 2017, priced $199. An early bird price of $149 is available through to April 30, 2017, on Indiegogo. Its full features include:

  • Compact lightweight design – Dimensions 326 x 110 x 160mm | weight 2lbs
  • 7-inch multi-touch screen with 1280×800 resolution
  • Advanced near and far field capabilities

  • Android 6.0 Marshmallow
  • 1600 mAh Li-Poly battery providing six hours of audio and 2.5 hours of video playback

Clarity is designed and manufactured by Pan Sea Co., Ltd., a company with a proven track record specializing in intelligent electro-acoustic products such as SoundPad. Its team has more than 20 years of experience in consumer electronics and acoustic technology and has spent three years developing Clarity.

“The response and demand for Clarity has been fantastic, beating all of our expectations,” said Dake Liu, CEO of Pan Sea Co. “We are proud to have developed an intuitive device with a number of industry firsts and are extending our presale campaign after popular demand to give even more people the chance to secure the Clarity Speaker at a discounted price.”
