Smarter Celebrating


Looking for some treats to spice up your next summertime festivity that are tasty and good for you? Keep it simple with these snack ideas that are sure to please every party-goer’s palate, no matter the event.

THE OCCASION: POOL PARTY
This go-to summertime treat is a crowd-pleaser for a reason: Not only is it super-simple, fruit is packed full of nutrients, and the warmer weather provides plenty of options to choose from. Have your child help pick out his favorite fruits on your next trip to the farmers’ market, then create his own mini works of art (and help you prep pre-party!) by placing them on bamboo sticks—perfect for snacking poolside!
THE OCCASION: FOURTH OF JULY COOKOUT
Swap out the hot dogs and hamburgers for better-for-you personalized pizzas. Coat pitas evenly with olive oil then set them out alongside fresh veggies, cheese, and sauces and spices as a makeshift toppings bar for guests to build their own pie. Then, grill ‘em up to order for a yummy BBQ alternative.

THE OCCASION: BIRTHDAY PARTY
Looking for a quick and easy alternative to your traditional birthday cake? Try a soda cake or, even easier, cupcakes! All you need are two ingredients: One box of all-natural cake mix and a can of Zevia, a zero calorie, natural soda sweetened with stevia. Plus, with 15 Zevia flavors to choose from, your birthday treats are endless.

Moms are trying Zevia Zero Calorie Soda. Check out what they had to say.
