Our 5 Favourite Books

Munchachos Snacks Children: World Curiosity best kids books

Reading is SO important. It helps improve vocabulary and reduce stress. Most importantly though, it takes you to new worlds which inspire your imagination and stimulate your creativity.

It was International Literacy Day on the 8th September. To celebrate the day, we’ve compiled a list of our favourite books — full of gripping tales of action and adventure. Let’s dive in!


Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone: Difficulty ***

Harry Potter is a classic story loved by millions around the globe. It follows the story of Harry, a boy who finds out he’s a wizard and goes to Hogwarts, a wizarding school. He has many adventures fighting the evil Voldemort, which makes for a very entertaining book that’s hard to put down! And if you yearn for more when you finish the book (of course you will!) there are another 6 books after this one!

The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe: Difficulty **

This is a classic tale by C.S Lewis that is over 60 years old! It is the first of the series ‘the Chronicles of Narnia.’ Have you watched the film? It starts in War-torn London, where 5 kids are sent to a house in the countryside to protect them from bombings. One day, a game of hide-and-seek takes the kids through an unsuspecting closet into the magical world of Narnia.

War Horse: Difficulty *

Joey, a red-bay colt horse, is sold to an English farmer, whose son, Albert, raises the horse and teaches him to work their family farm. The horse is taken into World War 1 where he has to carry riders into battle and pull artillery cannons. It’s a gripping, bittersweet tale which is great for learning about the devastating effects of war, not just on the lives of humans but on animals’ lives too.

Matilda: Difficulty **

One of Roald Dahl’s best-loved stories, this book tells the tale of a girl and her family; the Wormwoods. Her father is a crook who cheats people on car sales, her mother barely acknowledges her existence, and her brother is mean to her. She does to a school where the headmistress, the infamous Trunchbull, rules with an iron fist. One day, Matilda discovers she has special powers, and she uses them to help the good people in her life and prevent bad people from hurting them. It’s a very funny, entertaining book! If you could pick any super power, what would it be? Let us know in the comments section below!

*Challenge yourself* The Lord of the Rings – Fellowship of the Ring: Difficulty *****

This is a very tough read, but it is also very rewarding. The lord of the rings spans 3 books, which follow the journey of Frodo, a Hobbit who must journey into the frightful land of Mordor to destroy a ring of evil which has fallen into his possession. The ring, forged by the dark lord Sauron, is of great importance to many different characters, who all try to take the ring off Frodo. It’s a long journey to Mordor, so hopefully he packed some Munchables for the road!

How this relates to who we are and what we do?

At Munchachos HQ, we believe that creativity is one of the most (if not the most) important skill to have in the modern world. The creativity of people has produced famous artworks, songs and films. It has brought our species to the deepest point on Earth and to the Moon and back. Creativity will play an even more important role as our world becomes more and more complicated. We believe that curiosity leads to greater creativity – we even wrote about it here.

Books are a fantastic way to inspire the imagination, so by providing a list of some of our favourite books, we hope our Munchachos around the world can hone their creativity and get inspiration.

Back to School (already)?

Munchachos Snacks Children: World Curiosity Back to school

Fellow Munchachos, can you believe that the new school year is about to start? It is almost time to see old friends, talk about all your summer adventures, continue learning the mysteries of our world and have fun!

It is always important to be prepared, so we’ve made a small checklist to help you assemble all you need for the upcoming year (you can thank us later):


  1. Do you have a cool school bag to put your stationery and books in?
  2. Do you have all the essential stationery? Pencil, pen, rubber, ruler, glue stick, highlighters and colouring pencils? Do you have a small homemade catapult for launching rubbers at your friends while the teacher’s back is turned? No? Just me? Ok.
    Munchachos Snacks Children: World Curiosity Back to school
  3. Are you excited to make new friends and catch up with your old friends? Are you curious to hear about their summer vacation?
  4. Did you have a funderful summer holiday? Are you ready for the year ahead, with all the new adventures in store?
  5. Do you have a favourite game you can play with your friends outdoors or indoors? My personal favourite was an outdoor game called Pac-Man, which was a variation of the original arcade game. It’s like Tag but you can only run along the painted lines of the playground (yes, I know I’m old).

  6. Do you have a book that you can read during school or at break?
  7. Have you mastered the art of making paper aeroplanes? They can be very useful for sending messages across the playground, and the right designs can fly very far. The favourite design at Munchachos HQ is the basic dart. We call our paper planes ‘Munchachos Airways.’

  8. And finally, but most importantly, do you have your latest Munchables? Our snacks fit easily in a bag or lunchbox, making them the perfect breaktime treat to eat and share with your friends!



At Munchachos, our core ethos is making sure kids are healthy and happy, not only in body but in mind. Part of being healthy in mind is being comfortable in a new environment. This is why we believe being prepared for school and seeing it as a new adventure is so important. There is so much fun to be had! Now make sure you only get the good stuff into your body (none of that bad stuff). So grab your specially designed delicious Munchables to fuel your body and mind!

“Friendship is the only cement that will ever hold the world together” – Woodrow Wilson

Munchachos Snacks Children: World Curiosity Friendship UN Curiosity

What is International Friendship Day?

International Day of Friendship is observed on July 30th and is celebrated on the first Sunday of August.  The United Nations created the International Day of Friendship to promote the importance of friendship. 

Fun Fact #1: Winnie the Pooh is the Ambassador of Friendship at the UN!


Why Are Friendships Important?

We have listed 5 reasons why we think that friendships are really important:

Live Longer: It has been proven that the stronger your friendships, the healthier and happier you will be! 

Support: Everybody needs a hug sometimes. Your closest friends are there for you in good times and bad to give you the support and love you need.

Learn Loads: You learn loads from your friends by listening to them, playing with them and going on adventures with them. 

Make a Difference: Your friends are the first people to join your team. Together, you can do amazing things such as: collect clothes or raise money for a local charity, play in a sports tournament, complete a science experiment. 

Tell you Truth: Only your closest friends will tell you the real truth. They know you the best and are not afraid of what you think! 


Thomas Aquinas once said said that true friendship is the most prized thing on earth. Do you agree with these reasons? Tell us here!


What Can You Do This Summer?

1. Go Say Hi to Your Neighbour

Whether you are at home or on vacation, the best place to start is with your neighbour. Go say hi and get to know them. 

2. Go Play in the Park 

… or swim in the local pool (wow, it’s so hot!) Wherever you chose to go, try go where there are lots of other children (summer camps are a great example). The more involved you are the likely you are to make new friends!

3. Find Someone Different

Finally, try making friends with someone totally different to you. They are likely to be the most interesting friends you will make. 


So grab a box of Munchachos and go make some new friends this summer. Don’t forget to share! 


How Does This Relate to Who We Are and What We Do?

International Friendship Day is about building ties and bridging gaps between communities and helping make the world a better place. At its very core, this is what Munchachos is all about – making children more curious about the world and its people and by doing so, more comfortable in a multicultural world. Read more here!

Summer Time and the Living is Easy

Munchachos Snacks Children: World Curiosity Activities Adventure Park Summer Time

Ah, summer break… the perfect time to do all those wonderful things we don’t normally have time for during our busy daily routines. We like to sleep in, cook some yummy food, read a gripping book and learn to play a musical instrument. 

What is your favourite thing to do during your summer vacation?

At Munchachos HQ, the thing we love to do the most is go on an adventure in our local park!

Adventure in the Park

There is no better time to explore the outdoors than when it’s sunny and warm. So grab your Munchables and let us tell you about our 5 favourite things to do:

  1. Picnic: Food always tastes the best when you get to eat it outside. So grab a blanket, your favourite food and your Munchables, of course and set up camp in the shade and enjoy your lunch!  
  2. Watch Clouds: There are few things we enjoy more than lying down and looking up at the clouds.  We love trying to find exciting shapes and animals in the sky. Have you tried it?
  3. Catch Butterflies: We think butterflies are the most beautiful animals. Fishing net in hand, we love to catch butterflies and look at them from close. Remember not to hurt them and to let them free!
  4. Spot Animals: There are so many different animals wondering around the park. We particularly enjoy spotting the small insects with our magnifying glass. What did you see today?
  5. Ball Games: We love any ball game: football, rugby, netball, rounders, cricket… you name it! What’s your favourite ball game?
