What sort of snacks are you carrying around in your mistreated handbag for when the kids go mental?
I used to have a lot of seeds and nuts and oat crackers at the bottom of my battered bag, and when they were younger Ellas Kitchen’s squeezy fruit mixes was a staple.
Now it looks like my 8 year old has developed a nut and seed allergy, (he had his blood taken for analysis at the hospital yesterday) so seeds and nuts are a nono until we find out.
Thankfully I’ve found a new healthy snack. Slow dried organic fruits, vegetables and berries from a Latvian company called Straumeni.
What I like about this product, apart from it being organic, is that it’s been dried at 38 degrees so a lot of the vitamins, minerals and other goodness have been preserved.
We tried apples with raspberries, rhubarb, quince, beetroot and carrots. The kids loved the apples and the quince most, I thought rhubarb and carrots were the best.
“Why don’t you just cut up some carrot sticks to carry around” said the Mr, hmmm, in that sentence he reviled just how much looking after the kids he does…
By not cutting up carrots every morning I A. saves about 15 minutes a day. B I’m not poisoning the kids with old rotten carrots.
These bags can stay in my long-suffering bag for weeks on end and I don’t have to rely on unhealthy treats at Starbucks or worse when hunger strikes.
