Just because I avoid sugar and chemically laden candy doesn’t mean my 2 boys are on the same page, FAR from it!
I would never forbid them to eat candy and cakes when they are with friends but at home I try to come up with OK alternatives.
I have to say I was pretty happy with the Organic Raw Chocolate Covered Mulberries I found in my local health food store the other day.
Dried fruit should be eaten with slight caution because of the high sugar content but Mulberries contains quite large amounts of proteins so they are a good choice.
They are also a good source of Vitamin C, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium and Vitamin K, and Raw Cacao comes with lovely antioxidants, vitamins and minerals.
But did they taste any good?
I was sold, so was my 9-year-old, by the time we picked up his little brother, the bag was empty so we don’t know if it was a thumbs up from him as well..
