Good snacks anytime!
As a mother, I know that I have so much responsibility for my children's health. Whenever I go out, I couldn't really find healthy snacks for my children. Everywhere is full with sugar. I started to feel so quilty to buy chips, cookies, chocolates and candies for them. Asking myself everytime, why would I have to buy bad snacks for my beloved sons? I then started to look for healthy snacks for them and actually carry with me when going out. This is the best thing a mother could do for her children. Sometimes they don't want to eat fruits. Then I would give them freezed dried fruits. They are actually fruits but crispy and sweet like candy. Vacuumfried fruits and vegetables are also good alternative to potatochips. I believe it's healthier, more fiber and less fat. What about you guys? Have you ever thought about snacks that you give to your children?
Eating fresh vegetables and fruits is the best, but sometimes my children want to eat something more crispy and crunchy like chips. Then I would choose to give them vacuumfried veg instead of traditional deepfried potatochips. My son loves greenday pumpachips so much. You can get those from www.bodystore.se For myself, I like broccolichips dipped with cream fraiche. Hope you all can try them out.
xLillaMy: You' re right, frying is not that healthy but it's healthier with vacuumfried. Sometimes we do want to eat something crispy:) so vacuumfried is not so bad to try. Freezed dried is one of the method for drying so it won't melt. I think freezed dried fruits are good snacks for kids. I got them from www.mumsigt-nyttigt.se if you get a chance, let your kids try them. It's a good alternative for candies.
I think the most of us thinks of what we're giving to our children. But as you says, is not easy to find healthy snacks when you're out!
How do you keep your freezed dried fruits cold when your out? Doesn't it "melt"?
I don't know what Vacuumfried fruits is, but the word "Vacuumfried" doesn't sounds like it's healthy?
My daughter loves bananas, apples, pears and oranges, so I don't have that problem :) It's either a fruit or nothing. And I hope my son will too!
