I knew the school holidays would be a challenge. How to stop R & R from arguing for 90% of the day? How to get any work done with them both off school? And what to do on the inevitable rainy days that doesn't include the words "soft" and "play"? But what I hadn't expected was how much they'd eat.
Honestly, they are eating me out of house and home. I can't keep up with the constant demands for snacks, meals and puddings. R, who won't eat yoghurt or fruit, seems to expect me to make a full dessert for him twice a day! I think he's been spoilt by the cake and custard style puddings he gets at school every day.
So when Heavenly Tasty Organics got in touch to ask if we'd like to try out their new kids snacks I leapt at the chance. I was particularly impressed with the crispy veggie waffles - it's so great to see a kids food company putting vegetables at the heart of what they do. This is a subject that is dear to my heart of course and as you'll know if you've been here before, I take every opportunity to add an extra portion of veg into the food I feed my kids.
The crispy veggie waffles come in two flavours - sweet beet and shallot and carrot and cumin and the breadsticks come in original and rosemary. So what did the kids think?
Well, they absolutely loved the breadsticks. And what's so great about them is that they don't contain any added sugar or salt. I recently had a shock when I looked at the back of the packet of supermarket breadsticks and saw how much salt is in them so to know that these don't contain any is really reassuring.
The crispy veggie waffles didn't go down quite so well unfortunately. R & R weren't keen on these. Baby S however, can always be relied upon to like everything that they don't like and he enjoyed them. I sampled them both myself and I thought they were far more delicious than any of the other kids snacks I've tried! I also tried them on one of R's friends and he loved them too. So I would definitely recommend trying them.
