The Giving Tree sent me and Little Miss T, a selection of fruit and vegetable crisps to try, and we were so excited to try something new. Little Miss T has always been a fussy eater and getting her to eat vegetables was a daily battle, but she started school last year and now seems to enjoy her veggies, especially broccoli. So when the hamper arrived, she was so keen to try them out.
Tilly loved the fruit ones and most of the vegetable ones but she really wasn't keen on the broccoli crisps! The crisps are so handy and you can pop some in a pot for your child's play time break at school or add some fruit to the top of a home made cake like we did. no more soggy fruit on top of cakes.
These crisps are a much healthier snack than a normal bag of crisps and instead of sweets, you can offer them to your kids as a healthier alternative. You can also encourage your kids to eat the freeze dried vegetables by telling them that astronauts eat freeze dried foods and this is freeze dried food, so really they will be like an astronaut if they eat the vegetables.
These snacks are perfect for TV snacking, How often do we sit in front of the TV and snack on junk? well with these you can still keep snacking on something tasty and fun, whilst watching your favourite programmes. Perfect and healthy for an after school snack for the kids too.
You can buy The Giving Tree snacks from Fortnum and Mason, Selfridges, Plant Organic and more places, there is a list of stockists here. Why not give them a try?
