18 Mar Weekly Roundup
Hey folks, it’s Friday and it’s a big one for any child, teacher, or parent in South Florida. It’s Spring Break!!!! Needless to say I am ecstatic! Next week will be full of fun in the sun with my little one so preparing the right meals and snacks are going to be extremely important. This week’s roundup is all about swapping out items full of sugar and chemicals, and sneaking in healthier alternatives. These products will appeal to even the pickiest kids. Enjoy and have a great weekend!
1. Say NO to Soda
Sparkling ICE is a great tasting, lightly carbonated beverage made of sparkling water, natural flavors, fruit juice, vitamins and antioxidants. An excellent soda alternative, this light and refreshing beverage contains zero calories, zero carbs, is sugar free, gluten free and sodium free. It also comes in over 20 different delicious flavors including a line of Teas and Lemonades, so there’s a flavor for every picky kid to enjoy.
2. No More Sugar Cereal
Viki’s Granola is the perfect healthy breakfast for your kid to enjoy at home with yogurt or on-the-go right out of the bag. It’s great tasting, GLUTEN-FREE, and made with 100% ALL NATURAL ingredients (with less than 8 ingredients total per flavor option).
3. For the Occasional Chocolate Indulgence
Depriving kids of sweets when they really want them only results in temper tantrums and tears. Instead, let them indulge in an occasional portion controlled sweet treat, like Bauli Chocolate Mini Croissants – just 50 calories a pop! Even better, they are made in a REAL oven with no preservatives and naturally leavened dough.
4. Replace Pasta Without Kids Noticing Anything
Explore Cuisine Chickpea Fusilli is a nutritious option to replace White Pasta – and kids will never know the difference! With its soft, supple texture and mild taste, kids think they are still eating White Pasta, but actually, this Chickpea Fusilli is made with only four organic, whole food ingredients.
5. Sneak in Veggies
The Omega Juice Cube – CUBE550S is a self-storing compact “masticating-style” juice extractor. Make juice, smoothies, all-natural nut butters, baby food, soy milk, almond milk, pasta and a variety of healthy snacks for your kids and the whole family to enjoy. The auger system forces produce into a tight chamber, grinding and pressing the food to squeeze out the juice from items as fine as wheatgrass and leafy vegetables.
