I was recently approached by a lovely lady from the very well-known brand Organix, who asked if Luke would like to try some of their snacks. Now I’ll be honest with you, I had heard of Organix. Who hasn’t?? They are a HUGE brand and leaders in healthier snacks. Luke had many of their finger food snacks as a baby and toddler and absolutely loved them (especially their apple rice cakes), but I stopped buying them when he started school. I had no idea that they did snacks for older children though!
I was sent two boxes of Organix Punk’d Oaty Bars. These are aimed at primary school aged children from 5-11 years old. They are available in 2 delicious flavours: Strawberry and Vanilla Smash, and Cocoa and Orange Crash. There are 6 bars in a pack, each individually wrapped, making them perfect for school lunchboxes. Most schools now won’t let children take unhealthy things in their lunchbox, so these are perfect! The packaging is cool and funky, and I personally love the name. If you are “punked” you have had a trick played on you. The trick with these bars is your child won’t realise they are eating something that is actually good for them. Bonus!
The long school Summer holiday is here and if your child is anything like mine, they’ll be constantly looking for snacks. It never ceases to amaze me how much Luke can eat during weekends and holidays. He must be starving on school days having to wait 3 hours between food!!! I always make sure the fruit bowl is full and there are yoghurts in the fridge, but sometimes he just wants something unhealthy and sweet. Punk’d Bars satisfy those sweet cravings, even though they are healthy. And because they are made mainly from oats and sultanas they are filling too so keep him going until mealtimes! I am keeping a permanent supply of these bars in the cupboard! They are a good source of fibre and protein, and are suitable for vegetarians. All of the ingredients are organic, and the sweetness comes from naturally occurring sugars from the fruit. Organix have a No Junk Promise, and there is nothing artificial in any of their bars. These bars would also be ideal for days out, as they are so conveniently packed to have in your bag or coat pocket.
Organix products are available in many supermarkets so are very easy to get your hands on. If you want to find out more about their range of products for each age group, click HERE to go to the Organix website.
Organix sent me some delicious healthy recipes to try out and some great tips on healthy snacking, so look out for those posts over the next few weeks!
