Organix Goodies | Healthy Organic Treats For Kids ♥
What first drew me to Organix was their bright and colourful packaging - I'm a sucker for anything that looks good because it just speaks quality to me and that's the kind of stuff I want my children to be eating, quality - no junk, no unnecessary things, just all the good stuff. When I looked closer, I was even more impressed that the snacks Organix were offering were all organic and all looked like proper treats, but much healthier of course and it's much easier to get a young child to eat something that looks like a yummy treat, as well as it being healthy.
This was ideal for us as Tyler has a sweet tooth and is always looking for a treat, so having a healthy option to give him that still looks like something enticing is a winner for us. I actually think the Organix range is quite wholesome for kids. The snacks available all include healthy ingredients and they taste delicious too - I have been know to do a taste test or two, just to make sure they'll be fine for the kids of course...
We spend a lot of time outdoors as a family and I always have to pack a bag of snacks for the boys to bring along on our adventures. I always pack some snacks from the Organix range as the foods available aren't too messy, they won't destroy the car or the boys clothes and they can eat them themselves easily without me having to help them.
Tyler's favourite snack from the Organix range is the gingerbread men. He sees them as being a real treat and Beau has now begun snacking on them too. The carrot cake bars are also a big favourite here too.
Sweet Cinnamon Puffcorn - Tyler is a big fan of popcorn and he loves these. I tried some myself and the flavour was nice with the cinnamon. Beau is a fan of cinnamon flavour anything and these are aimed at 12+ months, but I gave him some as he's well able to manage all types of foods - especially now he has six teeth, and due to the texture of the Puffcorn, it melts in the mouth and is easier for younger children to eat. Beau couldn't get enough of these.
Carrot Stix - Tyler absolutely loves these and I think he's always happy to eat them because he thinks he's getting a bag of crisps! Sorry buddy, they're much healthier than that! These are also aimed at 12+ months but Beau is able to handle these too. The texture means they also melt in the mouth and their perfect for him to chomp on when he's having a bad teething pain day. My only bug bear with these is that the orange residue off them gets all over his clothes and hands - a nightmare for mothers like me who can't handle stains on the kids clothes.
Raisins Mini Boxes - These are so handy for days out and for packing in Tyler's lunch box for school because he can open them himself. He's loved raisins from a young age and he's always happy to have a box. One of these boxes counts as one of a child's five a day too!
We'll continue to purchase Organix snacks for the boys. We always find great offers on the range in Boots (and yay for picking up card points) and Tesco and buy in bulk. Organix may be on the pricier end of the kids snack spectrum, but I'm always willing to pay that little bit more to make sure my boys are eating healthy snacks that don't contain anything they don't need too - plus, both boys enjoy the snacks the Organix range offers and it's always great to find something both of them like.
