Hi guys, well im not sure if you've seen in previous posts, but my kids react something shocking to additives and preservatives, so while i might come across as being catty here, i dont mean to, its jsut that i would prefer my children to eat lollies and chips with no preservatives, than dried fruit with preservatives, if that makes any sense.
Over all of course i prefer them to have fresh fruit as a snack.
The lollies and chips that dont cause them to react are the brands natrual confectionary company (lollies) and Kettle ( chips).
While they are still junk food and i do limit them as i would normal lollies and chips, i can allow them to have these without having to worry about the usual performances that comes across when children (some) eat lollies chips etc.
We used to go to occasions (kids bday parties etc) and all hell would break loose over the fights of trying to prevent the kids eating lollies and chips, and then all hell would break loose after others decided to give them to them, now we take our own and no probs, the kids know what they can and cant eat, and prefer to eat "happy foods" as they are realising how much trouble it is for them and me if they eat "angry foods".
Same as witha lot of other so called healthy foods, i have to make my own museli bars etc, seeing as the kids react to most store rbought tings.
It has been a challange too seeing as i was never much of a cook in the first place tongue
