N is a snacker. He obviously takes after me because I graze throughout the day too, something that his dad definitely doesn’t do. But N would eat from breakfast through to tea given half the chance. So I do like to have a selection of snacks available just in case. When we’re out and about, I need snacks that are easy to carry, don’t need lots of little pots, but can just fit easily in whatever bag I have with me (ideally a small bag!). Raisins are a convenient choice for us, and because N drinks water most of the time (at least when out and about), I’m not too worried about his teeth and eating too many sweet snacks.
We were offered the chance to try some of the Clearly Scrumptious range for adults and children. All the products are:
- 100% natural
- Have no added sugar
- No colours or preservatives
- Gluten free
- 1 of your 5 a day.
I’m always keen on no added sugar, and although I don’t think N really seems to be affected by old style sweets that some children get hyper after, I still prefer natural products if he’s snacking in between meals.
Clearly Scrumptious are the standard range of healthy treats. All are in little white bags, and aren’t just the same old dried fruits. The range includes cranberries, strawberries, apple slices and golden berries (I think they’re physalis). As soon as I opened the box, N was straight in there. He didn’t care that they were meant to be for me! My favourite was the apple slices – and I’m not usually a fan of non-potato crisp type of foods.
Scrummies are the new children’s range. They’re raisins and dried cranberries naturally flavoured with other fruit flavours. As an adult I always think changing the flavour of raisins and other fruit is a bit odd, but that doesn’t seem to bother N. He loves to have individual packs, that are a good size for his hands, and have a decent amount of food in. I’d say they’re just the right size for a snack for him.
They’re easy to open, but not so easy that children can easily get into them, rip the pack and drop the food all over the floor before eating it against your wishes. Just my child then?! Although he solves the not being able to get into snack packs, by getting out his scissors and cutting them open. I despair sometimes!
Still, the snacks have gone down well, N’s been excited by having new choices, and with each pack he’s been interested to find out what the fruit was.
