Nakd: Healthy Snacks for Little T

Before little T arrived in our lives, my husband used to have a “secret” stash of chocolates in his bedside table drawer.  I don’t really know why he referred to it as his secret stash when I of course knew of its existence.  But ever since little T was born,  that is a thing of the past now.  Like all ehem responsible parents,  we try not to have a whole load of it in our house, or if we do, we make sure that it is hidden, away from the prying eyes of a three-year-old.

Actually it’s mainly for our sanity too, no sane parent would want to be plagued with the incessant maddening whinge of I want chocolate NOW!  So to avoid any meltdowns, keep those chocolates/sweets hidden.

When little T was younger, I never really had any problems with her diet.  She ate everything I gave to her.  My sister was really impressed when I told her that she ate broccoli, carrots  and other vegetable nary a complaint.  Sadly, those days are gone (along with the hidden stash of chocolates).  As soon as she sees something that resembles a vegetable she’ll wrinkle her little nose and say I don’t want that!  My only saving grace is, she still loves her fruit and can consume a bowl full of grapes, strawberries, apple or pear slices in one sitting.

We have the following rule in our house: No snacks or sweets unless you’ve eaten your main meals: breakfast, lunch and dinner.  I’m proud to say that yes, we do adhere to them, however, I always feel guilty and think that I have to be a more responsible parent and give her healthy snacks instead of chocolates and her beloved Lola (party rings) biscuits.  The good news is, I think I’ve found the answer.  While searching for health food online, I  came across Nakd Health foods – a British company that makes healthy but delicious snacks, which we were excited to try.

When this box of goodness arrived on our doorstep, little T was so excited.  The look on her face is priceless!  I bet if she had her way, she’d gobble everything up in one sitting!

I let her have two and then hid the box of goodness away from her sight.

It’s a good alternative to chocolates, crisps and other lovely but unhealthy snacks, best left for the grown-ups to consume when the little ones have gone off to bed.  So now when she asks for chocolates, I’ll gladly give her a protein crunch bar.  Instead of crisps, I’ll make her choose among the different flavoured raisins (cola, lime or cherry raisins) or flapjacks just to name a few.  We’ve shared them with little F and his parents and they absolutely liked it too, especially F’s dad who happens to be a vegetarian.   So if you’re looking for a healthier alternative to chocolates and crisps, do try them out, they’ve got a variety of delicious and healthy snacks to choose from.

Do you know any other healthy alternative snacks for young children?  Do share.

  1. The look on her face staring into the box of goodies is just priceless! I love that you’ve found some healthy snacks for little T! I love finding new items like that and sharing them with my friends!

    • I know! She’s like her dad, she’ll eat anything that’s covered in chocolate. Thankfully, I’m not that fond of sweets.

  2. It’s great to find things that seem like sweets, but aren’t. It’s quite difficult over here in the US, but I’m slowly finding a few good alternatives 🙂 #PoCoLo

    • Since we live in a small village in North Cornwall, far from big shops, I order most stuff online actually – the variety of good alternatives online out there is amazing – really good stuff 🙂
