Who doesn't enjoy an essential snack or two to keep them going each day?
While it's vitally important for kids to eat proper foods, little kids do require an extra nutritional boost between meals to assist their rapidly growing bodies. Running, playing, wriggling and learning are all a part of an average child's day, and these normal activities require a constant stream of calories to fuel them.
Snacking on the right foods is actually good for children!
Making healthy choices as a parent, about just where this extra fuel is sourced, is imperative. After all, our kids look to us for direction on their pathways in life, for life. Make sure your children are snacking on optimum-quality foods, for a healthy start at every opportunity.
We featured Organix foods here just recently. This brand of premium quality foods for babies and young kids can support the nutritional needs of your child whether they're at home or on the go.
Organix Goodies are an ideal choice for the purpose of filling little tummies in-between meals. Eating little and often is the right approach to feeding your young child. Organix delivers a range that are presented in well-portioned sizes, that can assist you to provide new tastes and textures while supporting kids' nutritional and energy demands easily and conveniently.
We all know that just watching a child play is tiring when you're an adult!
We tried out Organix Goodies on our youngest at the park recently. Did our girl like the range? Absolutely! (Incidentally, so did I!)

that are baked not fried. Each flavour in the range is delicately flavoured with vegetables, cheese and herbs.
Every parent knows that kids appreciate foods in packets! The Organix Goodies savoury snack range are a fantastic and convenient addition to your child's diet. Kids will never guess that these Carrot Stix, Cheese and Herb Puffs and Saucy Tomato Noughts and Crosses are actually good for them! Like all Organix foods, they're backed by the Organix No Junk Promise: always organic, nothing unnecessary, setting standards.
A little healthy nibble here and there during a morning out, kept this one very content during our park visit.
The texture of these Organix Goodies corn-based treats is light and crunchy and the flavours are well-received by youngsters. Even our older kids enjoyed these. (I wouldn't hesitate suggesting the puffs as an ideal addition to pop into lunchboxes for school-aged kids as well.) Carrot Stix and Tomato Noughts and Crosses are available at Coles RRP $2 each. All including the Cheese and Herb Puffs can be found at Woolworths too.
How do you know if your child need a snack? If you're unsure about this, then keep an eye out for some easy to spot indicators, such as a sudden shift in mood, a pending tantrum, signs of fatigue and even clinginess. These symptoms can all be signals that a nibble is required between mealtimes. These same indicators are relevant even in older kids and teens!
A super-hit in our household were these Organix Goodies Mini Oaty Bites. These are small bite-sized portions filled with the goodness of natural oats and raisins, and flavoured in raspberry and apple and apple and orange varieties.
|Available at Coles RRP $5.99 a pack.|
Mini Oaty Bites have proven themselves to be an ideal snack for the whole family. (Our packet disappeared very quickly!) Try popping a few individually wrapped Bites into lunchboxes, or within your baby bag or handbag for healthy snacking options when you're next out with your children. Organix Goodies provide healthy, tasty and convenient options for little people with hunger pangs, in addition to a regular meals as part of a well-balanced diet.
