Right or wrong my kids are snackers! It used to upset me terribly but I have learnt to deal with it a little, they always have a good breakfast and one hot meal a day but I do not worry if that is it.
One thing I do have quite a strong opinion on though is that the majority of snacks are healthy ones. Addison loves fruit, she will eat easily 5 pieces a day so I rarely have to worry, Deacon is a little harder and would love a biscuit in hand all day but he loves squeezy fruit pouches and would live on his soya yoghurt.
Addison has stopped eating many yoghurt, I think they are just to boring for her to sit and eat, she likes to be on the go and a lot of the time we are with school/work runs and many hospital trips. A yoghurt is not really ideal in these situations.
Fast forward 10 months and we still buy Suckies every few weeks when we head to Sainsburys, we would have them more if some of the other supermarkets sold them, but thankfully they have a great use by dates on them so it isn’t usually a problem, they are ideal for her to snack on in the car on school runs as I am a little OCD about mess in the car or out and about.
So we were excited when The Collective sent us their new Blueberry flavour to test out…
This delicious new innovation from The Collective is the only blueberry children’s yoghurt available in the UK and ten percent of each pouch (10g) comprises of the vibrant and antioxidant-rich fruit.
Blueberries are one of nature’s wonders and, despite their size, they are filled with a multitude of health benefits. These little berries are particularly good for little ones and now it’s easier than ever to get the kids to eat them.
Well I have to agree, Addy used to love Blueberries but in the last year does not eat them anymore, but thanks to her loving the Blueberry Suckies she has decided to try them again – woohoo.
Instead of me raving on let Addison tell you what she thought in this video…
So do head out and give them a go, I think they are a great snack for kids, Suckies only contains sugars from fruit, no pips, bits, colours, artificial flavourings, preservatives, or GM ingredients allowed! So no nasties!
They can be found in Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Booths, Nisa and Tesco (RRP 79p per pouch).
