That!

And off they went, today our beautiful twins started their very last term of kindy. After two weeks of school holidays they were very keen to go back to kindy and although I am looking forward to getting on top of the household chores I am not so excited about the prospect of all the lunches I will have to make. While I am yet to discover a quick way to prep the sandwiches (share your tips if you have any!) I can definitely help you with a speedy, tasty and healthy snack fix:

That! Dairy SnackYou may have already spotted That! Dairy Snack on the dessert shelf of your local Coles or Woolworths, but dismissed it as yet another sweet, sugar loaded treat you better avoid. What you may not know is that compared to many other dairy snacks (like frozen yoghurt, chilled kids’ yoghurt and custard) That! stands out from the crowd as a Healthy Kids Registered Green Product with fewer calories, less sugar and less fat.

Of course we all know variety is the spice of life so the clever people at That! have come up with a super delicious new range that is sure to get kids of all ages excited, meet That! Milkshake:

That! Milkshake Providing kids with all the benefits of real Aussie milk and much needed calcium to support those growing bodies That! Milkshake is a simple way to mix up a boring lunch box and give the kids a fresh burst of energy. As each pouch contains as few calories as an apple it is a perfect addition to a healthy kids’ diet. If you want to try these tasty shakes for yourself keep an eye out next time you visit your local Woolworths, you can find them in the chiller.

Now of course you don’t just have to take my word for it, for all your kids’ diet and nutrition questions you can count on Michelle, That!’s very own dietitian to help you out. Michelle shares a bunch of very valuable and practical tips on the That! website and she also regularly drops by on the That! Facebook page so if this is a topic you care about make sure you give them the thumbs up.

That! Milkshake ChocolateBesides the nutritional value and yummy taste there is another great reason That! Milkshake and That! Dairy Snack make a fantastic kids’ school snack: the convenient re-sealable pouches are easy to use (even with one hand), they are virtually mess free and ideal for on-the-go, plus at 120g they are the perfect size for hungry little tummies. Yay for no more sticky containers and missing spoons.

That! Milkshake and That! Dairy Snack ($1.69) are currently available in three popular flavours: Banana, Strawberry and Chocolate.

To celebrate the launch of the new That! Milkshake range five lucky people will win a 1-month supply of That! Milkshake, surely that should score mum some brownie points? Entering is super easy, for your chance to win enter the competition here.

Allergy Riders

With three of our little ones celebrating their birthday this month I am in for some busy weeks. Shopping for and wrapping gifts, organising lolly bags and decorations and of course plenty of cooking and baking. These days there are more and more children who have special dietary requirements and serving the wrong food to the wrong party guest can have serious consequences. Make sure all little visitors, allergies or not, can join the party with Allergy Riders.

Allergy Riders Baking Cups ($6.95, 50pcs)

Allergy Riders Baking Cups ($6.95, 50pcs)

Australian mum Amy experienced first hand how tricky parties can be when you suffer from food allergies like her son Ned. Always having to check labels, ask the host questions about the food or even bring your own snacks just to be sure, surely that not what a fun party should be like! Amy decided to take matters into her own hands and created Allergy Riders, taking the hassle out of allergies.

Allergy Riders Baking CupsThe concept is very easy: By using Allergy Riders baking cups and food flags that are easily recognisable by colour and text allergy sufferers can quickly identify which foods are safe for them to eat. Less time wasted on questioning cooks and labels, just grab the ‘colour’ that fits your diet and dig in! The Baking Cups are perfect for delicious muffins and cupcakes while the Food Flags can mark most other snacks, easy as pie.

Allergy Rider Food FlagsThe Allergy Riders range covers four of the most common allergies (Dairy, Nut, Gluten and Egg) as well as a Vegan diet. The bright colours are appealing to little eyes whilst not being childish so they can be used by grownups too. If your child can’t read you can just tell them which colour to look for, very handy. Each pack of 50 Baking Cups is priced at just $6.95 and 25 Food Flags cost only $5.95 plus shipping is capped at $5 Australia wide.

If living and eating healthier is one of your New Year resolutions (it is for many!) you are probably feeling very excited and motivated right now, just a few more days until the start of a new, healthier you. The first days, weeks or months might be relatively easy but for most people it gets harder after a while, get yourself in a good habit from the beginning by learning all about which foods are good for you so you always have healthy options to choose from. You can find out all about these superfoods in the awesome new book Supercharged Food by Lee Holmes.

You might know Australian author Lee Holmes from her regular column in the WellBeing magazine or her articles on Miranda Kerr’s Kora Organics blog. Maybe you have already discovered her own website www.superchargedfood.com, the perfect place for people to learn all about healthy foods (and which ones to avoid), explore recipes and to find all the tools you need to look after yourself the best possible way. In her new book Supercharged Food Lee shares more than 90 delicious recipes that are healthy, nutritious, elegant, easy to make, boost your immunity and will provide you with refreshed energy.

If you could use some food guidance and are ready for a positive change in your diet this book might just become your food bible. With 192 pages of recipes, accompanied by beautiful full colour photographs and background information there is sure to be a mouthwatering meal to everyone’s taste, even changing just a few of your ordinary meals or snacks for a healthy supercharged alternative will do you well!

Supercharged Food is a real eye opener for anyone who thinks that eating healthy or dealing with allergies rules out all yummy food. These days many children (and adults) suffer from food allergies and it can be hard to adjust to the new diet and to come up with meals that appeal to everyone. All the recipes in Supercharged Food are gluten, wheat, dairy, yeast and sugar-free so everyone can join in!

What I love about this book is that it contains a bit of everything, it covers your whole day from breakfast, lunch and dinner to desserts, drinks, snacks and much more. I was surprised by how achievable the recipes were with ingredients the whole family can enjoy (not just fancy grownup food). I have added many of the dishes to our family menu but some absolute toppers are spinach toast and aromatic herb & garlic crackers.
