We are excited to announce our new packaging will start to appear on shelf from August 2018. This transition to new packaging will occur over a number of months. During this time there will be a mix of current and new packaging on shelf.

There are no major changes to these products, in some instances there is a small name change or slight recipe improvement, see below for the full details.

Products purchased via the website will be delivered to customers in our old packaging until the end of October. From November, products ordered from the website will be delivered in the new packaging.

What are the Best Car Snacks for Kids?

best-car-snacks-kids

Car trips are tough at the best of times! However, when you are trying to keep young children entertained, as well as juggling traffic, it goes to a whole new level of difficulty.

So, here are some of the best car snacks guaranteed to satisfy, make minimal mess and offer some positive nutritional properties for your kids.

Cut-up sandwiches

We often find that during car trips we turn to biscuits and other processed snacks to feed both ourselves and our kids. However, it is a lot better to feed your kids a small piece of sandwich topped with a nut-based, avocado or cheese spread. Not only are small pieces of sandwich easy to eat, but they are less likely to leave the mess that biscuits and crackers create.

Breadsticks

Forget refined rice and other processed grains, a simple breadstick has the nutrition and novelty factor that kids always love! Containing little to no additives — making them a healthy and nutritious snack — it is handy to keep a packet in the car at all times.

For younger children, rusks are another great option for in-between meals as they take quite a while to eat and don’t contain excess sugars. See Bellamy’s Organic Rusks.

Fruit pieces

Whether you prefer fresh fruit or snap-dried, both are easy to eat and minimal mess foods that kids will love. Specifically, pieces of frozen banana, cut-up apple and pear, or berries, are all good choices nutritionally. See Bellamy’s Organic Apple Snacks.

Protein balls

Homemade snacks, like protein balls, are not only nutritious and delicious but are also great for car trips. You can choose whether you want to mix nut spread, dates, dried fruit, coconut, oats or even a little protein powder to create a nutritious snack ball. See some of my protein ball recipes below:

Cup-up vegetables

While we often think about fruit for snacks, far less often do we consider some cut-up vegetables as a good option. Packed full of nutrition and low in calories, cut-up veggies such as capsicum, cucumbers, carrot and celery can all be tasty, nutritious car snacks! And, you can team them with yoghurt or hummus as a dipping sauce with a healthy kick.

Important Notice to Parents and Guardians

  • The World Health Organisation recommends that breastfeeding is best for your baby.
  • Having a balanced diet when breastfeeding is also important. Infant Formulas should only be used after you’ve sought advice from a doctor or health practitioner.
  • A decision not to breastfeed can be difficult to reverse and introducing partial bottle feeding may reduce the supply of breast milk. It is also wise to consider the cost of infant formula.
  • If you use infant formula, all preparation and feeding instructions must be followed as per the manufacturer’s instructions. This is important for your baby’s health.
