With the upcoming season of colour, fun and many yummy foods I’m excited that I’ve stumbled on Hopperfood’s 100% natural food colour and 100s & 1000s sprinkles. This is not a sponsored post of any kind, it’s a personal experience review.
I have long disliked and felt uneasy about what food colouring does to our bodies let alone what it does to a child’s behaviour. From experience I’ve seen a child break out in severe eczema after consuming foods containing bright, fun colours and I’ve seen children turn from sweet, chatty cherubs to screeching, agitated demons within 30 minutes of consuming the same.
I’m all for balance and I don’t like the kids missing out on yummy, fun foods so with officially diagnosed ADHD children in my home I’m always looking for healthy answers without creating a sad pit of absence in their childhoods. Often I put my own day on the line and allow foods that I know will be followed by chaos and havoc and I create avenues to channel the reaction either in running or swimming or water fights, anything that involves a lot of laughter and allows for unusually high energy levels.
For those who are sceptical, yes I know sugar is also a contributor. Trust me sugar is not as reactive and sugar alternatives are also readily available.
It’s strange that I’ve asked many, many stores if they stock or know of any food colour alternatives and each time I’ve been told no. Well, ask no more because yesterday I stumbled across new food colours in Sisters IGA located in JOONDALUP. I was very much excited and so here I am sharing this with you. Even better is that the company Hoppers also makes sprinkles using the same 100% natural fruit and veg concentrates.
I’m all the more excited that I can get to colouring my kid’s world during this yummy, fun season of Christmas.
So here is the link to the page that will tell you where you can buy these better, healthier alternative food colours and sprinkles.
It’s well-known that a woman’s handbag has no bottom. I’m not talking about those delicate evening bags, although I’ve seen an amazing amount of contents squashed into those at times too.
When life gets particularly busy for any mum, particularly with more than the regular quota of kids, a mum’s handbag becomes many things. A first aid kit, lunch box, tool box, Read the rest of this entry »
