Don't underestimate the power of snacks!
When it comes to kids' mood, energy, focus and success at school, one of the most influential factors is diet. And a hugely important part of what kids and teenagers eat and drink every day happens between meals - mid-morning, after school, when they finish a sports game, at the beach. A smart snack will boost them with nutrients and slow-release energy, whereas a processed snack or soft drink can cause a spike in their blood sugar, throwing out their mood and concentration.
Poor snack choices can also have longer-term effects on their physical and mental wellbeing. But family life is busy.
That's why passionate foodie Flip Shelton and renowned adolescent and child psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg have teamed up to create this collection of simple, speedy recipes to help you make the most of snacks every day without devoting hours to the process. From two-ingredient cashew balls and sweet potato chocolate brownies to egg jaffles and a whole rainbow of smoothies, whip up these recipes for (or with) your kids and you'll be packing them full of good stuff they'll actually want to eat.
Show them how to snack smart and you can supercharge their happiness and health for life.
