As a teacher I’m a firm believer that what you put into kids has a direct correlation with what you get out of them! Too often I’ve seen kids unable to sit still, concentrate and do their work, whilst not always the case diet can and does have a big influence on performance.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m by no means encouraging childhoods without cakes, cookies or special treats. Moderation, thought I do think is key. In combination with the quest for moderation in a diet, I’m also a firm believer in limiting food additives and overly processed products. In my opinion we just don’t have enough information on the effects of food additives especially in the heap of processed foods in the average person’s diet. With so many amazing natural ingredients, why not avoid processed foods and additives in lieu of fresh ingredient.
This little recipe is a great example of a nutrition rich special treat sure to make everyone’s morning, lunch or evening.
