If you're responsible for feeding kids, you'll know that snacks are pretty much life! Not only do they bridge the gap between main meals, they also provide us with another opportunity to nourish their rapidly growing little bodies.
Unfortunately, most of the ultra-processed snacks marketed to our kids are made with refined-grains, high amounts of sugar, salt and flavours - to try and make them hyperpalatable and taste "real". They send their blood sugar levels sky rocketing, only to come crashing back down, leaving them hungrier and moodier than before.
Hi, I'm Lucy Stewart, a qualified Nutritionist specialising in babies and children's health. I created Well Fed Kitchen, a range of nourishing and convenient kids snacks, designed to fill tummies, satiate hunger, provide a steady release of energy and a few extra essential growing nutrients – made with only real and whole-food and plant-based ingredients
What began as a ready-made snacks service delivered on the Sunshine Coast has branched in to range of ‘make at home’ bake mixes, available Australia-wide.
They’re made without nuts to keep them lunchbox friendly, dairy, soy and wheat – as we know these can be difficult to digest and many kids don't tolerate them. And definitely no additives or 'natural flavours'.
These are the snacks I always make for my kids (ok, and me too). Simply store them in the freezer, pop them in lunchbox and they’ll defrost to fresh from frozen in time for morning tea.
Teaching kids to cook is one of the greatest gifts we can give them, so why not invite them in to the kitchen to help you make these.
Whilst we take the utmost care to ensure there is no cross contamination, our ingredients are processed in facilities that also handle gluten, sesame, soy and tree nuts.
If you have any questions, feedback or suggestions for what you'd like to see next in our range, we'd love to hear from you.
