Healthy Treat Time with #SilverFernBrands

As an active mom, I always try to provide healthy food options for my family. This would work well in a world where your children will eat everything you put in front of them ... but that is not always the case in my world!  

Meet my picky eater...

My fabulous 7-year-old has a very short list of foods she will even attempt to eat and a very long list of rejects. My challenge over the last 7 years has been to pack the most nutrients into the foods she will eat … including her “treats.”  I mean, really, would anyone put treats on their short list? Keeping cookies or treats in the house is not an option for me since I have the willpower of a gnat, so I was so excited to be chosen to try out Silver Fern Brand’s line of Paka Baking Mixes.

Silver Fern Brands launched in April at Fit Con and its products fit the bill for my sweet-loving picky eater! They’re filled with nutrients and taste great, which make them a delicious, healthy snack, even for ladies like me who are trying to keep things low carb!
The Paka baking mixes are all natural and high in fiber and protein. They are lower in calories than similar baking mixes and are sweetened with Kakato sweetener. All this goodness makes them just what I need to cure that sweet craving and a treat that I feel good about giving my girls!
The ladies and I decided to get baking together (I love baking and cooking with my children … time to teach them young!). Each mix just has a few ingredients to add, and we were off mixing!  Honestly, the hardest part was waiting for them to cool so we could taste test!!

The final verdict...

I can’t tell you how many times these bars have saved the day when I just want a little something sweet but don’t want to totally derail my progress … or when the gals want a treat, but the last thing I want for them is more junk! We loved our Paka baking mixes!

I was provided three Paka baking mixes in exchange for a review but the opinions expressed are all mine!
