Summer time means late nights, outdoor fun, special snacks and enjoying life!
The flexibility in schedules thanks to summer holidays, no school and a break in after school activities means that there is more time for outdoor adventures. Pool parties, trips to the park and camping are just a few of my families favourite activities. The more time spent outside means more snacks my children need to fuel their fun. Normally, I insist on healthy whole foods like fruits and vegetables, between meals to keep my kids going. I know summer is a time for extra fun, so every once in awhile I like to surprise my kids with a fun treat that reminds them of their summer fun!
Living with a food allergy can leave one feeling left out when it comes to traditional summer foods like BBQ burgers, corn dogs and my favourite, S’mores. Finding a summer treat that is delicious, well known and full of flavour that the ENTIRE family can enjoy can be daunting. Homemade packaged treats are hard to come by and tend to taste fake.
