As school winds down and the summer heat places us in relaxation mode, we tend to go from rigid, structured routines to fun and freedom. I don’t know about you, but when summer hits my family we become nomads in our car. From parks to friends’ houses to splash pads, we are on the go a LOT! These adventures are carefree and fun, but they can end up stressful when your little ones begin complaining about hunger.
For a normal family this probably wouldn’t be so tragic; a stop at a local coffee shop or fast food restaurant can provide the necessary fuel to continue the adventure. Unfortunately, in my family that is a no-go! With Mom diagnosed with celiac disease and two out of my three children receiving positive blood tests for it, it really complicates things. Coffee shops and fast food joints offer limited gluten free options and even when we are lucky enough to find such an option, the worry about cross contamination is too high to risk. As a result, this mom must be prepared! The problem is I struggle to find easy-to grab allergy friendly snacks that are healthy, taste great and can be thrown in the car for when a summer adventure leads to hungry tummies!
I am so excited that I have discovered FreeYumm products. FreeYumm creates delicious, all-natural ingredient bars and cookies for kids. Created in a dedicated bakery, it eliminates the risk of cross-contamination of the top allergens. Each bar or cookie is created with real ingredients (i.e. whole oats, bananas, blueberries), and avoid things like starchy fillers, corn syrup or refined sugars. Available in a variety of cookie and granola bar flavours, these bars are not only a huge family hit, but they contain simple and clean ingredients (ground flax, chia seeds, etc)!
Each bar or cookie comes wrapped in its own individual bag, allowing for portion control and a quick and easy snack as we are headed out the door. I’ve even filled a plastic container of different flavours of FreeYumm bars and cookies to store in my car for those times we find ourselves hungry on a spontaneous adventure! The best part is this snack can be shared safely with anyone, allowing summer to be fun instead of stressful!
They’re also carried in many grocers near you such as Nofrills, Loblaws, Fortinos, and select Sobeys. Find a local store near you with the Free Yumm locator!
