My family recently trialled the Orgran gluten-free Itsy Bitsy Bears.
They are in a super cute bear shape (but the faces were a little unusual!Not that kids are really bothered by this sort of thing anyway - it's all about the taste right?)
BUT what impressed my family about them was how safe they were. You would be able to offer these at pretty much any kids party, play group or playdate. With confidence...
My girls loved the Berry flavour the best, the biscuits have a really pleasant flavour due to the rice flour not dissimilar to short bread and at only 70 calories a serve are even a nice little treat for mum with a cup of tea too! ;)
