I believe one of the greatest gifts we can give our children is a love and understanding of their own bodies and part of this is knowing how good we feel when we give our bodies, real, nourishing food.

If there is ever going to be one thing that I am happy to spend money on in regards to my kids, even when on a budget it is their health and nutrition.

This Winter I am delighted to share that we have not had any colds in our house! No flu's or runny noses, no tummy bugs. It has been GREAT!!

Do I have a secret tip? You bet I do!

We have combined lots of healthy, yummy food. Lots of home grown and organics, lots of exercise and sunshine with an extra boost of Superfoods for Kidz products.
My kids are not fussy eaters, they love their vegetables and fruit, their meals and snacks, in fact you could say they are both little foodies!! And I do SO love superfoods and anything that gets a big power boost of nutrition, antioxidants and all those great super food power ingredients into them so I was really excited to come across superfoods that were especially for kids!
What an exciting way to really boost your kids health and immunity, especially with all the things they do and places they play...
I was familiar with adult superfoods and I like using them a lot so I was thrilled to discover this range and could also really see how helpful they would be too if you had fussy eaters.

''Superfoods for Kidz are Australia’s first ever all natural, nutrient-dense super food formulations designed for kids’ tastebuds and parents’ peace of mind.
Superfoods for Kidz are combinations of wild harvested Superfoods,organic fruits and vegetables carefully selected by our nutrition team for their intense nutritional properties to support the wellbeing of kids and because they taste YUMMY!. Our products are also 100% organic and were also carefully developed with allergies in mind so they contain no Gluten, Dairy, Soy, Corn, Nuts or any artificial flavours, colours or additives.


Why do we need Superfoods for Kidz ? because our soils today are over harvested and have little or no nutrients left in the soil. Nutrients are vital to keep our immune system healthy, and our immune system is what fights off disease.


Superfoods for Kidz are a better source of nutrition than multivitamins for a number of reasons:
Superfoods for Kidz are natural, whole FOODS! They provide bioavailable vitamins, minerals and enzymes. Bioavailable means ‘naturally occurring’, so your body can recognize them, break them down, and use them for maximum health benefits. Multivitamins, on the other hand, bear no
resemblance to real food. They have NO enzymes, and they lack a lot of the whole food factors your body looks for when breaking down and utilizing nutrients. Multivitamins are synthetically produced and are often full of wax, binders and emulsifiers; some children’s vitamins even include artificial sweeteners. Superfood for Kidz are digested, absorbed and used by your body more easily than multivitamins because they are 100% NATURAL!"

I have to admit I have tasted a lot of superfoods and powders from health food shops in my life but I was shocked at how yummy these products were, and especially blown away at the fantastic organic and natural ingredient listings on the back of them all, you feel goosebumps of goodness all over as you read them and you are really that delighted to be giving these great products to your kids. 

You feel like, finally, someone really gets it that we want only the best for our kids.

And the kids verdict?

Well let me just say that these products are so moorish I wouldn't expect them to be around for long!
For me their coco biotics bars are, I kid you not, yes, I am going to say it, better than chocolate bars! Yes yes, I know, it is a big call and those that know me well know how much I love (a lot) my chocolate but I can honestly say I was blown away with these bars and I honestly would reach for one of these of a chocolate bar, I truly would they are YUMMY...! And no guilt afterwards...
And they also have a gorgeous, perfect portioned size kids version too, perfect bars for lunch boxes.

They have a fantastic range of products and I will be sharing some recipes with you on the blog and fb featuring the products so stay tuned for them all, they alos currently have a sale on with 15% off so go and have a look!!

  1. This sounds wonderful. Unfortunately, many of the products you mention in your recipe are not available in England. Makes me wish I could return to the land of my birth. Visiting from BC.
