Best Fun Christmas Snacks for Kids
One fundamental Christmas memory from childhood is the festive foods that the season’s celebrations bring.
As a Mum who does like to limit the sugars my children consume, I am so excited to have discovered Naturally Sweet. They offer a huge range of natural sugar alternatives that don’t cause huge spikes in blood sugar and Xylitol is even good for children’s (and adults’) teeth!
These natural sugar alternatives can be used in place of sugar to create some yummy treats without the sugar rush.
This collection of Christmas snacks has been contributed from around the globe by some talented recipe developers. A personal note to them to say thank you for all each of you do!
