MEET OUR NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK—AND THEY'RE NUT FREE!
At Happy Way, we not only make delicious products for the grown-ups in the family, but we also have a range of nutritious snack bars made especially with the kiddies in mind! 100% natural and filled with wholesome ingredients, our Kids’ Snack Bars are proudly…
- AUSSIE MADE
- and WITHOUT ANY HIDDEN NASTIES such as ARTIFICIAL FLAVOURS, PRESERVATIVES or SWEETENERS.
Whilst we already have three yummy fruity flavours available—Apple Cinnamon, Banana Bang and Strawberry Whip—we thought it was about time that we look after the lil’ ones and add some of Willy Wonka’s favourite candy to the mix, with three new flavours featuring drool-worthy dairy-free chocolate.
We’re super excited to introduce our new kids on the block—White Choc Raspberry, Choc Chip and White Choc Coconut Kids’ Snack Bars—that not only have all of the nutritional benefits of our original trio, but we’re also SUPER PROUD to say that these newbies are all NUT-FREE, making them the ideal lunchbox snack for the kids. All three flavours are packed with so much goodness and flavour and are the perfect pocket-sized snack, you’ll wanna throw a few in your handbag or gym tote for a sneaky on-the-go boost of energy for yourself too!
So, what makes our Kids’ Snack Bars the nutritional powerhouses they are and how do the ingredients support growing minds and bodies (and yours too) to be their happiest and healthiest selves?
Check out our ingredient breakdown below.
INGREDIENTS FOUND IN ALL THREE KIDS’ SNACK BARS
Made from ground chia seeds, chia meal is often used to replace wheat flour or eggs being that it’s gluten-free, and it gives a slightly nutty flavour to sweet and savoury baked goodies. Rich in fibre and protein, chia meal contains omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants. Some of the benefits of chia meal include improving digestion and gut health, boosting immunity, strengthening bones and providing a natural source of energy—all the things needed to keep the little ones healthy and happy!
RICE & GRAPE JUICE CONCENTRATE
Grape juice concentrate is full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits that protect us against illness and disease whilst strengthening heart and blood health. High in vitamin C which boosts immunity, grape juice concentrate is also rich in the mineral manganese which supports bone health and brain function, and it also provides a sweet yet slightly tart flavour.
Rice concentrate is made from ground rice hulls and used as an all-natural anti-caking agent to help give our Kids’ Snack Bars the right texture and consistency.
NATURAL PREBIOTIC FIBRE
Natural prebiotic fibre increases the good bacteria in the gut whilst decreasing the bad bacteria. This promotes good digestive health which not only keeps us regular but it also allows us to absorb all of the nutrients from the foods we consume. Another benefit of prebiotic fibre is that it nourishes our immune system to keep us healthy and strong, and it can improve our blood sugar levels too.
DESICCATED COCONUT & SHREDDED COCONUT
Besides providing a yummy, naturally sweet coconut flavour to our Kids’ Snack Bars, desiccated coconut delivers numerous health benefits too. Rich in minerals manganese and copper, and a good source of healthy fats and fibre, desiccated coconut is made by finely grating and then dehydrating the flesh of coconuts to remove all of the moisture. Desiccated coconut improves bone health, supports digestion, assists with blood health, increases energy and can boost metabolism.
Shredded coconut, that’s found in our Choc Chip and White Choc Coconut Kids’ Snack Bars, is made from the same meaty flesh of coconuts and provides the same nutritional benefits as desiccated coconut. The main difference between the two is that desiccated coconut is more finely ground whereas like the name suggests, shredded is in larger pieces. Adding the shredded coconut to these two bars slightly increases the flavour, giving it an extra delicious coconut taste.
Date paste is considered one of the healthiest ingredients on the planet and is included in all three of our Kids’ Snack Bars to provide an all-natural sweetness and to improve the taste and texture. Made from dried dates that are ground and converted into a paste, date paste has hints of caramel, brown sugar and vanilla flavours and is a great substitute for artificial sugars or sweeteners in various snacks or recipes. Date paste is rich in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants and can help to boost energy levels, reduce the risk of illness and disease, improve brain function, strengthen bones and support healthy digestion.
ORGANIC WHITE CHOCOLATE
Organic white chocolate enjoyed in moderation can provide numerous health benefits as it’s high in nutrients and vitamins. Made with organic cocoa butter, the white chocolate in our Kids’ Snack Bars is rich in antioxidants that help to fight against harmful toxins and reduce the risk of illness or disease. A good source of calcium, organic white chocolate also protects bones, lowers cholesterol, and can improve heart, liver, muscle and nerve health.
INGREDIENTS IN OUR CHOC CHIP & WHITE CHOC COCONUT KIDS’ SNACK BARS
Pumpkin seeds or pepitas are high in nutrients and deliver a slightly crunchy texture and nutty flavour to our bars. Rich in protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, pumpkin seeds protect the body from illness and disease and provide anti-inflammatory benefits that help maintain the overall health and function of the liver, bowels, bladder and joints. A good source of the mineral magnesium, pumpkin seeds can help regulate blood sugar levels and support blood and heart health. Combined with the amino acid tryptophan, pumpkin seeds can also promote a good night's sleep whilst reducing stress and anxiety.
NATURAL VANILLA EXTRACT
Vanilla extract is used in many recipes for its naturally sweet flavour and pleasing aroma. Besides the delicious taste, vanilla extract provides numerous health benefits whilst being super low in calories. With its antibacterial properties, vanilla extract can help prevent infection as well as protect the body against damaging free radicals that can cause harmful diseases or illnesses. A good source of magnesium and potassium, vanilla extract assists with muscle and nerve function and supports kidney and heart health. Because of its soothing scent, vanilla extract is also known to have a calming effect on the mind, improving mood and even acting as an antidepressant.
Himalayan salt delivers a tonne of nutritional benefits which is why we include it in so many of our products at Happy Way. Packed with more than 80 various minerals including potassium, iron and calcium, Himalayan salt can help to remove bacteria and detoxify the body, as well as assist with digestion. It also helps to balance pH levels in the body which allows us to absorb the nutrients from our foods better, as well as lower blood pressure. Besides all of these benefits on the body, Himalayan salt can also help to improve our quality of sleep.
INGREDIENTS IN OUR CHOC CHIP KIDS’ SNACK BARS
We all love a bit of chocolate, but dark chocolate comes with several nutritional benefits, making it a much healthier option than milk chocolate. One of the best sources of antioxidants, dark chocolate is rich in fibre and various other minerals including iron, magnesium, copper, potassium, zinc and manganese, therefore providing stacks of benefits to both our mind and body. Some of these include improving blood health, protecting the body against illness and disease and boosting brain function and mood whilst reducing stress levels.
INGREDIENTS IN OUR WHITE CHOC BERRY KIDS’ SNACK BARS
Packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and tonnes of beneficial medicinal properties, goji berries assist with vision, boost immune function, and improve blood health. Goji berries can also benefit mental health, improving depression and anxiety-driven behaviours. Rich in vitamins A and C, goji berries are known to improve skin health by boosting collagen levels and reducing the signs of aging. This superfood not only delivers benefits galore but also provides a deliciously sweet berry flavour to our White Choc Berry Kids’ Snack Bars.
DRIED ORGANIC STRAWBERRIES
High in vitamin C, dried organic strawberries are also a rich source of antioxidants, fibre, and various minerals including potassium, magnesium and manganese. Providing anti-inflammatory benefits, dried organic strawberries can boost immunity, promote healthy digestion, support heart health and prevent signs of aging by boosting collagen in the skin. Teaming up with superfruit goji berries to load our White Choc Berry Kids’ Snack Bars with fruity flavour, dried organic strawberries are known to boost brain function—keeping lil’ minds alert and focused.
BEETROOT JUICE POWDER
Filled with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, beetroot juice powder is made from dried beets that have been ground into a powder form, making it an easy way to gain tonnes of nutritional benefits and a subtle flavour to various smoothies, recipes, and of course, our Kids’ Snack Bars. Beetroot juice powder contains a higher concentration of nutrients than the whole vegetable, some of which include protein, fibre, iron, magnesium, potassium, folate and vitamins B6 and C. Just a small amount of beetroot juice powder in our Kids’ Snack Bars can help to boost brain power, increase energy, support blood and liver health, improve digestion and provide anti-inflammatory benefits too.
