For Moms, Moms-to-be, and Kids+
It seems that almost every kid these days has some sort of allergy or intolerance. Whether it be to dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, etc., you can no longer assume that the treats you bring to your child’s class are going to be okay for all the kids to eat.
Gluten and the intolerance - or all out allergy to - wheat, barley, and rye has become one of the biggest offenders in recent years. Whether in your typical breads and pastries, or even in soy sauce and many salad dressings, gluten is one of those “hidden ingredients” that is much more prevalent than you may think.
Once you realize that your child is intolerant to gluten, you understand the necessity to cut it out of their diet completely. However, they don’t. Especially when it comes to cookies, pastries, and other baked goods. All their friends can have them, so why can’t they? And giving them your typical run-of-the-mill gluten-free cookie isn’t going to cut it either since most of them are tasteless and/or as hard as a rock.
Thankfully, there are companies like Ginny Bakes who has made it their mission to create gluten-free baked goods that the whole family can not only eat, but love.
The Product: Ginny Bakes has made it their mission to create amazingly delicious cookies, bars, and even brownie and muffin mixes that just happen to be gluten-free as well. Founded by Mom of 4 and Holistic Nutritionist, Ginny Simon’s knows the importance of giving your kids healthy options. She also knows that kids can be your toughest critic. You need to do more than just fulfill their dietary needs, you need to satisfy their tastebuds as well.
And thus has been the goal of Ginny Bakes. With 9 different cookies and biscotti flavors to choose from, and 5 different baking mixes, including those for brownies, cookies, and muffins, Ginny Bakes has turned the idea of gluten-free baking into a healthy and tasty art form.
Nutrition-Wise: Not only are all Ginny Bakes products completely free of wheat, barley and rye, they are also USDA Certified Organic and Kosher. Made without preservatives, Ginny Bakes products need to be refrigerated or frozen after opening to maintain freshness.
Between 60-80 calories per cookie, and with roughly 2 grams of fat per serving, Ginny Bakes cookies are also relatively low in sugar and many of them contain fiber. There is also a completely vegan cookie (made without dairy), so if your child - or you for that matter - have a dairy intolerance as well, than you can enjoy these cookies too.
Or if cookies aren’t your thing, Ginny Bakes makes bars as well. At around 200 calories each, 100 of which come from fat, these bars are completely wheat and oat free. With a texture and taste similar to other nutritional bars that do contain these ingredients, your kids won’t even know that they are eating gluten-free.
Synopsis: Having a kid with allergies is hard. Especially when they don’t understand why they can’t have all the goodies and treats that the other kids do. Luckily, at least when it comes to gluten-intolerance, Ginny Bakes has you covered.
Her line of cookies, muffins, and brownies truly are delicious and will have your whole family begging you for more.
