When is it ok to give your kid a cookie? Or should you avoid them altogether? And what if they see you eating one? Do you have to give up all your sweet indulgences as well?!
As parents we want to feed out kids as nutritiously as possible so they will not only grow up healthy, but learn good eating habits as well. On the other hand, we also want to spoil our kids every once in a while and allow them to have treats so as not to feel deprived. It’s finding the balance between these two viewpoints that is the hard part.
Well thanks to Laughing Giraffe Organics and their line of Snakaroons, you won’t feel guilty about having a “cookie” or two… even if your kids catch you and you have to share.
The Product: Laughing Giraffe Organics are a line of snack foods, including coconut based “Snakaroons” that not only taste delicious, but are surprisingly good for you. Made from pure unprocessed ingredients, with no additives or preservatives, all items are considered raw (nothing is heated over 118 degrees), gluten-free, and organic.
A family run business, Laughing Giraffe Organics takes pride in their products, selecting ingredients based on their quality from reputable suppliers. With their motto being, “EAT WELL and LIVE WELL!” there is no doubt that these snacks will help you do just that!
In fact, their 4 flavors of “Snakaroons”, a macaroon-inspired snack, which include such flavors as Vanilla Almond and Pineapple Macadamia are unlike any “health-food” you’ve tasted. With the perfect balance of sweet, mixed in with the delicate texture of soft yet crunchy coconut flakes, these cookies will have you wondering why you haven’t tried them sooner.
At a mere 100 calories (give or take a couple) per cookie, and roughly 3 grams of fiber, these raw, organic, and gluten-free snacks are some of the most delicious and nutritious coconut-laced bites that I have indulged in.
Nutrition-Wise: Using only the purest organic ingredients, Laughing Giraffe Organics are not only delicious, they are nutrient dense and minimally processed. Made with raw, unsweetened coconut, agave, extra virgin coconut oil, and a variety of nuts, fruits and spices, depending on the flavor, there is no questioning whether or not these Snakaroons are good for you.
A great source of healthy fats, fiber, and protein, these cookies are also gluten-free, raw, vegan, non-GMO, and Certified Organic. Moreover, all Laughing Giraffe Organics are produced in a facility that is soy, wheat, dairy, and peanut free, making them the perfect snack if either you or your little one has food allergies or intolerances.
Where to Buy: To purchase these products, please visit Laughing Giraffe Organics’ Online Store.
Synopsis: As a mom of a 9-month old, I haven’t yet reached the point where my child is asking for “treats”. However, I was a nanny for 3 kids and can attest to the fact that it is not always easy convincing a begging child to eat a healthier alternative to their beloved cookies. Heck, it’s not always easy convincing yourself!
That’s why I am so happy to have found Laughing Giraffe Organics. Not only are their Snakaroons a cookie that I don’t feel guilty about indulging in, I can give them to my son (once he’s a bit older), and not feel like I am giving him something that I shouldn’t.
