I only choose ingredients sourced from producers with a reputation for developing healthy foods. Any new snack we develop is sampled and approved with groups of children. They need to have the right taste, mouth-feel and eye-appeal.

Here’s why our snacks are different:

  • Nutritionally balanced snacks that children love
  • Tailored and addressed to your child
  • Packed with goodness, not additives
  • Stories, fact cards, toys and fun characters in every pack

Kids have changing nutritional needs as they grow. We customise snack boxes based on your child’s age and taste ratings.

  • PRE-SCHOOLERS (3-5 YRS)

    • Approaching school age
    • Eating habits are formed
    • Brain is developing fast
    • Daily contact with other kids means they need a strong immune system

    WHAT TO EAT

    Plenty of fruits and veggies (fresh or dried) and wholegrains, healthy fats (nuts and fish)

    SUITABLE SNACKS

    Fruit rolls, bars, nuts and wholegrain cakes – packed with vitamins, minerals and fibre

  • MIDDLE SCHOOLERS (6-9 YRS)

    • Integrating into school life and establishing peer groups
    • Growing quickly, becoming more active
    • Bones develop in size and strength
    • Nutrient requirements are considerably higher

    WHAT TO EAT

    Plenty of starchy carbohydrates, proteins, dairy foods and at least five portions of fruit and veg a day.

  • PRETEENS (10-12 YRS)

    • Susceptible to iron deficiency due to growth spurts
    • Increased bone growth between 10 to 14 years

How we build your box

We’ve developed a simple system to determine everything we need to know about your child’s needs, life stage, likes and dislikes so that we can provide a unique snack box that will constantly develop as your child grows and changes.
