Organix Oaty Bar Snack

Making Snack Time Fun with Organix

2nd October 2017

I don’t know about you but I find that my children are always hungry. They would graze all day everyday if they could, who needs proper meals right? Jessica is still of an age where she will eat just about anything that I put in front of her, but Reuben? Well Reuben has an ‘opinion’ now, he knows what he likes. Sometimes he will ask for something healthy but most of the time he wants sweets, biscuits or crisps. Now I don’t mind him having these every now and again as a snack but I would prefer for him to eat something a little healthier.

Snack Time

Snacks are an important part of diet. We all know that, as adults, if we get “hangry” we are unable to concentrate on anything other than food! Do you think it is different for a child? Nope! According to KidsHealth, the best snacks are fruit, vegetables and foods containing whole grains and protein. Not always the most exciting types of food, meaning that we need to make it more exciting!

Organix Snack Time

We love Organix in our household. They have been a brand that we have used since Reuben was a baby. Even at 4 he still loves eating some of their carrot fingers and sweetcorn rings. If I’m honest, so do we! So when we were asked by Organix if we would like to have some of their products to try out their “fun plate recipes” we were really happy to get on board. Healthy foods for the children and some inspiration to make snack time fun!

I made the Organix Oat Bar Bug, it is aimed at toddlers so perfect for Jessica. As I was already making it for Jessica, I decided Reuben could have the same. Jessica paid absolutely no attention to what I had made she just ate it but Reuben smiled and laughed about it. I don’t know if it was my poor attempt he was laughing at, or the fact I had made a bug on his plate. Either way they both ate the snack and it was gone in the blink of any eye. Here is how we made it:

Organix Oaty Bar Bug

Oaty Bar Bug SnackTo make the Organix Oaty Bar Bug you will need:
1/2 Organix Oaty Bar
1 slice of apple sliced into 6 small pieces and 2 circles
2 Blueberry halves – although we were out of blueberries and used raisins instead.
Step 1
Place the oaty bar in the middle of a small bowl or plate.
Step 2
Add the two circles of apple to the end of the bar for eyes.
Step 3
Arrange the six small pieces of apple, three on each side of the bar, for legs.
Step 4
Place the 2 blueberry halves onto the apple circles to finish off the eyes.

Jessica eating oaty bar snackThe snack didn’t last long and the oaty bars went down well. So well that Reuben regularly asks to have them as a snack. We’re also big on eating what our children eat to see what it is like. I tried the carrot cake oaty bar*.
I was shocked as to how much flavour there was in the bar. It was a very strong taste. The oaty bar was really soft and chewable which is really important for toothy toddlers. Packed full of flavour I will definitely be adding these bars to the snack list.

Do you make food art for your children? I would love to know what they like, let me know below.

We were sent some Organix products to make the fun plate snacks. All opinions are my own.

  • I spotted these the other day and seriously considered buying them for my kids for packed lunches as they work really well even though the kids are 5 and 7!! Thanks for linking up to #Blogstravaganza

    • I’m not going to lie, I have taken them in my pack up occasionally and I’m far too old for these ha ha x

  • Lucy Grace Healey

    I love the idea of food art but meal times are always so busy! It’s lovely to get ideas though, anything to help get food down their necks! Haha! Thank you for linking with the #HoneybeeLinky! Hope to see you next time xxx

    • I know! It took a while to do these and so it is more of a treat then a regular occurrence. As for getting food down their necks . Jessica just eats at the minute but Reuben started to be more reluctant to eat we started with negotiating. Yep, I was negotiating with a 2 year old over what he had to eat before he could have a snack. Now when he asks I tell him to eat what ever he wants and to stop when he has had enough or is full then we can look at if he can have something else. He eats more than he used to! x

    I wish Little Man would try more varieties of food. I know he’d love these if he would only give them a chance. Thanks for joining in with #TriumphantTales, hope to see you again on Tuesday.

    • Reuben never used to be interested in these, he only wanted it because Jessica had it – he felt he felt he was missing out ha ha x

  • Kaiden

    I completely get what you’re saying about your children always being hungry. My little one is 3 years old and he eats constantly – but he’s so active at the same time. He has 2 breakfasts, 3 lunches, dinner and snacks in between! #ThatFridayLinky

    • Thank goodness it’s not just mine! Reuben was having 2 breakfasts and then wanting more food. I was worried I was overfeeding him but like you said if he is awake he is running! #Blogstravaganza
