Healthy Munchies from Garden Picks

A friend who is also a mom asked me recently what I usually give K and G for snacks. To be honest, I don't really ban the kids from eating junk food but I make sure they eat more fruits than junks. Our usual snacks at home are fresh fruits like oranges (oranges cut into C-shape which G fondly calls smiley orange), banana, strawberries, grapes, watermelon, and pineapple.

Sometimes, I indulge the kids with frozen yogurt or icecream with fruit chunks.  I do anything that will make them eat their 2 doses of fruits a day like in G's case, I hide fruits that he doesn't like to eat on its own (eg. blueberry) in his yogurt bowl. On weekends, I give in and let them eat chips and whatever floats in their junk food boat. I know! Bad mama! *insert monkey covering face emoticon here*

All thanks to Garden Picks' healthy snack selection, I can now indulge the kids with their favourite crunchy munchies without feeling too guilty and lousy.

Here are the healthier snack choices you can get from Garden Picks for as low as $10 per 3 packets.

1. Honey Mustard Soya Crisps
K and M love mustard so this was a hit to them. I actually tried to use this as an alternative to croutons for M's salad dishes and he loved it. It gives the bland salad extra kick, flavour and texture.

2. BBQ Rice Crisps
K and I are huge fans of Japanese rice crisps so this BBQ flavoured one which we have never tried before was well received. So crunchy and yummy!

3. Roasted Green Soybean
Dry roasted soybeans are a great source of protein which is very important in building and maintaining body cells and tissues. You'd be surprise to know you get way more protein content from a cup of roasted soybean than a cup of milk.

4. Salted Caramel Peanuts
Gone were the days where we can only have salted caramel flavour in pastries and donuts. Now, you can have salted caramel flavoured peanut too! If salted caramel is not your thing, Garden Picks also have Thai sweet chili and Manuka honey flavoured peanuts. Yum!

5. Chili Corn Kernels
Filipinos like us are known for munching flavoured roasted corn kernels and the chili flavoured ones are always a hit.

6. Crispy Lotus Seeds
This is Garden Picks Top Seller and I understand why. Do you know that lotus seeds help cure insomia due to its natural sedative and calming effect? This is my top pick from all the snacks I mentioned above. I love how bland yet beneficial it is to treat my insomia.

You can find more healthy snack choices at Garden Picks, standard packs of 3 for only $10.
