Clearly Scrumptious Treats
Cranberry and Raisins – All different tasty flavours

The various dried cranberries and raisins were the clear favourite, because of all of the different flavours like apple, cherry, raspberry and blueberry followed by the sweet tasting dried strawberries which my Daughter couldn’t get over were actually really strawberries just dried and she said how delicious they tasted. I love how they are all around 100 calories so a perfect light snack anytime of the day.

Crunchy Apple Wedges

The dried apple wedges weren’t particularly popular with my family as generally prefer fresh apples, However these would be great on the go and a store cupboard staple as have a pretty long expiry date. The packets are a great swap for sweets and perfect for being out and about with children and adults alike. Which is how the Children have been eating these snacks usually during days out as a snack between meals.

These opinions are my own and I received this box of healthy treats in exchange for a honest review. Thank you Clearly Scrumptious

Natvia – The Natural Sweetener

I was recently given the opportunity to sample and give out samples of Natvia, A natural sweetener that can help you quit sugar.

For me sugar mostly in the form of chocolate is a huge problem and one that has lead to a two stone weight gain over the last 6 years since the birth of my first child.

I even had gestational diabetes in my last two pregnancies, no doubt linked to sugar consumption although once diagnosed I did all I could to keep my blood sugar levels under control, As I’ve had gestational diabetes I am now more at risk in fact 1 in 2 chance of getting type 2 diabetes so I really do need to cut down my sugar levels.

I used Natvia as an alternative in Cooking, baking and tea/coffee’s the feedback was over whelming good where people who tried it said, they couldn’t tell the difference. I am shortly going to be commencing a healthy eating 12 week plan from home and will be substituting sugar for Natvia in lots of recipes which I am quite excited about.

Natvia is available in Tesco, Ocado and Whole Foods.

Natvia has zero impact on blood sugar levels ( I even tested this on my old blood glucose monitor recently ) It also doesn’t contain: Aspartame, Saccharine, or Fructose like some sweeteners can do and is made from 100% natural sources. It’s definitely worth trying and is far easier to quit sugar with Natvia.
