Good Snack Idea
Healthy quick Snacks
For Me, there is always a dearth of good easy snack ideas for kids
Also, it takes a lot of time to think about yummy and healthy snacks to make
The ones we get in the market are full of additives, preservatives, leavening Agents, Emulsifiers and made in palmolein oil.
My 15 months old daughter loves to nibble on biscuits, crackers and junk food mainly due to teething i guess?. Hence, my search for quick and healthy snack ideas started and i chanced upon Timios snacks on bigbasket.
In the life of Moms of Toddlers like me, it already is a big challenge as to what to feed the kids that is not harmful, full of additives and preservatives.
Timios, is that ray of hope in my MomOfZo life, and i really wish It really is what it claims.
This is the first post on Snacks / food items that my lo and myself will try and review.

HOW TO EAT OUR ZOOKERS

Whole Grains (Wheat, Ragi, Corn flour, Oats), Jaggery, Wheat flour, Red Cherries 7%, Malt Extract, Butter, Skim milk powder, Refined Vegetable Oil, Salt, Dry Yeast, Baking Soda, Baking Powder, Soya Lecithin, Added Natural Peach flavour
The Box comes with 4 small packets, It makes it easy to carry 1 packet containing almost 10 biscuits with various cute animal shapes like bird, elephant, bunny, fish, turtle etc.
It is less sweet, contains jaggery so compared to other biscuits that kids may like, this one is less tasty but definitely healthy.
There’s a hint of tartness due to cherry bits and that’s lovely.
Shapes are interesting too but Zo does not identify them and they do not fascinate her as much as i would like it to. I liked the Fish and the turtle ones best.
It was bad that some pieces were broken, given the good quality packaging.
Unfortunately, Zo is not really hooked up on this because it’s not a cream biscuit or a sweet biscuit or chocolate cake for that matter. But i love it.
As suggested, i tried giving her a puree of crushed biscuits and milk and she took some, so there is still some hope.
Overall SR Rating : 4/5
Ease of use: 5
Shelf life: 5
Will i Repurchase?
