A couple of weeks ago, Grace decided to take part in the Change4Life Sugar Swap. She then decided to give up sweets for Lent and so far she is doing really well. She is doing so well that, when she made a piggy biscuit at school the other day and decorated it with marshmallows and other chocolate, she knew she couldn’t eat it so she gave it to her Brownie leader instead. So, the arrival of our wonderful pack of Alphabites a week or so ago was a very timely one – and a thoughtful one too, look what they did!
Made by BEAR, Alphabites have become a firm breakfast favourite in this family and Grace loves the Cocoa version. There are so many sugary, salty cereals out there but thankfully that is not the case with Alphabites. They are made from just 6 ingredients – 5 tasty multigrains and the BEAR special ingredient – coconut blossom nectar. So you see, no refined sugar, salt or any other bad things.
Coconut blossom is found in the flowers of the coconut tree. It is naturally high in calcium and just one bowl of Alphabites (with 125 semi skimmed milk) provides almost half your daily calcium. It is also low GI, which means no sugar crashes!
The pack we received also contains some really fun monster-related items. Grace and I had seen the adverts on the TV so we recognised the amazing monster magnets straight away! They now have pride of place on our fridge, next to where Grace sits in the morning.
There is also a great competition to design your own Monster, plus a Monster craft pack – look out for both of these on Mini Creations over on KidGLloves in the coming weeks!
The magnets form the basis of Monsterbet City. There are 26 special backs of packs to discover the monster from each letter of the alphabet. There is Horace with his horrendous haircuts, Sly the Slippery Spynoodler who loves socks and secrets and Barney the Bin Bellied Bloover! Each box includes 4 free Monsterbet Magnets inside.
Aphabites our definitely here to stay in our house!
