ARTIFICIAL COLOURING DOESN'T MAKE IT PASSED THE FRONT DOOR!
For some people, avoiding sugar is a necessity. Josh from Brisbane is one such example. He has two autistic children and because of this, sugar, and artificial flavourings and colours are definitely something to be avoided.
“I love having a healthy sweet treat option, but the main reason I keep them on hand is for my eldest son who has severe autism,” says Josh. “He's non-verbal, low functioning and high needs. Unfortunately, the medication he's on impacts his weight so having a sugarless and tooth friendly alternative is a blessing. A lot of other parents will agree that red food colouring is a no-no, but with a non-verbal severely autistic child it's far worse and very difficult to handle his elevated behaviour when exposed to anything with red food colouring in it.
“It's given me peace of mind and confidence to give the kids something you know is healthy, and they don't ask for more either as there is no sugar craving or crash that comes with other sweets.”
“The Ultimate Lollipops bag is a winner because our youngest son is also autistic and can be quite picky, he likes specific colours and flavours which can also change on any given day, whereas our eldest doesn't care, so it's a win-win”.
DIABETIC? YOU DON'T NEED TO MISS OUT
Clara adapted admirably after she was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes almost two years ago.
However, kids' parties, birthday celebrations at school and weekend treat time proved particularly difficult - until Clara and her family discovered Daz & Andy’s Healthy Lollies, which allowed her to eat lollies alongside her friends without any unpleasant side effects.
The ‘healthy’ lollies are devoid of refined sugar, so diabetics can eat them guilt-free with no dangerous spikes to blood glucose levels.
“Clara gets a sense of normality eating these lollies, so she doesn’t have to miss out alongside her friends when they come to play, as they also enjoy eating them,” says Clara's Mum. “It’s reassuring knowing they’re eating lollies that won’t ruin their teeth, and, as Clara also has coeliac disease, she can safely eat them as they are also gluten free".
