Hot on the heels of the Sweete sachets, comes Sweete for baking.
A natural, low-calorie alternative to sugar, it is perfect in
cakes, biscuits, slices, stewed fruits and desserts.
Many parents love cooking with their children and see it as a
fun, educational way to spend time together. But too often the
cakes are laden with sugar making them unhealthy additions to
lunchboxes not to mention the danger of having these high-calorie
treats lurking in the cupboards at coffee time! Many mums admitted
that they had stopped baking altogether as a way of controlling
their own calories.
Teaching children to feel confident in the kitchen is becoming
increasingly important in a society where fast foods and processed
foods are the norm. Many parents know that teaching cooking and
baking will help their children make better food choices in the
future. Understanding what goes into the food they make at home
compared to what is on the label of many store bought foods, is a
huge and positive learning curve.
While baking is often seen as an indulgence there is no debate
that adults and children love sweet food. The question is how to
make it a more healthy choice. A number of nutritionists are now
saying the worst component of baking is not the eggs, flour or even
the butter, but the sugar. And that is where baking at home with
Sweete is the answer.
Sweete is made from the sweetest part of the Stevia plant, which
has been used for sweetening food for hundreds of years by the
Guarani tribe of South America. Not only is it natural but it also
tastes amazing, is gluten free and is perfect for diabetics. And of
course it is low in calories, making it a guilt free way of
enjoying kitchen time with the kids!
Sweete for baking will be available at the Auckland Food Show at
the introductory special price of $10 (incl. GST).
Sweete sachets are available throughout New Zealand at
Countdown. They will be available at the Auckland Foodshow for just
$6 (incl. GST).
