I don’t know about you, but my kids are always hungry! We can have just finished one meal and they are asking about the next, and don’t even get me started on car journeys or days out! For that reason, having plenty snacks on hand is always a must and so when we were introduced to Pik-Nik, mozzarella cheese sticks, they seemed like the perfect snack for active children and busy parents.
Winner of the gold award at the 2018 International Cheese Awards for children’s best cheese, every Pik-Nik Twiller stick contains a glass of fresh milk and is made using fresh mozzarella. Not only does that mean that our children are getting a great source of vitamin A and D, is totally natural, with no artificial additives or preservatives, but they are ideal for snacks at home, lunch boxes, or food on the go.
Individually wrapped, Pik-Nik cheese sticks open up to reveal a very elastic, stretchy cheese, which can be peeled off to create something fun and tasty. I’ve tried them personally and the cheese is mild and creamy, and just perfect for little ones!
As a parent it’s so refreshing to find a healthy snack which the kids enjoy, whilst still giving my children 20% of their recommended daily calcium intake. After Harry broke his arm this Autumn I have been trying even harder to get as much calcium into the kids as possible for healthy bones, and this is such a great easy to give them that little bit extra.
Pik-Nik cheese strings are available at Sainsbury’s priced at between £1 and £1.50 for a pack of four individually wrapped cheese strings which personally, I think is a great price for a filling, healthy snack.
As for the kids, they love Pik-Nik cheese sticks and, as you can see, they really can be eaten anywhere! One thing’s for sure, our days out are far less fraught with cries of “I’m hungry!” and actually, for us adults too, they are pretty tasty!
