    Sorry another question , those who have made the switch what positives and negatives did you have on make the change, whilst I think it's a positive change to make I can't stop thinking that when I make the change and then we go somewhere and take packet food they are going to be crazy feral due to all the differences, and this would be a negative.

    Default Trying to change from package foods to homemade

    Not really - DS has biscuits at pre school and mum always gives them ice cream after dinner at her place and whenever we go out to restaurants he can have desserts or if we are at BBQs at friends places I don't stop him from having some chips or whatever every one else is eating as that's when I think it can be a bit over the top but I just make sure at home we don't have those things ( unless it's a party or people are over ) so I know at least 80% of the time he's eating well

    Also when you go out there are a few packet foods that are ok - you just need to read the labels but anything flavoured like chips or things like shapes are full of MSG and bad additives - you can buy some additive free plain popcorn packets and biscuits

    Try buy organic popping corn ( health food Isle ) or GMO free if you can as corn is one of the foods that is allowed to be genetically modified in Australia

    But one of the cheap air popping machines as a xmas pressy maybe for the kids?

    I've been trying to make more snacks as the packaging for kids snacks is mental! Meals are easy to do from scratch, it's the grab and go foods that catch me out.

    The already mentioned RTLMT Teeny Teddies recipe is great. I don't have a thermomix so I melt the butter and honey in a glass mixing bowl in the microwave, then mix it all in that bowl - so easy. I've cut out normal size biscuits that worked as well. I've also substituted rice malt syrup for the honey, making a blander cookie better for adding cocoa/spices. Just cook them slowly until they are crispy or they don't keep well.

    I've also been using this cracker recipe with different seed variations and also accidentally made it with SR flour once which made a lighter cracker. Lots of salt sprinkled over before baking is yummo and again cook slow until very crispy. These stored in an airtight container last more than 2 weeks.

    I made a batch of bread dough (store pre-mix) and baked some mini cheesymite scrolls. I'm going to try some other flavours next (sweet chilli, caramelised onion etc).
