The watchword today is health – and rightly so. As consumers become more health conscious, they’re demanding that all the foods they eat be healthier – even our beloved chocolates and sweets. |
Manufacturers and suppliers of wholesale sweets are well aware of the need to provide healthier products. After all, sugar has gotten some rather bad press over the past couple of years. That’s one of the reasons why more and more vitamin-enriched and reduced sugar products are being produced and sold at our local sweet store or supermarket.
Vitamins are an essential part of our diet. They are vital for our growth and mental development, they play a major role in keeping us healthy and helping prevent a whole range of ailments. A lack of these essential building blocks can have dramatic results. As our bodies don’t produce vitamins by themselves, we need to eat vitamin-rich foods or take supplements to ensure that we’re getting enough.
Vitamins for Kids Who Won’t Eat Their Veggies
Vegetables are a great source of vitamins. As adults we realise this and most of us make sure to eat at least a couple of servings every day. But what about our children who often run a mile from tomatoes, carrots, spinach etc.?
To help anxious parents win the Vitamin War with their children, manufacturers and suppliers of wholesale sweets are finding creative and attractive ways to produce product lines that are vitamin enriched but just as good to eat as ever.
With so many innovative products hitting the shelves, I decided that, rather than try to just give a list of the various sweets available, I’d tell you about just one - but one that is a great example of the healthier, tastier sweets just waiting for you to try them.
Yummy Lollipops and Fruit Drops from YumEarth
YumEarth seems to have found the perfect combination that will satisfy that craving for something sweet, but that will also provide you (and the children) with a dose of much-needed vitamins.
This family-oriented company, founded by two parents concerned for their children’s health, produces a range of natural, organic sweets that hit the mark in every respect. A great favourite with the kids (and quite a few adults as well if the truth be told) is their range of organic lollipops made from pure, natural fruit juices (peach, strawberry, and mango for example) that contain 100% of your daily vitamin C needs. They even have some with 300% of your daily vitamin C requirement. I can’t think of a better way to satisfy that craving for something sweet and get health benefits all rolled into one.
Yet another YumEarth delight being sold by suppliers of wholesale sweets are its fruit drops. Here as well, they are organic, made from natural ingredients and pack a vitamin C punch. But some also come with an added extra – a dose of anti-oxidants to further strengthen your body (I know they’re for kids but, who are we kidding? They are so great that adults also enjoy them).
The Times Are Changing
To take a line from Bob Dylan’s classic song, “The Times They Are A Changing”. Nowhere is this more evident than in the way we relate to our health and the increasing awareness of the fact that the food we eat has a direct relationship to our health, quality of life and longevity. Manufacturers and suppliers of wholesale sweets are well aware of this fact and of their responsibility to provide us with a healthier product and we are seeing more and more organic, natural and healthier sweet alternatives on the shelves every day.
