Who wants a healthy, no sugar added, dessert? Me! These Berry Granola Popsicles are the ticket.
I am a sugar addict. And I have sadly passed that on to my kids.
But sugar is not good for you.
Sugar… We all love those tasty sugary desserts, but sugary foods tend to make our blood sugar skyrocket, which can cause problems with attention and focus, moodiness and frustration. Desserts with natural sugar or low amounts of sugar can steady blood sugar levels, especially in children, and can benefit the brain and help with learning. It’s amazing what healthy sweets can do for your child’s digestion, metabolism and development.
Because my son is struggling so much in school, and we are working really hard to change up his diet so he will have maximum brain power, I have joined forces with Integrated Learning Systems to bring you today’s post.
My son attends their tutoring center, and I have seen great results. They do not just focus on academics, but on overall wellness, from physical and mental, to dietary, and more. In talking to the center owner, I have seen just how much of a difference diet can make in my son’s success or failure in school.
Why do you think when they are doing those standardized tests they send home a note saying, “Make sure your child comes to school having eaten a healthy breakfast.” Yup! It matters. But we all need treats, so I have a couple fun ones to share with you today.
The first are these Berry Granola Popsicles. Perfect for summer!
Get the Recipe on Integrated Learning System’s blog.
They are really yummy, and easy to make. So head over and check them out.
