By Amrita Gracias
Deepak and Sandhya are on their monthly trip to the grocery store to pick up their essentials. They head to the snacks section looking for simple munchies they can give their young children. Looking at the regular options on the shelves, they aren’t too keen on these calorie-laden foods. And, as they examine the ingredients more closely, some questions crop up in their minds.
Are these run-of-the-mill snacks good enough for a growing toddler? Are they healthy foods to snack on? Do they have the right nutritional requirements? Or, are they just loaded with unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients?
Haven’t you experienced that moment many times when you’ve handed your child a packet of biscuits or chips? As parents, we are often concerned as to whether the snacks we give our children are healthy enough. Well, what if we said that you needn’t worry anymore? Yes, you read that right! Because with Timios, every bite is honest, with wholesome goodness!
Timios – Food that’s good for kids!
Timios is a brand of high-quality snacks, exclusively for children.
- Are made with natural and healthy ingredients that are high in nutrition and energy (so, you can be sure that your growing children get all the right nutritional needs)
- Are 100% natural; they are completely free of preservatives and artificial colouring
- Are mildly seasoned with natural spices (unlike most other snacks that contain high levels of artificial flavouring)
- Are created with children in mind and are, therefore, age-appropriate
How it all started
Who better to come up with healthy snacks for kids than concerned parents! Yes, the whole idea of Timios was conceived by a brother-sister duo (parents themselves), who found hardly any healthy foods for kids in the packaged food sector. They felt that if snacks could be healthy, fun and tasty it would be a win-win situation for both parents and kids. Timios snacks are loaded with taste and nutrition on the inside and fun on the outside. Thus, they came up with their own brand of easy snacks for kids that fit this requirement. Timios, meaning ‘honest’ in Greek, conveys that the products are honestly wholesome and healthy, made with real ingredients and void of sugars, calories, and other ingredients detrimental to children’s health.
What’s so good about Timios snacks?
Well, to begin with, they are ‘goodness on the inside and fun on the outside’! So, eating healthy snacks for kids need not be boring any more. And, Timios snacks are full of natural flavours that your kids are sure to relish. They are age-appropriate – for babies, toddlers and preschoolers – keeping in mind their specific health, nutrition and portion size requirements.
Here are more reasons why you should be choosing Timios products for your kids:
They are non-fried snacks, thereby avoiding excess and unhealthy fat for your children.
- They are made with whole grains and natural ingredients that are tasty and healthy for your little ones.
- Not all adult foods are suitable for children. Timios’ snacks are age-appropriate and the nutritional value in these snacks is carefully planned to ensure children get their nutritional needs.
- The snacks are soft, easy to chew and even break down and dissolve easily in the child’s mouth.
- They are made of whole grains and, therefore, provide your child with the much-required fibre content.
- These snacks are great finger foods, especially for younger children. They can be eaten plain while some can even be mixed with milk.
- The packaging technology used for the products ensures that the food stays fresh for a long time.
- Although high in nutritional value and made from high-quality ingredients, Timios snacks are priced modestly.
- What’s even more interesting is that even adults can enjoy Timios snacks – they’re just kid-centric not kid-specific! So, the whole family can enjoy healthy snacking together!
