These days, we’re all busy– raising families, advancing our careers, and just generally trying to keep up with the demands of our crazy modern lives. It’s so tempting, and just so easy, to take advantage of all the convenient options out there when it comes to food.
From convenience meals at the grocery store to the fast-food drive through on the way home, it’s tough to bypass the convenience of not having to cook when you’re already struggling to get everything done in a day.
And what about treats?
As anyone with kids knows, it can be a real challenge to find treats for kids that you can feel good about.
Over the past several decades there has been an increase in awareness around the additives that are working their way into our food. One of the most distressing issues is the huge quantities of sugar and high-fructose corn syrup that seem to be added to pretty much everything we eat.
In addition, there have been alarming reports of the dangerous health effects of these additives- many of which have been linked to ADHD, cancer, and a wealth of other conditions. In fact, for years now, organizations such as the Center for Disease control have been warning us about the consumption of added sugar, fats and chemical preservatives and the dangerous effects on our health.
And we’re supposed to give this stuff to our kids?
At Snowie King, we set out to find a solution– a sweet treat that kids would love, without all the harmful additives of mass-produced foods. Our shaved ice treats are made from the highest quality natural ingredients, with no artificial dyes, and no high fructose corn syrup.
Our philosophy on food is based on farm-to-fork goodness, which makes for safe and yummy treats.
Over the past several years, there has been a movement calling for consumers to trade out their modified, over processed foods for genuinely fresh foods.
From dairy to meat and produce, and of course treats, healthy eating has begun to take on a whole new meaning as consumers learn more about the dangers of mass-produced foods.
Farm to fork eating has several benefits:
- Halting the progress of contamination of our overall food supply through awareness
- Putting a stop to the environmental damage caused by large farms and factories that mass produce food
- Avoiding potential damage to our health through GMOs and other genetically modified foods
- Helping to support local farms and the local economy
- Ensuring strong health by eating foods from natural sources with no additives or preservatives
The farm-to-form movement is gaining momentum, which is making it much easier for consumers everywhere to both learn more about how to eat better, while sourcing more convenient yet healthy meals.
In many communities throughout North America, farmer’s markets and produce coops are growing in number, making it easier to source groceries conveniently.
Farm-to-fork eliminates both dangerous chemicals and empty calories, and many proponents have said that after switching to a Farm-to-Fork lifestyle they’ve enjoyed weight loss benefits, as well as overall health benefits.
Farm-to-Fork as it relates to Snowie King
At Snowie King, our mission was to create treats that you can feel good about– our shaved ice contains no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial dyes or flavors– we use only the highest quality ingredients, from pure cane sugar to fruit and vegetable extracts, along with natural preservatives.
Let’s face it– as a parent, it’s fun to watch your kids enjoy a treat now and again.
At Snowie King, you can relax and indulge your family, knowing that they’re eating natural goodness that won’t put their health at risk!
