Sweets are strictly a treat in my house. I don’t use them as reward for good behaviour (I read somewhere doing that encourages them to associate sweet things with happy times thus encouraging emotional eating).
But kids are kids and I’m not Gwyneth Paltrow so if they ask me for a sweet, sometimes I say yes. I like to have a bag (just one!) in the house so if they ask, I have something to hand and they can have one or maybe two. I think you can imagine their delight when we were sent a bag of Maynards Discovery Patch Sweets – a new range of fruit flavour jelly candy. They’re sweet (of course) but not overly so which I like. In fact the kids had two (for review purposes!) and as they didn’t taste like liquid sugar, they weren’t climbing the walls begging for more.
We received the Body Bits selection containing various body bits including feet, bones, brains and teeth. The outside of the pack offers puzzles, including an educational tour of the body, providing information on where each body bit should go along with facts demonstrating how amazing humans really are. I learned something – did you know that teeth are as unique as fingerprints or that adult bodies contain 206 bones?
The packaging also gives you the chance to download the Explore and Play app, just scan the code and get stuck in!
Maynards Discovery Patch range is available from all major retailers and has an RRP of £1.52.
