Snacking snacking snacking. If my mischievous toddler had it her way then she would happily eat cookies all day everyday. Now i don’t mind the odd treat of course but I’d prefer her to have at least some nutritional value to her snacks. She is a pretty good eater to be honest which is great but snack time is always a battle. Why won’t she eat these delicious looking carrot sticks i spent ages chopping up? Or the fruit salad i made? Having something we both agree on would be ideal and ease the snack time dilemma!
This is where Chobani come in. Chobani are Australia’s number one yogurt brand, and they are launching Chobani Gimmies. They’re a new range of Greek Yogurt snacks bringing the fun back to yogurt. They are high in protein, with no preservatives, artificial flavours or colours. Whats not to love! Chobani Gimmies also combines authentic strained Greek yogurt with fun mixins – delivering Australian kids seriously good yogurt, with a silly amount of fun.
Here are some interesting facts from research commissioned by Chobani Gimmies:
- Nearly half of pre-school parents feel pressure from other mums regarding snack time choices
- 74% of parents have had trouble with their kids because of food choices
- 60% of pre-school parents have had a fight with their child over what snack they can have
- 79% of parents would be willing to give up 1-5 hours of sleep if it meant making snack time easier
Have you felt these pressures? I certainly have. There has been many a time i have reached for the cookies in order to have peace and quiet for more than 0.3 seconds or to curb the public meltdown. I have felt the stares from other parents as i gave my toddler a kinder egg or a chocolate freddo. That’s why when i heard about Chobani Gimmies i was so intrigued to find out more.
Chobani Australia Managing Director, Peter Meek, said: “Chobani Gimmies was co-created with Australian parents and kids to create a range that gets the tick of approval from both.”
“We worked hard to craft a range that ticks all the boxes. We recognised that parents and children don’t always agree when it comes to meals and snacks, and we wanted to challenge the idea that “good food” can’t be “fun food”. Parents will love that they’re made with Chobani low-fat Greek yogurt and kids will love the crazy flavours and wacky characters.”
“We had a lot of fun with our new range. From developing flavours that connote Aussie party food, like fairy bread, to working with kids to co-create the range of loveable Gimmies characters and their personalities. We’re so excited for kids to meet their new go-to snacking friends for fun.”
So the lovely people at Chobani sent me some to try and I must say i’m impressed. Fun flavours and Rosie loves the cool packaging and exciting mixins. The convenient packaging separates the Greek yogurt from the dry mix-in ingredients, which allows snackers to flip in their mix-ins. Making it an easy, mess-free snack to have at home or on-the-go!
They come in some seriously delicious and fun flavours.
