The team at Walkers sent Little Man some new Hoops & Crosses to try out recently, as well as a rather cute Monkey which he is currently cuddling in bed! Hoops & Crosses are a new range of crisps from Walkers which are made from wholegrain and contain just 85 calories per bag. They come in 3 flavours – Roast Beef, Prawn Cocktail and Salt & Vinegar. All three are also suitable for vegetarians, which when you look at the flavours available IS a tad alarming, but hey ho.
We were sent a bag of Roast Beef to try, and we enjoyed them with our lunch the other day. Little Man devoured his share pretty swiftly, but then again he never stops eating. Thankfully I also enjoyed mine. They were really tasty and didn’t essentially taste “healthy” so the fact that Little Man would happily eat a bag is great. An alarming 27% of children don’t get ANY wholegrain in their diets, so these crisps are an excellent way to sneak some in there without them really noticing.
Whilst I don’t let Little Man eat too many crisps – despite Mummy being somewhat addicted to them herself… – I am quite happy for him to have these as a treat. They’d make a great addition to a lunchbox or picnic on a day out, or to munch on whilst he watches yet more episodes of Peppa Pig.
Walkers Hoops & Crosses are available now at supermarkets across the country.
