Zeynep Ozcan

September is a big rush for mothers. It used to mean only getting ready for school season rush may be but for a while it also means to prepare healthy snacks for school. If you listen doctor suggestions and try to keep your child safe from white flour, refined sugar and such, here are some recipes to use.

Believe me, the troubles of being a mom is common. Getting your children like healthy food and raise them as well as we can. When we consider the relationship of the intestine with body and soul wellness it is inevitable to feed them with home-made healthy food. It is my pleasure to present these recipes for your family.

There are some points to consider while preparing healthy snacks. The most important part is not baling honey. Some engineers don’t agree but most of the doctors think that we shouldn’t. I believe to avoid from suspected things. I use dried or fresh fruit instead of honey if I have to bake.

When you look over the recipes you’ll see there is no baking powder or yeast. I use bake or carbonate if I have to because both of them are refined substitutes.
