Many of us have been to (and thrown) children’s birthday parties where colourful bowls of red frogs, chocolate freckles, fairy floss and lollypops are just about everywhere.

While the kiddies love these sugary-snacks, us mums are generally not fans of the afternoon sugar rush….and sudden crash. Sure, a lolly here and there is fine and dandy – but an entire day picking at a confectionary birthday buffet can send our little ones wild.

In order to dodge the sugar-mayhem – this mum made a variety of healthier and wholesome snacks WITHOUT SUGAR for her daughters fourth birthday party by using treats and recipes from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

Sugar-free party treats for the little ones

5 sugar free party treats:

1. Healthy Chocolate Weetbix Slice

This recipe is certainly a fave with our mums (and their children it seems). Loaded with coconut oil, cocoa and peanut butter – these treats are easy to make and freeze for later on.

You can get the recipe here.


2. Healthy “Nutella” Bliss Balls

Anything ‘Nutella’ sounding (and tasting) is certainly a hit from our experience. To make these treats look extra kiddie-enticing, Rae cut them into heart shapes.

You can get the recipe here.

3. Choc Dipped Peanut Butter Bliss Balls

Cashews, rolled oats and peanut butter … YUMMO!

4. Mint Choc Bubble Crunch

5. Tiramisu Cupcakes (minus the coffee)

Cocoa powder and dried dates! Tasty and satisfying. You can get the full recipe (and list of ingredients) on our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge Hub.

While our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge is a program designed to help mums lose weight, it also helps educate women about food, healthy eating and lifestyle changes that the whole family can benefit from.

Rae certainly agrees with this, admitting that the Challenge has helped her make good, healthy food choices for herself as well as for her family. Another delicious tiramisu recipe!

“The Healthy Mummy has educated me on the choices that I make and it has made me flip packets and read what goes into my food because that stuff goes into my body,” she says.

“The stuff that also goes into my kid’s body too.

“We had a wonderful party and there wasn’t a whiff of that glazed over sugar high madness that normally peaks midway through a kid’s party and mast the last leg of it hellish.”

While mostly family was in attendance for the big birthday bash, Rae confirmed with all parents of littles ones that they did not have a nut allergy – given that a few of these healthy treats contained them.
