Whitworths has launched Bright Little Nuts, claimed to be the UK’s first ever nut snacking range designed for children aged five years plus.
The three varieties – Almond Halves, Mini Cashews and Mini Hazelnuts – are available in 20g multipacks and offer children a natural snack high in protein, vitamins, minerals and fibre.
The multipacks feature collectable ‘My Amazing Body’ cards, featuring quizzes, facts and games to encourage children to learn about health, development and body fuel.
Marketing director Phil Gowland said: “There’s a real gap in the market for a snacking product which is packed with good stuff that isn’t boring, and can make life that little bit easier for parents looking to give their kids a healthy snack in between meals.
“The feedback from parents we’ve spoken to about the range so far has been incredible, and we can’t wait to get more when packs hit shops this September.”
