Back-to-School Baking and SunRice Mini Bites {Giveaway}

This post contains a product review and giveaway for SunRice Mini Bites.

So, chances were good that I was finally going to bake today.
While it is surprising cooler in the Sunshine State - well, by our standards anyway Brisbane (and Sydney) will be in the high 20's while the southernmost states will be 36 ° +, worse off is Adelaide which will hit 41 ° !

I planned to bake some back-to-school treats for days ...

This morning I was housebound from 8:30am -12 waiting for NBN (Internet) guy to assess our place - hopefully so I can increase my broadband limit from 8G to 100G without extra $. He didn't arrive , so I called and somehow hubby had his wires crossed -it's tomorrow.

The kids wanted to catch the bus anyway.
I wanted to meet Joel's teacher. I know Sam's gorgeous teacher.

I have 4 lovely lads here , all talking at once and playing couch Superheros. Oh dear, me.
Thank goodness they went to the secret hideout, with snacks...for 5 mins.
Fair is fair. Their grandmother had the four (her grandsons and my two) of them yesterday afternoon till this morning.

Though my mum is the cake baking Queen and no doubt will create lots of sweet baked treats for my boys while minding them, when I'm in hospital - they love savory items too.

Normally, they have 2 pieces fruit, 1 savory item and another. I struggle with finding affordable, yummy and healthy lunchbox snacks. I'd rather they didn't eat chips and they are only a rare treat.

Last week, while on holiday, we road tested SunRice Mini bites. They loved them, they were already big fans of thin rice/corn cakes - plain flavour , with a scrap of butter or Vegemite.

SunRice Wholegrain Mini Bites are delicious small, brown rice cakes, a perfect bite-size snack for hungry boys who want to stuff them in quick, so they can run off and play. Packed full of whole grains, seasoned with natural flavours, mini bites contain less fat than regular potato chips – a win when packing lunches for school.

Mini Bites are available in three flavours: Spooky Original, Devilish Chicken and Creepy Cheese. Devilish Chicken was their favourite. I was surprised how many were in the packet. Enough for two kids easy if you wanted to split them.

 My boys devoured them and instantly asked me to buy more. I doubt they will share.

They are slightly smaller than a 'Jatz' type cracker.
They are the perfect size for adult appetizers or lunch too - I spread a little tuna, cherry tomato or avocado or cream cheese on mine.

Available in the Woolworths’ health food aisle, they have high wholegrain content and nutritional value which makes Mini bites National Healthy School Canteen Amber compliant .

I have 3 x 8 packs , one of each variety to giveaway.
