My kids started karate when they were wee little ones, the twins had just turned 6 and my youngest started when she was 4. This past week I am so excited to have watched the twins receive their black belt in karate… they have put in so much effort and perseverance over the past 6 years, I am so excited for them to have reached this level. This is a photo of them below with their Shihan after their grading… they were exhausted!
They train 2-3 times a week and attend karate tournaments regularly. I have found the tournaments have really helped them boost their confidence and self esteem, helped them learn to believe in themselves and to give everything a go. We had a tournament on the weekend and I usually spend some time the day before prepping food to take along. I made some Macadamia, Almond & Coconut Balls, Apple & Oat Muffins, egg sandwiches plus each of us had a banana and a mini packet of Jelly Beans. This will keep them full of energy for the day.
I pack the Allen’s Jelly Bean as a treat for the kids to have after they have finished all their events. I like the new little snack size packs as I know the kids won’t over indulge (mine tend to if they are given a bowl, they don’t know when to stop).
There are 9 Jelly Beans in each packet and I LOVE how they have left out the black (aniseed) flavour as most kids don’t like them anyway. The ‘Fruity Craze’ flavours are – Blueberry, Raspberry, Apple, Orange, Strawberry, Apricot, Vanilla and Blackcurrant. I didn’t realise the colours resembled fruits until now… there you go!
We have always loved the Allen’s Jelly Beans, my favourites are the pink and white (strawberry and vanilla) flavours. I also make little afternoon snacks for the kids after school, usually a friday afternoon snack to celebrate the end of the week! I put some Jelly Beans in the bottom of a cup and have the cone ready for when they get home, then I scoop in some ice-cream and they decorate the top of their ice creams with the jelly beans.
If you’re quick, pop on over to Allen’s Facebook page to catch their sampling of the new Mini Packs!!
