Pokemon saves the day!

Finding treats for lows hasn’t been easy. Luke has rejected Glucolift, cake frosting, cotton candy (seriously, kid?!), Nerds, Skittles, and Smarties. That leaves us with juice and a few kinds of cookies that hit hard and fast.

But a trip to Uwijamaya uncovered a new favorite: Pokemon fruit chews! This is not your co-op’s healthy fruit chew: ingredients are sugar, fructose, corn syrup, and a few other things (fruit is not one of them). 5 minutes after chomping down, drop averted!

“Pokemon saves the day!” yelled Luke, running laps around the kitchen island.

Botan rice candy is the one other candy this kid will eat (very high GI). Just like the waving kitty you see in stores and restaurants, this cat is good luck for us – right along with Pokemon.

    Luke and Our Sugar Babie are definitely on the same page when it comes to their treat selections! Candy is out as is most of everything else besides Apple Juice…that one is requested by name for lows. Pokeman certainly saved the day…Love it!
