Nutritious Breakfast for Children from Bud of Joy

[Sponsored Review]

We know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but the choice of food for breakfast is even more crucial.

Pei Pei and Hao Hao love bread and cakes. As parents who are concerned about our children's health, we bought them wholemeal bread. 

Why wholemeal bread? According to Health Promotion Board, whole-grains are rich in fibre, minerals and various phytochemicals (beneficial plant substances), eating whole-grains can help to reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. 

Unfortunately, Pei Pei and Hao Hao refused to eat those wholemeal bread that we bought from supermarket. They complained that those bread were too dry and gritty.

When the nice folks from Bud of Joy,  a local organic bakery and store, offered us some of their organic baked goods, I was really curious. In what ways are their organic baked goods different?

I was invited to visit their bakery which is located in a quiet neighbourhood in MacPherson. Entranced, I was amazed by their open kitchen. Opposite to the kitchen were shelves of organic products. 

I had a nice chat with Sarah, the wife of the owner. She shared with me that organic food are recommended for growing children, because they have low levels of pesticides and drug-resistance bacteria, this is important for young children who are more vulnerable to chemicals.

So back to the question, in what ways are their organic baked goods different?


Bud of Joy's Organic 100% Wholemeal Bread (S$7.10) gives me a pleasant surprise! Not just because no white flour and no refined white sugar are used, it is because Pei Pei and Hao Hao who refused to eat wholemeal bread in the past, gave this thumbs up! Their Organic 100% Wholemeal Bread is very soft! 

The bread tastes even better with their Artisan Organic Almond Butter (S$15.50). The almond butter is fragrant, thick and rich! Almonds have many health benefits, for example, they protect us against diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

Other than bread, their Organic Banana Muffins (S$7.50 for pack of three) are also made of 100% wholemeal flour. 

Their Organic Orange Chiffon Cake (S$15.50) is fragrant, soft and fluffy. To my surprise, no baking powder and emulsifiers are used! In addition, they painstakingly press orange juice from organic oranges, instead of using artificial food flavouring. Their organic chiffon cakes are ideal to those who are looking for cakes with low sugar level, only 55 grams of sugar is used in one whole cake!

For me, I like their Organic Muesli (S$9), which is made from a variety of organic nuts and oats, and is sweetened with organic raw honey. It is crunchy and tasty. 

Having headache with what to prepare for your children's breakfast? You may wish to give Bud of Joy a try! Do visit their website to take a look. Not convenient to travel to MacPherson? They offer islandwide delivery too!

  2. Glad I found this article because I've been wanting to make my son some wholemeal cookies.He's a cookie monster and I'd rather make it since I'm into clean eating than buy him some.
