The Best (and only) Dairy & Soya Free Christmas Treats for Kids

This column is not a long one, and yet one I’ve spent so much time on. I’ve been painfully scouring the net and looking through ingredients’ lists to find SOMETHING for the dairy and soya free kids out there. My conclusion is not a surprising one, but it’s still depressing: there is so little for them in terms of off-the-shelf chocolate and treats they can enjoy. (Can you tell I’m a HUGE chocolate lover?!)

There is of course, the argument that kids shouldn’t be eating chocolate, and should be happy with healthier alternatives, and to all those thinking that – Bah Humbug to you, Scrooge! It’s CHRISTMAS. While you’re busy gorging on the contents of the Quality Street tin or emptying your third Cadbury’s Selection box, spare a thought for the ones who aren’t able to enjoy much in the way of chocolate this Christmas.

There are SOME dairy and soya free options, and a big shout-out to Moo Free who have surpassed everyone else with their range of treats and advent calendars. As a mum with a dairy and soya free child, THANK YOU.

I hope this feature can be a work in progress, perhaps companies will be selling more in the way of dairy and soya free Christmas treats as the weeks go by. If you have suggestions, please comment and we’ll add them in as we go along.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
