A Star is Born

The idea for Supertreats was born a couple of years after the birth of my son. To try and alleviate the inevitable tiredness of being a new parent, I often reached for the usual suspects of tea, coffee and sweet comfort foods, and in particular chocolate.

But, of course, the stimulants found in these only gave me a temporary ‘high’ that quickly faded and left me feeling even worse afterwards. I’d get headaches, feel lethargic, foggy-headed, unable to concentrate and even feel somewhat depressed at times. And these symptoms would only subside when I’d had my next ‘fix’ of stimulants or refined sugar.

As my son grew, I felt passionately about protecting his little body and mind from the disrupting blood-sugar highs and lows caused by these so-called ‘treats’. I therefore started looking for something that would give both of us the same joy as chocolate but be truly healthy.

After failing to find anything suitable on the market, I decided to create my own range of treats using nothing but super nutritious ingredients. Months spent sourcing ingredients and perfecting recipes at home ended when I hit upon a winning formula using superfood carob. I named my creation Supertreats because I like to think of them as ‘superfood’ treats…and ‘super’ is just how they make you feel.

We should all cherish our natural energy and vitality and I’m really proud to have created a genuinely guilt-free treat that allows you to do just that. I hope you love them as much as my family and I do.
