When you have kids and you work from home as a mum, you should make attempt at baking your kids snacks. By doing that, you know what goes in and it’s Nutritional value to your kids and the family.
Most times those commercialized snacks can be dangerous to our health with this reasons below.
▪Environment: Unless you know the environment where the pastries are made, you will agree with me that it can POSE hazzard health risk to your kids and other members of your family. The water might be contaminated, there might be defecation hanging around where the pastries are made. Rotten Eggs and Veggies might be used, Etc.
▪Source: you won’t be certain if the flour, sugar, butter are in good condition and have life span for consumption. There are tendencies that expired goods will be used for making and baking those pastries we buy for our kids.
There’s always a start filled with failures but don’t give up and continue trying till you get it right or you enroll in a pastry class to learn how to make them.
