How to replace sweets in the child's diet?


We associate sweets with them as childhood. Grandmother baking a cake, grandfather pulling out a candy from his pocket were the times. Now grandmothers often buy ready-made cakes, pastries and candies in the store instead of baking, the variety of which can lead to astonishment.

We try to introduce products with the least amount of sugar, but sometimes we get lost in this thicket. So let's look at replacements:
