French Kids' Favorites

All hit, no miss!
It's back to school time so I thought we should focus on French kids' food favorites this week. Be sure to delight the kids in your life!
Our selection features breakfast classics Poulain Grand Arôme hot chocolate, Banania (the beloved mix of cocoa, cereals, honey, and banana), and Chocapic cereals, as well as lunch and dinner staples Panzani pasta, Ebly pre-cooked wheat, and Mousline mashed potato mix.
When it comes to afternoon snack, we offer plenty of popular options. My daughter's personal favorites are Oui Love It madeleines, BN sandwich cookies (whole cereals, no artificial coloring, no added preservatives, no hydrogenated fats), LU Barquette cookies, and Teisseire syrups, of course.

Want to spoil them a bit on a special day? Go with Pierrot Gourmand lollipops and gummies (made with all natural flavorings and colorings), Tagada candies, or Carambar chewy caramel sticks (not for little children though).
