What age should I begin to introduce savoury snacks to my child?
The introduction of savoury snacks is a normal part of a child’s development process. But, what is the correct age to introduce savoury snacks into a child’s life?
The average child has their full set of 20 primary teeth by the age of three years old. Children under 3 years old do not have the teeth to be able to chew food properly and grind it in their mouth. It is important that children have their primary teeth before they begin to chew hard pieces of food as their windpipe or trachea is approximately the size of a drinking straw in diameter.
Care should be taken as roasted broad beans are small in size and require chewing. They are not recommended for children under 3 years of age

Do Happy Snacks support sustainable agriculture?
Chickpeas not only produce a valuable crop but at the same time also provide a natural organic method of breaking the disease cycle in other valuable food crops. This means less fungicide, less insecticide and a cleaner, greener environment.
Chickpeas are powerful nitrogen fixing legumes. Their deep root system plays an important role in stabilising soils and preventing erosion.
These clever little plants actually restore depleted soils. They may use little or no fertiliser while enhancing the fertility of the soil. They even have a natural insecticide in their leaves, which keep the bugs away.
