Natural gummy candy

You kids will go ga ga over these delicious and nutrient dense candies that can double as a Vitamin C supplement! The gelatin will slow down the absorption of the natural sugar in the juice, while being a wonderful protein sparer and super good for digestion.

Natural gummies are the perfect treat for what ails the whole family, and wonderful addition to your child’s lunch box too!

    Great idea. I can also think of hiding some herbal extracts in there. Gotta make these.

      Smart idea ….or herbal infusions instead of juice! I ran out of juice last night and used beet kvass…
