HEALTHY HOMEMADE SWEETS
Make your own quick, healthy candies, lollipops, chocolates, popsicles, and other crowd-pleasing treats at home.
Are your kids constantly begging you for sweets?
Do they pull at your sleeve in the store until a lollipop or chocolate egg lands in the shopping cart?
Do they plead they’ll do anything for just one small chocolate bar?
Do you bravely resist and then end up breaking down and buying them something anyway?
And when you don’t, do visitors stop by in the evening to surprise them with something?
And so, despite all our best efforts, we end up feeding our children sweets filled with refined white sugar, preservatives, hydrogenated fats, palm oil, additives, and flavor enhancers that disrupt their health and mood.

Our origin story
The idea for this book came from two moms who were on maternity leave. The first of those moms was me. When my Peťka was still tiny, I didn’t give her any sweets at all. Those were great times. When we went to the store, she never asked for anything because she had no idea what all those sugar-filled snacks in bright wrappers were. Unfortunately this wonderful “sugar-free” era had an end-date: everything changed when Santa visited Peťka’s kinder before Christmas, and she got to try store-bought candies, chocolates, lollipops, and cookies galore. Of course, they all tasted awesome.
I wasn’t sure what to do. I didn’t want to deny her all sweet treats, but how could I knowingly feed her additives, hydrogenated fats, palm oil, white refined sugar, preservatives, and other chemicals?
And then I figured it out.
I’d make sweets for our kids at home.
I contacted Katka Paulišinová, a brilliant certified child nutritionist, and the second mom of our story. Together we bought molds to make lollipops, candies, gummy worms, teddy bear cookies, and popsicles. Then we got hold of the best quality natural ingredients, including honey and unsweetened fruit juices. And we got to work.
Katka has created the 50 stunning and delicious treats you’ll find in this brand new book. There are easy-to-follow recipes for lollipops, candies, chocolates, pralines, popsicles, cakes, and other fun snacks, and all of them are healthy and chemical-free. These treats look and taste so good that if you put them in a box wrapped in colorful paper, everybody will think you bought them from a store. You can give these sweets to your kids with a clear conscience. Take some over to friends’ places, and you’ll score top points every time. Plus the fun you and your kids have preparing these recipes together will make for beautiful memories that last a lifetime.
