Need a healthy gift for your dad this Father’s Day?

Too often, the pleasure of Father’s Day gifts are short-lived. With the Healthy Treats hamper, you’re giving a gift that he can savour throughout his special day.

Healthy Treats hamper by DiabeticHampers.co.ukThe Healthy Treats gift hamper, designed by DiabeticHampers.co.uk, is brimming with low sugar, low GI sweet and savoury treats for the entire day.

Sound too good to be true? We thought we’d put it to the test. Here’s our idea for a Healthy Father’s Day Treat.

 

 

8.30am:

 

Surprise your dad with a red gift box of health treats

 

9am:

 

Prepare a hearty bowl of porridge made with low fat milk or water and serve with Organic English Breakfast Tea.  Add berries as a natural sweetener or 1-2 tablespoons of chopped pecans, walnuts, or almonds to add protein and healthy fat, which can help stabilize blood sugar.

 

10:30am:

 

For morning tea, choose from Apple Crisps and Luxury Mixed Nuts with Cornish Sea Salt

 

12:30pm:

 

Soup is the soul-soothing rain or shine and on his special day, your dad can choose from naturally sweet Carrot soup with a hint of coriander or a hearty medley of vegetables and pearl barley.

 

Add crunch with one or two Nairn oatcakes.

 

2.30pm : Popcorn. Simple.

 

5.30pm: Tantalise your dad’s taste buds with a passata and couscous dish. One of our favourite recipes is Moroccan Chickpea Stew (recipe here) Wash down with Posh Pop from Breckland Orchard.

 

10:30pm End of the day with a soothing Camomile Tea
   

Best thing of all, there are even more healthy treats in the hamper to enjoy the next day and the day after that.

You can find a complete listing of all the goodies in the Healthy Treat gift hamper and book delivery to his door today right here.

How customer feedback has changed DiabeticHampers.co.uk

Stunning view near Endrick Trading officesThis may have been Diane’s view on the way into work this morning, but our team know that the hampers we pack every day make a huge difference around the world.
How? Because you tell us online and on the phone, and we are very grateful you do
.
Listening to your feedback has enabled us to become more responsive and
better value. We’ve learned what you need, what you’d like and how we can improve.
Customer feedback has recently changed Diabetic Hampers in three key ways and we’d like you to take a look, if you’ve a moment:

Cheaper delivery costs

The food and drink in our hampers are chosen because they are low in sugar and low in GI, but also because they are fresh, healthy – sometimes a little naughty too – and they taste great.
Preserving these tastes and textures means a quick, reliable delivery service is essential. Fortunately, as a result of our continued growth, we’ve been able to renegotiate our delivery costs in the UK and Europe and passed these savings back to you. Take a look.

More top quality no-added sugar and gourmet healthy foods

Only the tastiest food and drink makes it into our gift hampers. They must appeal to at least one of the six senses – eyes, ears, smell, taste, touch and
…joy (each hamper is a gift after all!)
That’s why we look to the producers who develop their foods in close partnership with nutritionists.
Take Cavalier Belgian Chocolatier who has pioneered the use of natural sweetener stevia in their chocolate. Their milk, dark and white chocolates are award-winning and tasty too.

It’s easier to talk to someone

We love a good blether, but some times during our busiest times, we’ve not been able to pick up the telephone as quickly as we would have liked. This year we have added new dedicated phone lines so talking to us is much easier, even during our busiest times
.
Our new (multi-line) telephone number is +44 (01360) 504253
SO keep in touch!

Delicious Diabetic-Friendly Chocolate Gift Ideas

Being diagnosed with diabetes doesn’t mean you must avoid chocolate.

You just need to be a little more careful about the type and portion size you eat to soothe your sweet-tooth cravings.

With this in mind, our diabetic hampers team has taken great care to choose a selection of diabetic-friendly chocolates that taste delicious – and have none of those potential side effects.

 

Chocolate sweetened with natural Stevia contains no sugar

Since 2012, it has been possible to made chocolate using a natural sweetener called Stevia as a replacement to sugar. Stevia comes from the herb stevia rebaudiana and you can even grow it in in your own garden. It is widely used as a sweetener around the world and it is safe for diabetics, according to Diabetics UK and additional studies.

For instance, the effect of steviol glycosides, isolated from Stevia rebaudiana, in Type 1 and Type 2 diabetics was evaluated in a study published in 2008 in the “Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology” journal. The results showed that post-treatment blood glucose levels were not significantly different from baseline measurements in the groups that were given stevia. Additionally, stevia was well tolerated by the subjects and had no side effects. (Taken from Can Diabetics Eat Stevia? By Amber Olson)

There are no effects on taste either. No sugar chocolate with natural Stevia tastes as smooth and delicious as traditional chocolate
We’ve sourced diabetic-friendly white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate since everyone has their favourite!
