Sweetcorn Bites the Healthy Snack

| February 18, 2012

If you’re looking for a healthy snack that’s nutritious for all the family, you’ll find Sweetcorn Bites fit the bill.

We’ve really enjoyed snacking on Sweetcorn Bites, thanks to Barfoots Farm. Versatile and easy to cook, we also ate the sweetcorn bites as a side dish with grilled fish and tomato salsa.

Healthy and naturally sweet, sweetcorn is high in carbohydrates and provides a range of nutrients and fibre.

Each packet contains eight cob bites which can be cooked in the microwave, steamed or boiled. My favourite way to enjoy Sweetcorn Bites is to steam them until tender. No butter is required as they are sweet enough just to pick up and bite into.

Sweetcorn Bites are the initiative of Barfoots Farm in West Sussex. Their philosophy is to grow the tastiest, juiciest and freshest veg. Barfoots place an emphasis on sustainability, aiming to reduce waste, reuse and recycle whenever possible. This focus is taken across their farms in the UK and their global farming network, with ethical trading initiatives in place.

Barfoots Farm have have earned the recognition of the LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) logo on all their veg. They have also started to produce biogas from their veg waste products, for use as renewable heat and power, as well as irrigable water and natural fertiliser.

Sweetcorn Bites are available from Ocado and selected stores at Tesco, Waitrose and Co-op. To find out more about Sweetcorn Bites and Barfoots Farm visit Sweetcorn Bites.
