Gingerbread Chew

Low-Sugar Ginger Chew Biscuits

28’s Home Nutrition Program (Stream: female, healthy weight maintenance)
These low-sugar biscuits don't snap or crunch…they chew!  And if being a tasty, healthy treat wasn't more than enough, these biscuits have other hidden health qualities thanks to a generous dose of ginger in each serve.
Ginger is a medicinal herb known as an antioxidant with natural anti-nausea qualities, so if you suffer from travel sickness make a batch of our ginger chew biscuits before your next trip; and if you're a mum-to-be, these can help relieve morning sickness too!
