Oh this takes me back to childhood in Scotland. My mum would give us a spoon of malt extract in winter mornings before we went off to school. I loved it, just as well my mum put it up high in the cupboard or I would have been in to the jar with a spoon.
Take a look at the health benefits of malt in the article, this is the good nutrition booster kids need in the winter months. Perhaps before going off to school especially the fussy kids that don’t finish their breakfast, it will give them some nutrition each day.
