Tried and tasted

Trad vs healthy: we chal­lenge these Scouts to pick their favourite crisps It’s back-to-school time again, which means morn­ings – bliss­fully stress-free for six weeks – now, suddenly, are not. The lunch­box chore is one of the most an­noy­ing, but just as ir­ri­tat­ing is the end-of-day emp­ty­ing of them – of all the whole­some stuff you’ve op­ti­misti­cally packed, which hasn’t been touched and has been mer­rily fes­ter­ing away in a sweaty Tup­per­ware pri­son for hours. So which snacks will kids ac­tu­ally eat? In blind faith, we handed the new­est crop of healthy crisps (and some clas­sics, too) to this week’s game tasters: the 18th St Al­bans (Douth­waite) Cubs group.
