When the kids get home from school, sport or pretty much anywhere really, where do they head? Straight for the fridge. We’ve got some easy snack ideas so that when they get into the kitchen, there’s something healthy to eat. Better still, they’re all recipes that you can get your little ones involved with.
- Make a snack station. On the weekend or when you’re preparing dinner, cut vegies like carrots, cucumbers and capsicum into sticks. Get the kids to tell you their favourites, or choose them when you’re shopping. Store in the fridge in an airtight container with their favourite dip and they’ll be ready to go! Hommus is always a family favourite, and has the added bonus of being high in protein.
- Healthy chocolate milk. We all know how important milk is for giving kids essential nutrients, but it’s not the most exciting thing to serve up. Fangks chocolate & strawberry milk mixes change that. They’re a 100% natural, sugar free alternative that are so yummy! They’re also allergy friendly, free from gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts and yeast.
- Spread rice cakes with light cream cheese or natural nut butter and top with berries or banana for a sweet treat that’s secretly healthy. The kids can customise them with their favourite toppings.
- Yoghurt bark. 3 ingredients. 5 minutes. The kids can make it. Sounds like your kind of recipe? Just mix 1 cup plain yoghurt with 2-4 tbsp strawberry Fangks powder (to taste) and ½ cup berries of your choice. Line a baking tray and pour the mixture evenly onto it. Freeze overnight, and when you’re ready to serve break it into pieces. Done!
- Plain popped popcorn is a great alternative to unhealthy chip packets or biscuits. As long as you don’t smother it in butter, salt or sugar it’s actually a healthy option – plus, the kids will think it’s a treat!
