Preparing food for kids that they actually want to eat is often a challenge. Making sure it’s healthy food is even trickier! I’m on the lookout for ways to reduce the amount of sugar (fructose) my kids eat. This sugar free Pikelets recipe is a healthier alternative to a family favourite. Really easy, and quick to make, Pikelets can be served up for brunch, afternoon tea, or as a yummy lunchbox snack.
This year I’m easing my kids off sugar. With school about to go back it means each day I need to prepare a whole stack of healthy sugar free lunchbox fillers, and after school snacks. Fussy kids, and a lack of time, will make this a challenge, so I need to be super organised. To save time I plan to tackle after school snacks and lunchbox fillers in one go.
Banana smoothies are great for using up over-ripe bananas that no one wants to eat! My Thermomix Banana Smoothie with Blueberries is a favourite in our house and it is a regular after school treat.
Incorporating juicing into your diet is a great way to look after your health and wellbeing. Juices and smoothies are easy, quick to make and great for people short on time. Green juice recipes, in particular, are nutrient-packed. Green leafy vegetables and fruit, such as kale, spinach, kiwi fruit and cucumber, contain a high concentration of phytonutrients, vitamins and fibre. A green juice is a health boost in a glass!
