This post has been a long time coming. I usually have 3 or 4 recipes ready to go but I have had a number of flops recently and have become a little over it!
First there was my lemony asparagus pasta that I make often but turned to mush on this occasion. Then I attempted a 3 ingredient healthy cookie – they were horrible. Next a healthy toddler friendly hot chocolate. It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t great either.
I thought I had broken my cooking curse with a delicious pumpkin and turmeric tahina number that tasted great but the photos were terrible. You couldn’t quite tell if my chunks of pumpkin were in fact pumpkin or salmon – bazaar but true! I’m putting that one down to bad lighting.
So I decided to make something so simple I couldn’t stuff it up. No cooking required, healthy as can be and something that the kids will love. Fruit skewers. Use what ever fruit is in season and go ahead and sneak a few things between the fruit that your little one may like. Think capsicum, carrot, tomatoes etc. xx
Fruit Skewers with coconut and chia
- yellow capsicum
- chia seeds
- Chop all the fruit into bite sized pieces and thread on to the skewers. Sprinkle with chia seeds and coconut. Serve.
Fantastic idea. My kiddies would love these and I love the idea of sneaking in a few veggies.
Thanks so much Marie, it is a great way to get kids to eating more raw veggies. xx
Such beautiful colours, I’m making these for myself….
Thanks Heidi, I totally agree! I love them for myself as well. x
