Feeding kids: It’s all I seem to do some days! I’m always looking for creative food ideas for kids, especially for afternoon tea. Here are some of my favourites. Have any great food ideas for kids? Leave them in the comments below (help me out here!).
1. Frozen Fruit Kebabs
Thread fruit on to a kebab stick and place in the freezer for about an hour (or longer). It’s about the healthest icecream I can think of!
Here are some combinations:
pineapple, apple and grapes
strawberries and blueberries
rockmelon, watermelon and grapes
green grapes, pawpaw and strawberry (traffic lights)
nectarine, pineapple and banana
2. Pizza Bread
Get the kids involved in making pizza bread. This is a great lunch idea too.
Step 1. Lay out ingredients. I used toast, tomato sauce, grated cheese, cherry tomatoes, cut up ham and heated up frozen vegetables.
Step 2. Allow child to add toppings.
Step 3. Grill for a few minutes.
I love my son’s sound effects as he adds the toppings. Made me laugh.
3. Instant Pudding and Fruit
Instant pudding is always a hit with my kids. Add fresh cut up fruit to the top.
Notes: The handy little bowls can be purchased from Coles.
4. Iced Biscuits
Not the most healthy option but it’s fun for a treat! For the biscuits I used my Cookie Dough Cookie recipe but plain biscuits like a milk arrowroot is ideal.
Icing: I use a thawed frozen strawberry to make the icing pink or a few blueberries for a bluish colour.
