Last week, my son’s class had the kind of homework I love.
The kids had to find a healthy recipe and record themselves cooking. I’m pleased to say that my son chose a really simple recipe. (Not the least because we were in the middle of moving house and all of my kitchen was packed up at this stage!)

So what did he choose? A smoothie!.

My 8 year old has been a little picky with his vegetables lately, so I’ve been looking at different ways to serve them in an effort to make them a little more interesting for him. I found this vegetable fritter recipe which might just do the trick. I’m thinking of using these as an after school snack or as a side dish at meal times. You can try all sorts of different vegetables and add cheese or bacon if you want. I know my son will love these with a dipping sauce.

Yes, chicken nuggets. Much maligned and misunderstood. Home made nuggets aren’t so bad as an occasional treat for kids. Here is a different, “home-made” take on the popular kids’ meal choice. Once again, “home-made” , (real food), means you know exactly what goes into your family’s food. Great as an after school snack with dipping sauces or as a light meal . And they don’t have be served “brown style”, with chips. You could serve them with rice and vegetables or with a salad.

Kids don’t like courgette or zucchini? Have some leftovers in the fridge? Here is a great way to get the kids to eat more vegetables without even knowing it. It’s also a nice way to use up your leftovers. Courgettes are called zucchini back where I’m from. People tend to love them or hate them but they are a super vegetable when it comes to nutrition. They are low in calories, a source of folate, potassium, and vitamins A and C. See if your guests can guess the secret ingredient in this tea cake.

Someone asked me for a good home made muesli bar recipe this week and I think this one looks pretty good. Commercially produced muesli bars can be loaded with sugar and saturated or even hydrogenated fats and often don’t contain any natural fruit. Homemade muesli bars are a healthy snack you can put in your kid’s lunchboxes each day. You can be sure of the ingredients and you can add your own touches. Have a go at this recipe.

I’m fascinated by this recipe for mushroom muffins. Mushrooms are great. They are low in fat, low in calories and rich in vitamins and minerals such as B vitamins, selenium and potassium. This is a great way to increase your five a day. You could have them for breakfast or as a savoury snack
