My Top 5 Healthy Snacks For Kids

My Top 5 Healthy Snacks For Kids

Are you on a health and fitness journey?

More than likely, that means the lives of your family, loved ones or friends may be feeling it a little too.
A health and fitness journey may require of you to sometimes say no, limit your choices at a restaurant or plan your meals in advance.
This healthy lifestyle directly transfers onto your little ones.

This one's for all you mamas taking it one day at a time and being an incredible influence on your kids. What we instil in our children from a young age stays with them for life.

You might get looks for serving something gluten-free, you may get second glances for making a 'healthy version' of a treat, you may even receive backlash for what you pack for lunch.
Whatever you do - remember why you started, and rather than dwell on the negative, spend your energy sharing knowledge and educating others.

Here are a few of my favourite kid-friendly recipes  - classics with a twist but equally as delicious.

Sausage Rolls

What you'll need:

  • 2 rye flat breads
  • 250g good quality chicken or steak
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon mixed/dried herbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup coriander, finely chopped

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Mince the meat in a food processor.
  3. Add in the onion and stir to combine.
  4. Knead the mixture with the herbs, coriander and egg in a bowl.
  5. Wrap your sausage rolls up and bake them in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until brown!

Muesli Bars - These are versatile because you can mix in whichever nuts, seeds, fruits and superfoods you like.

You can also freeze these to keep them fresh and ready to go when you need them.

Homemade Yoghurt Pops - Flavoured yoghurt is one of the biggest culprits of pretending to be 'healthy'.
I avoid the risk of purchasing a sugar laden yoghurt by going for a completely natural one and adding in my own fruit and sweetener.
You can't been a frozen yoghurt pop sweetened with honey!

Quinoa Popcorn Chicken 

What you'll need:

  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup stock (salt-reduced or homemade)
  • 500g chicken tenderloins
  • 3 tablespoons wholewheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

Method:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the quinoa and stock into a rice cooker and prepare according to your machine.
  3. Allow the quinoa to sit for five minutes before fluffing up with a fork and set aside to cool.
  4. Cut chicken into 2cm cubes.
  5. Combine flour and onion powder together in a bag, add chicken and shake to cover.
  6. Add chicken to beaten egg to cover, then transfer to quinoa.
  7. Roll chicken in quinoa and place on prepared baking tray.
  8. Bake for 15 minutes until cooked and the quinoa crust is crispy.

Pikelets - hands down, a favourite of the boys- and only 5 INGREDIENTS
This recipe is SO easy and you can serve it alongside anything.
You can make these pikelets savoury or turn it into a lunchbox treat with refined sugar-free jam.

I love the way I live now and I love the knowledge I have gained from this program especially dietary wise so I can give my kids the best start to life. The recipes, the workouts, the hints and tips... at no stage did I ever get bored or go off track.
