Let’s be honest, sometimes trying to get our grandkids to eat can be very tricky! 🙋
Here’s a few ideas that we have found can help the cause – and we hope they help your little munchkins to enjoy more healthy foods too.
❤️ Get them involved in the very first process of creative food making by having fun with them out in the garden. They can help to plant and water fruit, veg or herbs…or even flowers for the lunch or afternoon tea table. If you don’t have a suitable garden, perhaps you could take them shopping with you to pick out all the fun bits that will be going into their lunch or dinner.
❤️ Encourage them to be as creative as possible with their own ideas for lunch or dinner. As you can see from our cover image, Animal Sandwiches can be so much fun! All they need is some bread, nut or jam spreads and some banana and strawberry slices to create their own works of art.
❤️ Finally, get them into the kitchen with you to help make their wonderful creation. Be sure to capture their success and pride in a photo!
❤️ Sometimes you do need to add a little something sweet, but if the trade off is plenty of healthy food going into their tummies, then perhaps its worth it. Take a look at this yummy healthy recipe thats guaranteed to bring smiles and hugs 🌝
Fun Fruit Kebabs with Maple Cinnamon Yoghurt Dip
Pierce fruit onto small skewers alternating fruit (we selected strawberries, banana and peaches but feel free to replace these with any fruit slice that stays on the skewer).
Yogurt dip: In a bowl, whisk together one cup of plain greek yogurt, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup and half a teaspoon of cinnamon. Serve with fruit kebabs.
