By request from several other parents I've put together this collection of my snacks recipes for children. I'm ever so grateful to be a 'home Mama' with time to prepare healthy wholesome food for my little 'un, as getting the right kind of goodness into them whilst their bodies and systems are developing is so important. I fully appreciate not everyone has time to cook and bake in-between full-time jobs and grocery runs and errands and social activities, etc. But you'll be pleased to know that most of these recipes were designed with time constraints in mind, and are really quick to whip up for the kids (or for yourself!)
A lot of the time there's not much difference between a snack for a child and one for adults... as long as ingredients are free from sugar, processed and refined ingredients (and also take into account choking risks for the very little ones). I try to shape them in fun ways, for example I bake miniature soda breads for my son whenever I bake a loaf for us. Things like salad/fruit skewers, falafels, potato salad, cheese bread twists, anything like that which looks fun and appetising will usually get the thumbs up! So here's a few ideas and recipes from me... all of which can be adapted to suit persoanl tastes, dietary requirements, or altered to be made vegan if wished.
