Tefal Cook4Me is a pressure cooker with many added features that make it so easy and quick to use, especially for busy families or those who don’t have so much confidence in the kitchen as it gives you so much extra guidance. A few weeks ago, I went along to a Tefal event to try out the Cook4Me for myself, and now have one to use at home too.
Want to Give Your Kids A Treat Everyday? Try These 5 Easy-to-Make Recipes
Parents often feel that a three-meal system is perfectly sufficient for their kids – but the truth is that snacks contribute a great deal to overall growth and development too. You ought to know – snacks almost bring in 15% of the total calories your kids need on a daily basis. Here’s the catch, just about any snack won’t cut it, you must choose wisely.
Your kids spend a lot of energy with their games and activities, plus they still have an immature digestive system that can’t go on without eating for long. So snacks are a perfect bait to keep their tummies filled every now and then – whether they like it or not.
Being a parent is hard and getting your kids to eat healthy is harder. We’ve compiled a list that contains recipes kids will love. You don’t need to look anywhere else.
Here’s your list of healthy homemade snacks for kids:
Who doesn’t love the occasional sweet treat to satisfy their sweet tooth? Children are notorious for loving anything that’s loaded with sugar. Usually, it means they’re reaching for a candy bar or something else that’s bound to give them a sugar rush. As a mother, wouldn’t it be nice if you could give your children something that is healthy as well as tasty? Well, we have just the thing. This recipe for Walnut & Pecan Balls has all the right ingredients. Walnuts are a superfood, packed with omega-3 fats, copper, manganese, and much more. Pecan nuts are equally nutritious and contain plenty of fiber and other essential fats. When combined, these nuts enhance the nutritional value of any meal.
There are some of us out there who really enjoy cooking. At weekends they’ll go all out and construct a magnificent roast dinner with all the trimmings, on the morning of Shrove Tuesday they’re immediately whipping up the pancake batter, and love nothing more than throwing together an improvised chilli or curry on the fly.
But during the week it can be hard to love cooking. Especially when you’ve been at work all day and the kids are saying “I’m hungry” as soon as you get to the school gate. What you need is something you can prepare quickly and easily and still feel like you’re feeding your children nutritious food that will help them grow and feed a passion for healthy eating.
Here are four simple and tasty weekday dinners that you can even get your kids to help out with:
Earlier this week, I shared the yummy Gluten Free O-Jacks Snack Bar Recipe and now to end Coeliac Awareness Week, I have another tasty gluten free recipe to share, thanks to Nature’s Path. This Mesa Sunrise Crumbly Shorties recipe makes 12 biscuits, and uses Nature’s Path gluten free cereal as a main ingredient.
We were sent some packs of the different Nature’s Path gluten free cereals to try out recently and have been really impressed with this brand. With previous gluten free products I’ve tried, the taste has been a little hit and miss, but Nature’s Path cereals all taste very good and were a hit with the whole family.
This week is Coeliac Awareness Week – aimed at improving diagnosis and raising awareness of Coeliac symptoms. Coeliac is a lifelong autoimmune diseased caused by a reaction to gluten which affects 1 in a 100 people.
Nature’s Path is a Canadian family firm, who are gluten-free and organic specialist, offering a wide selection of gluten-free cereals, granolas and granola bars. Thanks to Nature’s Path, I have this yummy gluten free snack bar recipe to share with you today.
The recipe yields 15 bars, and they would be great as a breakfast, or as a snack at any time of the day.
