3 Quick & Healthy Kiddie Meal Ideas for Parents in a Hurry!
Guest Blog by Katy of www.healthylittlethings.co.uk
I’ve been feeling a tad time poor recently so am experimenting with a few recipes for healthy meals in a hurry. Here are my favourites: in the spirit of saving you time, I’ll keep this brief….. Breakfast-Wholemeal bagel with peanut butter, Chia and banana
Throw out the sugar laden cereals & say hello to peanut butter (protein, fibre, Vit. E & more) & banana (potassium & fibre rich). Toast your bagel, spread the peanut butter, sprinkle over some Chia seeds and top with banana. Lunch-Pitta Pizza
I love this super easy recipe from Dale Pinnock: take some wholemeal pitta; spread with organic tomato puree, then the kids can add what they want! We used cherry tomatoes, sliced black olives (anti-oxidant + anti-inflammatory nutrient rich), ground garlic & crumbled some leftover feta we had in the fridge-you might like to hide some spinach in the puree! Stick the pittas under the grill for about 5 minutes. Dinner-Healthy Chicken Nuggets & Chips (longer cooking time but pretty quick to prep!)
Cut 1lb of chicken into strips; dip each strip in a beaten egg and coat in almond meal mix. Cook at 180* for 16- 18 mins (turn once). For quick chips, buy pre-cubed sweet potato “chips” -great roasted in olive oil!
The best meal recipe I’ve found is from Paleo Mom
½ cup almond meal, ½ teaspoon of salt (for older children), ¾ teaspoon of Paprika, ¼ teaspoon of ground coriander and a ¼ teaspoon of ground cumin.
Happy cooking! Katy xxx
