WANT TO BE CREATIVE? 3 RECIPES FOR PLAYFUL KIDS

 

Do you have a fussy little eater who struggles at meal times? Even when you try a little harder to encourage your child to eat vegetables or fruit, and it’s not really working. Now you’ve run out of tricks to get them interested in food.

We all understand that meal times can be both tricky and messy for children – especially toddlers. So why not let them be creative and have fun preparing their food? Last month we learned 7 TODDLER STEPS TO HEALTHY EATING to give you a healthy food guideline. This month we have 3 recipes that are fun to make and will tempt them to eat healthy.
 

 

DRAGONFLY CORN THINS™ SANDWICH

Dragonfly Sandwich with CORN THINS

Ingredients

2 CORN THINS™ slices
1 baby dill pickle
2 thin carrot matchsticks
¼ cup low fat cream cheese
2 tablespoons vanilla yogurt
½ teaspoon ground tumeric
¼ teaspoon garlic powder
Pinch of salt
2 slices honey-baked turkey breast
4 thin orange slices
4 thin red apple slices
Clean scissors

Instructions

1.    Flap your arms 4 times. Cut each CORN THINS™ slice in half for the wings. Slice one-third of the pickle off the top and set aside for the dragonfly's head. The rest of the pickle will be its tail.

2.    Use a toothpick to make two small holes on the top of the pickle head. Slide one small carrot stick into each of the holes for the antennae.

3.    Buzz like a bug as you combine the cream cheese, yoghurt, tumeric, garlic and salt in a bowl. Spread it over the top your CORN THINS™ slices

4.    Roll up a turkey slice tightly. Place the turkey roll-up in the centre of a plate. Place the pickle head at one end and the rest of the pickle at the other.

5.    Place two CORN THINS™ slice halves on each side of the turkey body. Stack the sliced oranges and apples on the wings, making sure all tips are pointing in. Run around like you're a dragonfly whooshing through the air before landing at your table for a scrumptious and healthy sandwich

Ask them which body part they will eat first.
