Snacks in a flash!

Now the kids are back at school, it’s important that they are fuelled up with healthy lunch and snack choices to support their growth and concentration.

Try a few of these ideas:

  • Rice cakes topped with peanut butter or nut butter and sliced banana
  • Make an apple doughnut by slicing apple into rings, removing the centre with a cutter and decorating with cream cheese, sweetened ricotta or yoghurt, dried fruit and cinnamon
  • Dips and veggie sticks
  • Make your own popcorn!
  • Make some energy balls from dried dates, coconut, maple syrup, cocoa and seeds. Great for keeping in the fridge for a quick nutrient and energy dense snack on the run.
  • Smoothies made from frozen or fresh fruit, milk or plant based milk, yoghurt and honey.
  • Fruit and Oat muffins - try substituting half the flour for wholemeal flour to increase the fibre and use coconut sugar or maple syrup to sweeten for longer lasting energy. Muffins are a great way to use up fruit that is getting a bit beyond it’s best and a great snack for lunchboxes.
  • Yoghurt parfaits - layer yoghurt with berries, drizzle with honey and sprinkle with granola.
  • Make some wraps with cheese, chicken or ham, avocado and salad and cut into pin wheels. Secure with a small toothpick. More fun than eating a sandwich.
  • Fill a Serving Centre with a variety of different snacks to cater for different tastes - corn chips, homemade guacamole, salsa, baby cheeses, veggie sticks or pack it with different fruits and some Nutella swirled through yoghurt and take with you to the park after school.
