Cheesy Cauliflower Dippers

We found this delicious recipe on the Super Healthy Kids website. This is a great way to make a crunchy snack out of a cauliflower, which you can use to dunk into a dip of your choice (for example a warm marinara sauce).

Aside from one step in the middle which should not be done by children (squeezing the hot water out of the cooked cauliflowers), the rest of the recipe they can help with. There are very helpful step-by-step picture instructions which you can follow as you go along.

This is a great little alternative to the classic breadstick to dip in sauces for an after school snack. You can also make slight changes to the recipe if you like, such as using other cheese rather than mozzarella.




You can find the recipe here.

Frozen Banana Crunch Popsicles This is a fun alternative to an ice lolly, with a portion of fruit shoehorned in. We found it on Baking Bites and there are clear instructions there on how to make it. Because the banana is frozen and has a sweetened crunchy coating it feels more of a treat. We have also seen versions using crushed up Special K type cereals - especially good are the ones with the berries as you get little flakes of chewy red in the coating. You can use a pes...

Celery Stalk Rose Prints This is a lovely idea I saw on Maureen Cracknell's Homemade site. It's a cute thing to do next time you have a recipe which needs a whole head of celery in one go and therefore you cut off the stump rather than peeling individual stalks, or you can do the same with a head of crunchy lettuce. So next time you have one of those recipes, get your paints out and let your kids make some pretty art or some greetings cards. The original is h...

Egg Herb Garden This is a fun way to grow a small herb garden, which would make a sweet gift from a child to a cook in their family. The infographic below shows you all the steps you need to know, the main thing is to take the top off carefully so you may want to help children with this or take the top off before they get started. Large plants will obviously need transplanting - this one features a tomato which would need potting on. But chives, basil, thyme, parsley,...
