Looking for ways to keep the kids entertained these school holidays AND feed their hungry bellies? Kill two birds using one stone with these fun and simple school holiday cooking ideas.
Fruit kebabs are fun for kids to both make and eat. Provide children with a wide variety of colourful fruits and they can use our kids safe knives to chop them up and thread them onto sticks. The perfect morning or afternoon snack!
Mini Veggie Pizzas
Together with your kids, make your own pizza dough or use wholemeal pita bread or slices of our organic bread as your pizza base. Smear with Global Organics tomato paste then sprinkle with your favourite toppings; chopped up veggies, cheese, basil…..whatever your kids like! Pop into the oven until the cheese is all melted and the base is crispy and brown.
Homemade Icy Poles
Kids LOVE icy poles! As most of us know those store brought ones are FULL of sugars, preservatives & colorants and are absolutely no good for our children. But it’s super quick and easy to make your own at home by blending up some fruit mixed with water and pouring into our Sinchies Reusable Pop Packs to freeze. Here’s some yummy combos to try:
Strawberries blueberries, chia seeds, 4 kales leaves and water
Banana, apples, cinnamon, chia seeds and water
Spinach, apple, cucumber, celery and coconut water.
Nothing says “home” like the smell of homemade sausage rolls cooking in the oven. The perfect bite sized snack for the kids and quite easy to freeze. Our kids loved mixing and grating the ingredients and leave eating them warm straight out of the oven.
