Kids are growing fast and seem to be hungry all the time because they spend so much energy studying and playing. This is why it’s a good idea to keep healthy and filling snacks on hand. For this reason, we compiled a list of mini recipes you can serve your kids after school or on a weekend afternoon.
Everyone loves hummus especially kids! To end up with a nutritious snack in 10 minutes, spread a spoonful of California Hummus Tahina on toast slices. In a bowl, combine chopped tomatoes, chopped cucumbers, crumbled feta and chopped parsley. Toss ingredients to combine then add on top of hummus toasts. Your children will love this snack especially after coming home hungry from school!
Kids need energy in order for their body to grow. This said, you need to present them with nutritious snacks that are loaded with protein and fibers especially before study time. Brush slices of bruschetta bread with olive oil and bake them in a preheated oven at 180⁰C for 5 minutes. Top with California mashed fava beans and serve with a slight drizzle of olive oil. It’s one of the healthiest snacks and you can even serve it for breakfast!
If pizza is among your kids’ favorite meals, surprise them with a quick and easy cheat treat! Simply spread some ready-made pizza sauce on toasts, and then top with sliced bell pepper, cherry tomatoes and California Garden sweet corn. Sprinkle with shredded mozzarella cheese and bake for 8 minutes until the cheese melts. It tastes like the real thing, except the crust is different and it takes much less time than a regular pizza!
