Whether you’re hosting them or going to them, birthday parties are an important part of your tot’s life. To celebrate the momentous occasion we indulge our toddlers with colourful, candy coated treats. Here’s our alternative to common party snacks that are delightful to children and won’t compromise your toddler’s healthy diet.
Every party needs a platter of finger food for kids to nibble on. This grilled vegetable skewer dish is the perfect way to get even your most fussiest eater to eat their vegetables [Recipe here].
Presentation is as important as taste when it comes to enticing children to eat healthy. A rainbow fruit skewer platter is easy on the eye and easy to make. You can even make the dish a fun and educational experience and have the children prepare their own rainbow skewers [Recipe here].
