During the summer holidays, it can be very hard to negotiate with kids and keep them having a regular and balanced diet. Even a simple trip to the beach can involve pleading for ice-creams and looking for nibbles, and that’s just us grown-ups!
So here are some great alternatives out there to sugar-laden foods, that both kids and grown-ups can enjoy without feeling guilty, and also without feeling denied either.
As an aside, making these can also be a great way to keep the kids entertained for a few hours.
I love these little frozen delights, and they will go down a treat if we get some of the same glorious weather we got this weekend.
Simply fill your ice-lolly molds with good quality diluted cordial and pop them in the freezer. Add in some berries to the molds too. A good way to get your kids to eat fruit and drink more water. Freshly squeezed orange juice works just as well.
How cute are these little fruit flowers? We definitely eat first with our eyes, and this is really visually appealing. Get the kids to help you make them – it will keep them occupied for an hour during the holidays.
These could not be easier! Simply blitz mango and coconut milk and freeze in ice pop molds for a simple and sugar-free ice pop that the whole family will love. You can also use frozen mango (I know that fresh mango isn’t so easy to get your hands on).
