Seeing as we are all still stuck at home with extra time on our hands, here is a recipe that is not only delicious but also nutritious and low fat with no added sugar. Homemade low fat granola is a great way to start your day and perfect for a mid day munch. With the kids learning from home, I tend to deliver mid-morning snacks to keep their attention focused on the virtual learning. (Sometimes I make it with some dark chocolate chunks to brighten the day – of course…) You can add goji berries, dried fruit, chia seeds or coconut. Whatever you have in the cupboard that can add some interest to your pandemic cooking!
This is a perfect party snack, and with Hallowe’en around the corner, we like the health kick and sticky sweetness. As with any small pieces, though, make sure your children are chewing and swallowing properly to avoid choking. Other than that, dig in! (and have some baby wipes nearby).
With all the cooking baking and eating that has been done in the last month, something quick, delicious and nutritious is a welcome notion. This is, hands down one of the easiest tastiest soups around and can easily be doubled. With its simple ingredients you can share with your little one.
