Healthy Easter treats for your kids

Easter weekend can easily mean days on end of sugar highs, but we have some recipes that your kids will love, while staying healthy

There’s nothing wrong with a treat every now and then and these fun recipes will be great to make with your kids in the kitchen.

Treat 1: rainbow fruit skewers

When making these, think of all the colours of the rainbow, from purple blue berries to grapes to green grapes and kiwi slices, to orange melon, pineapple and strawberries. Simply take thin skewers and create rainbows of fruit skewers and serve them up on a platter for kids to grab. They will love the bright colours.

Treat 2: Frozen yoghurt lollies

This is a super-easy snack that gives the joy of ice cream and all the health benefits of yoghurt. Take an ice lolly maker and pour yoghurt into the cavities with some fresh fruit (like sliced strawberries). Freeze overnight and serve.

Treat 3: Chocolate chickpea bark

Preheat your oven to 200 degrees celsius. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Add a tin’s worth of drained, rinsed and dried chickpeas to the tray and spray with coconut oil or preferred oil. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes or until crunchy. Remove and allow to cool on the tray.

In a microwave safe bowl, add dark chocolate chips and coconut oil. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir then microwave again, until melted (you can also melt down a dark slab of high-quality chocolate – about 70-80%). In a large bowl, combine roasted chickpeas and dark chocolate then pour onto a lined baking tray and add to the freezer to set for 20-30 minutes.  Break apart and enjoy!
