Awesome Food Ideas Kids Will Love!

Hi peeps!

Today's blog is dedicated to all the children in the world. May your hearts and lives be blessed and your tummies never go hungry. And may your food bring you awesome joy! And that's what we are going to do today. Here are foods that your kids will love. Why not share the ideas with other moms and dads too. Have a look at these cool ideas:

Rainbow Pasta

So easy to do:
Boil a few pots of water and chuck in some food colouring and voila!!! Rainbow pasta that kids will adore.



Pizza Flavoured Scrambled Eggs
50g shaved light leg ham, chopped - I like to use bacon too
1 medium tomato, deseeded, finely chopped
2 tablespoons reduced-fat grated pizza cheese - I like mozarella and white cheddar
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh oregano leaves
6 eggs
1/3 cup milk
Olive oil cooking spray
Toasted bread, to serve

Method:
Combine ham, tomato, cheese and oregano in a bowl. Lightly whisk eggs and milk together in a jug.
Spray a non-stick frying pan with oil. Heat over medium heat. Cook egg mixture for 1 minute or until edges just begin to set. Using a wooden spoon, push set egg towards centre of pan, tilting pan to let uncooked egg cover the base. Cook for 1 minute or until creamy curds begin to form. Fold through ham mixture. Serve with toasted bread.

Colourful Berries and Syrup on Yoghurt and Muesli
2 x 150g punnets mulberries
1 x 150g punnet blueberries
2 tbs icing sugar mixture
2 tbs fresh orange juice
1 x 500g container creamy premium- blend vanilla yoghurt
Muesli, to serve, if desired.

Method:
Combine half the mulberries and blueberries with the icing sugar mixture and orange juice in a saucepan over low heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until the mulberries soften. Remove from heat and set aside for 10 minutes to cool. Stir the remaining mulberries and blueberries into the mulberry syrup until combined.

Use a balloon whisk to whisk the yoghurt in a medium bowl until smooth and creamy. Spoon the yoghurt into a 1L (4-cup) capacity rectangular glass dish and smooth the surface.

Spoon the berries in syrup over the yoghurt and swirl with the spoon. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1 hour to chill.

Serve the berries in syrup on yoghurt with muesli, if desired.

And that's the way you can have some fun with your kids this weekend!
