I really dislike reading posts and articles filled with “recipes that your kids will ADORE” only to find that they call for ingredients such as truffle oil, anchovies and Brussels sprouts! Whilst I do agree that all the yummy stuff, like garlic, herbs and chilli, shouldn’t be reserved until our children turn 21, I think if we’re realistic, we all know very well what kid’s will actually love and what they won’t! With that in mind, here are 5 quick and healthy snacks for kids that I can safely say an overwhelming majority will heart dot com. And the best bit? They’re really simple to knock together!

SNACK ONE: ZUCCHINI CHIPS – BAKED NOT FRIED!
I love this recipe because not only can you make this with a billion and one different veges (think eggplant, carrot, sweet potato etc.) but they are genuinely delicious, super healthy and work well as an afternoon snack on their own, or alternatively served alongside a piece of meat, chicken or fish at dinner time.
(makes 24 chips)
3 large zucchinis
1 egg, whisked
3/4 cup panko crumbs (or bread crumbs)
3/4 cup Parmesan, grated
1) Preheat oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
2) Cut each zucchini in half and then each half into 4 fingers.
