#Nutrition tip -From one Mum to another I can tell you we all want what’s best for our little ones, because a healthy child is a happy child. To give them the greatest start in life it is critical to ensure they are getting everything they need from their diet. Easier said that done right!
The screwed up nose, food thrown on the floor and the all mighty tantrums at the sight of a tomato! I hear you, and I’m here to help.
*Children thrive on routine. Try keeping main meals and snack times at roughly the same time each day. Children have a strong need for rituals and for what feels familiar whether it is a bedtime routine, meal time routine or using a favourite plate. Some form of daily routine may provide a picky, fussy eater with predictability and security.
Morning Tea -
Boiled egg & piece of fruit
Banana & tahini sandwich
Toothpicks with cherry tomato, cucumber & cube of cheese
Chia seed pudding & berries
¼ cup chia seeds
1 cup coconut milk.
1/2 cup organic raspberries (fresh or frozen)
In a glass bowl or large jar, add chia seeds & coconut milk.
Mix well, place in the fridge then leave to soak overnight or for at least 2 hours.
Serve with fruit (stewed apple or fresh berries)
· I find if you mix well, let it sit for 5 mins & mix again it will ensure all seeds are mixed in.
· You can double the recipe and store then in jars in the fridge, will last for up to a week.
· Chia pudding is a lovely concoction of nourishing fats & protein.
