Lunchbox Ideas: Sweet

That little somethin’-somethin’ (that used to be two Arnott’s biscuits for me, or a Yogo if I was with my dad) has grown up a bit in lunchboxes these days, I find. I’m still a nostalgic idiot, so my kids get a balance of all sorts of things (including sugar) but I do tend to keep packed lunches pretty tame…

Lunchbox Ideas: Savoury

I know, it’s that time of year again. Where we have to come up with ideas for packing kids’ lunchboxes. With stuff they’ll actually eat. I can’t really complain, my girls have been at a place all last year that provided lunch and it was a huge relief not to have to worry about it. On the flip side, neither…

Kid Food: Snacks

Snack time, y’all! Where I eat everything + cheese, and the kids lick a banana and run off to play. Sigh. Fruit kebabs. They wanted me to take the fruit straight off. Then one asked for just a banana on a stick. Homemade apple pie with a Miffy cheese. Nope and nope. We had a bit of apple action, but…

Kid food: Snacks

Writing these posts always make me hungry. Sultanas, yogurt drops, goji berries, cheerios, chocolate-covered sultanas (for something different!) and blueberries, back from when they were in season and weren’t $9.99 a punnet (my hot tip? Get blueberries from Aldi. Great quality, lowest price I’ve seen!) Raspberry and coconut muffins Boiled egg and slices of sweet potato. I popped them in…

Hidden Veggie Pizza Scrolls

I won’t bore you any more today with tales of my non-eating children (although the eldest is getting a bit more adventurous), and while I serve up veggies in their natural form every day, I also sneak in the ones they’re not eating. Balance is everything, haha. I’ve been using hidden veggie sauce on pasta, in sandwiches, on pizza, basically…

Kid food: Lunch

A throwback picture from our old house – the deck was so warm outside! I daren’t step foot outside just yet. Too damn cold. Anyway, we had egg sandwiches (Bigs had peanut butter because she was going through “the phase”), and fruit. My best egg sandwich of all time rules here. Greek yogurt with homemade strawberry preserves. Quorn nuggets, bread…

Kid Food: Mini Yogurt Pancakes

Ever since the kids were born, I’ve found it hard to make pancake-sized pancakes. The girls were so little, and had tiny mouths, it seemed more useful to make them more like silver-dollar pancakes than anything else. Smaller than pikelets even (although every time I make them, most people are like “what’s a pikelet?”). I really enjoy tiny food anyway…
