3 Recipes for Healthy Yet Yummy Snacks


As every parent would know, it can be very difficult to make kids eat fruits and vegetables since most of them like to consume packaged foods that are not that nutritious. As kids need proper food when they are growing up, parents need to improvise ways through which healthier alternatives can be added to their diet as per their likes.

A great way to incorporate nutritious foods into your child’s diet is by giving them snacks that are both healthy and delicious at the same time. But most parents have a hard time coming up with recipes that not only produce healthy food, but are also according to their kids’ taste. This is why we have put together three recipes that are good for your kids, and contain ingredients that are high in nutrition.

  1. Healthy Pizza

You will need:

  • 100g of white flour
  • 100g of whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp. yeast
  • 125 ml water
  • 200g chopped tomatoes
  • A handful of cherry tomatoes
  • 1 courgette – thinly sliced
  • 25g mozzarella cheese – sliced
  • 1 tsp. capers in brine
  • 8 olives – chopped
  • 1 garlic clove – chopped
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil


Take both kinds of flour and mix them together; add yeast, and a pinch of salt to taste. You can use a food processor to make the dough, or you can knead it by hand if you don’t have one. Gradually add the water to the flour mixture till it resembles soft dough. Roll out the dough about the size of a dinner plate and spread on an oiled baking pan. Next spread over some chopped tomatoes, along with the cherry tomatoes and the sliced courgette. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top. Also, mix together capers, olives, and garlic, and spread on the pizza. Drizzle some olive on top of everything and leave to rise for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 240° C, and bake your pizza after proofing for 10-12 minutes, or until the dough is cooked through.

  1. Strawberry and oats breakfast

You will need:

  • 3 ½ cups of water
  • 1 cup oats
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • Pinch of salt
  • 4 cups of strawberries
  • ¼ cup milk


Take the 3½ cups of water, and bring them to a boil in a saucepan. Make a slit in the vanilla bean lengthwise, and add to the boiling water along with a cup of oats. Boil together for one minute. Turn off the heat, cover the pot, and leave it overnight.

Take half the strawberries and slice them into small pieces. Take the other half and puree them in a blender or a food processor. Take the oats that have been left over night and place them in a bowl. Top with the sliced strawberries and some strawberry puree. You can serve this with hot milk or cream, depending on what your kids prefer more.
