Feeding our children good, nutritious, delicious and healthy meals every day is a big task for most mothers – almost like a work of art! Like a canvas eagerly awaiting the final touch of a brush stroke which reveals the mood and colour of your painting - desserts can be assumed to be the last but not the least meal for your little one. Here are some innovative ideas for healthy and delicious desserts for your child -
Child-friendly Pineapple Cake
This classic pineapple cake is rich in vitamins, especially vitamin C. Mix up all your ingredients - ¼ cup margarine, 1 can pineapple slices, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 jar strawberry slices, eggs, vegetable oil– and pop into the oven. Serve your cake with small scoops of vanilla ice cream topped with cherries. Every bite of this delicious cake will delight your child!
Butterscotch & Mango Delight
This eye-catching refreshing dessert contains sweet juicy mango and is great especially duringthe sizzling summer. For assembling this delicious dessert, layer the bottom of a flip flop jar with small scoops of butterscotch ice cream and whipped cream made with coconut milk. Next, layer with soft, sweet mango slices, and top with your child’s favourite nuts. Your children will love the mix of flavours and textures and keep coming back for more!
Greek Yogurt& Assorted Fruit Swirl
Serving your little ones fruit in an appealing way is something all mothers want – as fruit is packed with vitamins and antioxidants. Layer the yogurt and different fruits in an attractive way in a dessert glass. You could top this off with some healthy granola or nuts and honey. You can use apples, kiwi, bananas, oranges, mangos; berries are great – try blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, strawberries - as berries are a rich source of antioxidants, vitamin C, vitamin K, copper and fibre. Make it colourful and watch your little one lap it up!
Milkshakes with Chocolate S’mores
Milkshakes are packed with protein and energy! Try different flavours to suit your child’s tastes– choose from chocolate, vanilla, banana, mango, strawberry, etc. Using fresh fruit in your milkshake will help increase your child’s fruit intake as well! You could top up your milkshake with chopped fruit, roasted crushed nuts, a scoop of whipped cream, caramel sauce and last but not the least – chocolate s’mores. Your child will definitely be asking for some more!
