School’s out! 6 easy recipes the kids are going to love

It’s the time of the year again: school holidays. This means getting creative with ways to keep the kids entertained and fed while they’re home. No need to come up with elaborate ways to keep lunch exciting, here are 6 quick snacks and light bites they’ll rave about.

Simple snacks

When the kids are feeling peckish, here’s what to serve:

1. Home-made chips

Three ingredients, no fancy equipment and guaranteed CRUNCH! These are the best chips you (and the kids) will ever have, plus they’re crispy and golden in just 10 minutes. homemade-chips

2. Marmite popcorn

Marmite is more than a sandwich spread, it adds umami to any dish, including snacks. You can get the kids involved by using microwave popcorn and asking them to pop the packet into the microwave while you prepare the Marmite drizzle.

There’s no need to order takeaways: arrange pizza bases or white sandwich thins, grated cheese and a variety of toppings, and let the kids create their own cheesy masterpieces.

5. Honey gems

This is the only time the kids can play with their food. These sticky popsicles can be served as a breakfast but let them have fun with toppings. Roll the frozen honey in crushed biscuits or make a sweet and salty version using salty crushed crisps.
