Founder and mum of two Rhian Allen says, 'As parents, it is our responsibility to initiate the relationship our children have with food and nutrition. Feeding your child can be daunting and stressful at the best of times, especially if you have fussy eaters.

'Our new cookbook provides parents with simple recipes which are delicious and nutritious for kids and parents alike – so no more separate meals!" said Rhian.

Each of the 68 recipes have been designed and cooked by The Healthy Mummy Nutritionist - Mandy dos Santos and taste tested by real kids. Using readily available ingredients from the local supermarket, each recipe can be cooked in around 30 minutes and have components where the kids can get involved, making meal-time enjoyable for all the family.

Mandy dos Santos, Nutritionist and Author of The Healthy Mummy Healthy Kids Cookbook says, 'It's so important to have a good understanding of what your child's daily dietary requirements are. Not only will a healthy and balanced diet ensure they grow and develop to their potential but it will also help with their sleep, cognitive function and boost their immunity."

Fish Fingers

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4

Fish fingers are very popular with children and an easy win at the dinner table. The problem with store‐bought fish fingers is they are often high in sodium and can contain up to 25 ingredients – in this homemade recipe, there are only 6. Fish is a good source of protein, which is important for growth, and is also a good source of omega 3 fatty acids, which are important for eye and brain development, and have anti‐inflammatory properties which are beneficial for immunity and heart health

 

Ingredients

1 egg
1⁄4 cup milk
400g white fish, cut into 2cm-thick chunks or strips
1⁄2 cup plain flour
2 cups breadcrumbs
Olive oil spray


Method

Preheat oven to 200°C. Whisk egg and milk together. Coat fish in flour, dip in the egg mixture, then roll in breadcrumbs. Lay on a lined baking tray and spray with oil. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden and cooked through.


 

Apple Bites

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Serves: 10

This tasty treat, like an apple pie sandwich, can be assembled by the kids as a fun party activity. The ingredients used to make it are lower in fat, sugar and salt than a traditional apple pie. 

 

Ingredients

2 apples
20 basic round biscuits
10 tbsp natural yoghurt
Honey
Cinnamon


Method

Preheat oven to 180°C. Peel and core apples, then cut into 5mm‐thick slices. Place on a lined baking tray and bake for 15 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes. Assemble bites by layering a biscuit, a slice of apple, a spoonful of yoghurt, a drizzle of honey, a shake of cinnamon and another biscuit on the top.
