We’re big fans of cooking activities with children, especially considering they cover 2 of the 4 key pillars we focus on at Kids Club. Namely, Child-Led Learning & Healthy Nutrition.
Getting kids to get eat and consume all their essential nutrients can be tough. At our centres, we find even the fussiest eaters are more likely to eat when they have a sense of group involvement in preparing, sharing and ofcourse eating!
Cooking quick recipes with the little one is a great activity as it not only gives children a sense of involvement and purpose but it allows makes for great quality time.
In this post we’ve hand picked a ‘Weet-bix Slice’ recipe as it’s quick and easy to do and has plenty of opportunity for the little ones to get involved.
Not to mention, it’s also a (relatively) healthy recipe with Weet-bix as the key ingredient. Weet-bix are a fantastic source of fibre, iron, folate and is also low in sugar.
Weet-bix also makes for a filing meal with plenty of healthy carbohydrates to fuel kids with energy. More benefits of Weet-bix here.
This will no doubt be a messy endeavour but that’s where the learning happens Every little master chef starts somewhere!
