Fun and Healthy Christmas Food for Kids (and Big Kids!)

Posted by on Dec 15, 2012 in Christmas, Special Occasions | 6 comments

I have been collecting some cute Christmas ideas from around the net for weeks now. Seriously clever ideas!

I find that if kids have something a bit fun and special to eat, even though it’s healthy, they are not so worried about eating junk. Would you agree?

 

Frosty the SnowmanFrosty the Snowman from Creative Food. Use cheese, carrot, cucumber, capsicum and peppercorns! Too easy and fun for the kids to do.

 

ce49f8647bc2fbb385d0b0647ee09b4cFrosty Cheese Ball from Babble. My top tip is to use the cream cheese that is not super low-fat. Take a look at the ingredients list and you will see the ones with more fat have no artificial additives and fillers.

Snowmen on a Stick from Family Fun. My tips are to make sure you put some lemon juice on the banana to stop them going brown and use currants instead of choc chips!

DSCN6965 Christmas Bauble Crackers from the clever Ebony at Neat to Eat. Check out her new cookbook – so many clever ideas!

santa-hat-browniesSanta Hat Brownies from Cooking Panda. My top tips would be to use your favourite healthy brownie recipe like this one from Quirky Cooking. Use whipped coconut cream or fresh organic whipped cream (with no additives or fillers).

SnowmanWatermelon Snowman from What About Watermelon. Okay, a little more work required, but how stunning!

 

IMG_3277-santa-300x225Santa Pancakes from Glitter Mommies. Use a healthy pancake recipe like this one (without the spinach!). Use whipped coconut cream or organic cream, bananas, blueberries and strawberries or raspberries.

86201780338156298_NgRHQonN_cRudolph Pancakes from Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons. Use a healthy pancake recipe, whipped coconut cream or organic cream, raspberries, blueberries and organic, free range bacon!

 

244179611018102704_Gmj3Q2Z3_cStrawberry Santas from What’s Cookin. I would use cream cheese for these, so they hold their shape. Add a little honey or maple syrup. These have mini choc chip eyes, but you could use blueberries.

I am definitely making some of these ideas for Christmas – particularly the pancakes for Christmas brekky!

What about you? Will you make any of them? Have you got any other ideas or links for fun Christmas food?
