Fun and Healthy Christmas food for kids (and big kids)

 

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?

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

 

 

Grinch-Party-1r

♥ Grinch fruit kebabs. So, so easy but really fun and striking. You don’t even need the marshmallows!

 

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

 

ce49f8647bc2fbb385d0b0647ee09b4c♥ Frosty 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!

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

 

DIY Santa Hat Christmas Pizza

♥ Santa Hat Pizzas from Family Fresh Meals. Super cute and easy to make.

 

Christmas-Fruit-Candy-Cane_PM
♥ Banana and strawberries candy cane from Kitchen Fun with My 3 Sons. Doesn’t get much easier or healthier than this!

 

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

 

funky_reindeer♥ Rudolph Sandwich from Funky Lunch.  Use a healthy bread, cheese, black grapes or olives, cherry tomatoes and cucumber. You can even download the template here.

 

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

 

traditions4
♥ Santa 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.

♥ Elegant Christmas Tree pancakes from 5 Dollar Dinners.  So yummy – use a healthy pancake recipe, fresh strawberries or raspberries and starfruit (or carambola).

 

Rudolph-Pancakes-Breakfast_PM


♥ Rudolph 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!

 

Strawberry Santas    112412
♥ Strawberry 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!
