5 steps to raising healthier kids
Written on the 8 September 2018 by Janet Culpitt
My aunt was my inspiration for healthy cooking and living healthy. I was fortunate to spend a lot of time with her growing up. She had her own vegetable garden and cooked everything from scratch.
A child's parents, or those they spend the most time with, play a huge role in the quality of their health and lifestyle. I'm grateful my Polish aunt became my inspiration for what I do now. Lay the right foundations for your kids, and that will reflect in their health and food choices as they get older. Here are my top 5 ways to help nourish your kids, and have fun in the process!
1. Plan for healthy meals
2. Make nutrition fun
3. Detox your kitchen
4. Be a role model
5. Reward kids with a fun day out, not junk food
Ingredients (makes 12 balls)
Mix through until the mixture looks like crumbs and dates have mixed through the oats.
Remove the mixture and place into a large bowl.
Add the nut butter and mix through until combined. Add more water if needed to mix into a dough.
Scoop out 12 portions using a small ice cream scoop.
Roll into balls and roll in chopped nuts, oats, granola or coconut.
Store in the fridge for optimum freshness until needed for up to 7 days.
