Fun Family Snacks
With the warmer weather comes days out, picnics, and fun in the garden - for all the family. This means meal times become more fluid, and as we lose the standard family timetable of breakfast, lunch and dinner - we start to snack more.
So, this week, we've come up with some deliciously healthy, fun, family snacks, for you and your children to enjoy. Four family snacks that are easy to make and perfect for all to enjoy.
Not only do they make the perfect high protein snack, they also make a delicious family meal. Eggs are surprisingly portable, and a great addition to a picnic, as they are packed with protein, vitamins and minerals.
Try making an omelette filled with summer vegetables like courgettes and tomatoes - cut into quarters and wrap in foil - perfect served warm at a family picnic. And hard-boiled eggs are the easiest snack on the go!
Short on time? Then this is the answer. A simple snack and an easy way to increase your daily intake of vegetables.
To prepare simply wash and chop up some raw vegetables such as carrots, cucumber, bell peppers, radishes and tomatoes into bite-size pieces. Pop into a tupperware, and you've nailed healthy snacking for all the family in a matter of minutes!
Right now look out for fresh apricots, blackberries, honeydew melon, peaches, plums, raspberries, strawberries and watermelon. So refreshing and beats a fizzy drink any day!
Not only are they filling but they contain protein and healthy fats. Avoid any salted nuts and watch the portion size. You can use any combination to suit your own taste buds. Easy to prepare the night before or take your Jane Plan Mixed Nuts n Seeds!!
