Diet & Nutrition • by Ryno Ellis • 16 April 2019
If you’re at a loss for ideas when it comes to making a quick and healthy between-meals snack for your kids, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

We’ve put together two easy-to-make healthy snacks for the little ones.

No-bake Peanut Butter Cups

Peanut butter is a great source of protein, healthy fats and energy. These delicious peanut butter cups will keep you kids fuller for longer and out of the kitchen until dinner is done.

Preparation time: 15-20 minutes
Makes approximately 24 cups

Ingredients:

1 cup oats
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 tablespoons honey
3 tablespoons crushed nuts (peanuts or cashews)

Directions:

Combine all the ingredients except the nuts into a mixing bowl.
Mix thoroughly.
Add the crushed nuts into the mixture.
Scoop about two teaspoons of mixture into each miniature muffin paper cup.
Place the cups into an air-tight container and refrigerate for about one to two hours.

Tuna Mayo Mini Wraps

These mini tuna wraps are filling enough to keep your kids’ tummies full, yet small enough to not spoil their appetite before dinner. Plus, they’re high in omega 3 fats and fibre – both very good for your kids.

Preparation time: 15-20 minutes
Makes approximately 2 mini wraps

Ingredients:

1 wholewheat wrap
1 small tin of tuna
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
1/2 avocado
Baby spinach leaves
4 slices cucumber
1/2 carrot sliced into thin long pieces

Directions:

In a mixing bowl, mix together the avocado, tuna and mayonnaise.
Lay down the wrap and place a few baby spinach leaves on top along with the cucumber and carrots.
Scoop the mixture on top and roll the wrap tightly.
Finally, cut the wrap into halves.
