    No new ideas as such but hommus and veggie sticks (carrots, snow peas, cuc) are always munched down and some rice cracker bickies to dip in too.

    Little traffic light skewers (on toothpicks) - so cherry tom, cheese and cuc and the toothpick.

    Also I have discovered that if you cut crust off bread and roll it flat with a rolling pin and roll it up fussy kids will eat this non sandwich sandwich haha - my fussy ones fav filling in this is cream cheese spread, grated carrot and ham - no way would she eat this in a traditional sandwich *eyeroll*

    Baby Bel cheeses - the best high protein/calcium and no preservatives or additives cheese I've found in the supermarkets - plus apparently the wax coating helps them stay fresh out of the fridge for a few hours ( if you belong to costco I get a 22 pack for $14 which is only .65 cents per cheese)

    I made these yesterday - oat/banana cookies - I'm sure someone on here posted the recipe - they don't look overly fancy but DS inhaled them, took 60 seconds to make !

    1 packet instant oats/porridge ( I use Marco organic oats)
    1 medium banana mashed well
    Sprinkle of desicated coconut flakes

    Mix together and place cookie size dollops on baking tray and bake in 180 oven for 15 minutes- that's it!
    ( I sprinkled over some chia seeds before putting in oven )

    I have been making these black bean brownies for DS1 to take to school as a treat (replace walnuts with dried cranberries) but they keep getting eaten up too quickly at home!

    My kids love nut free bliss balls for a school snack. Just google them, there's a hundred recipes...basically pick one and adjust ingredients to suit your child. If the mixture can stick together then it will work No baking required, and I just leave my 9 and 7 year old in charge of rolling them if I'm time poor. To cover in coconut I get the macro organics shredded coconut from Woolworths as it's sulphite free, and then just blend it so it becomes desiccated coconut


    A great store bought snack (not cheap, but if you're just having a time poor week it works) is at Woolies in the fruit and veg section they have date and coconut rolls that are literally dates and coconut. My three kids won't touch a date on it's own, but they all like the date and coconut rolls (and dates in cooking is fine for them too...it gives them the sweetness they are after).

    This is a thermomix recipe, but could be made without a thermomix with some adjustments (like bought flours, and not making your own milk). I never leave the batter to soak and have used various combinations of flours and it all works.

    Yesterday I trialled salmon patties to see if my kids would eat them and they gobbled them all up.

    It was
    one clove of garlic, crushed.
    One carrot, grated.
    240gm of tinned red salmon.
    one egg (or egg replacer of choice)


    Combine all ingredients and blend until smooth. Roll in to balls, coat in covering of your choice (bread crumbs/wheat germ/corn flake crumbs) and cook in pan approx 5 minutes on each side.

    I wish I could be like you food mummies! Cooking, baking and food is just so not my thing and I wish it was. These threads are so valuable to me for inspiration. Thank you. So wish I could be a foodie mum and love being in the kitchen. I'll fake it til I make it lol.
