Healthy Recipes For Little Ones

One of the things that parents consume much time worrying about is creating and preparing healthful recipes for their children. While it can sometimes be cumbersome to always prepare healthful recipes, especially when you have little time or are in a hurry after work, there are many healthy recipes that you can create very simply, here are some of them.

Almost all kids love applesauce and applesauce is deceptively simple to prepare and very delicious. All that is required are 2 red apples, two teaspoons of sugar (brown sugar is fine), a few tablespoons of lemon and some cinnamon. Creating applesauce is easy, just put your two red apples in a food processor, throwing out the core first. Process the apples and once they become ground up into small pieces put them in a bowl; add your sugar, lemon juice and finally a few pinches of cinnamon. Voila, you have fresh and all natural apple sauce.

Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits
Here is a recipe that most everyone will love. Fruit and Yogurt Parfaits are very painless to prepare and you can make numerous types of parfaits just by choosing different kinds of fruits. For this recipe you can start with about 8 ounces of yogurt, some chopped up strawberries and some fresh granola. Just mix the yogurt and strawberries together and add the granola to the top. You can simply improvise with this recipe, mixing in any type of fruits you like. In addition to adding granola, you can choose to add your favorite cereal, nuts, a few drops of chocolate or a gummy bear or two. This recipe takes only a second to make and will put a smile on all your children’s faces.

Mashed Potatoes
Mashed potatoes are yummy, fun to eat, and easy to prepare. They are also very healthy. You just need potatoes, some fresh milk, and a little butter. One of the ways to spruce up your mashed potatoes for children is to add a little food coloring, especially for the holidays. For instance, many people during St. Patrick’s Day make green mashed potatoes. For Halloween, you can add orange food coloring, etc. While you can quickly spruce up mashed potatoes, this is one food that your kids will enjoy because it tastes great. It is important to note that while you can buy mashed potato flakes, it is always better to use fresh potatoes.

Cinnamon French Toast
Are you looking for a healthy breakfast option? French toast is it! You can prepare French Toast very easily, just take white bread, or almost any kind of bread and place it into a mixture of fresh milk and eggs that have been slightly beaten. Now cook it on a griddle with either a drop of butter or cooking spray and voila, you have French Toast. Instead of using high sugar syrups or fatty butter, choose instead to sprinkle delicious cinnamon. Many parents use fresh fruits as well, such as strawberries and raspberries to complete their creation.
