Fussy Mum Treats

Fussy Mum Treats

A big part of my motivation for cooking is to provide healthy food for my family. Now that I have children at school it’s important to me that they have a delicious, but also nutritious, snack in their lunchbox. I’ve been up and down the aisles in the supermarkets reading the labels and not much that I find there meets my standards. These pre-packaged items are either too high in sodium, sugar or saturated and trans fats. Many of these also contain preservatives, colours and ingredients I’ve never heard of. I guess you could call me a fussy mum. Below you will find a collection of recipes that I have designed to be suitable for a child’s snack. These are all nut free, as most schools have a nut-free policy these days. Most of them are also dairy-free or can be adapted to be dairy-free if there is a dietary need. These recipes have the added bonus of being quick and simple to whip up. The muffins can also be frozen for quick addition to a lunchbox.
