How many Mum’s out there have fussy eaters or Kids who are simply too ‘busy playing’ to eat or are just going through one of their “Oh I will only eat this for the next 6 weeks phase?” Well that’s my Little Gremlin. Fruit, cheese and the favourite….tomatoes are the flavour of the month. Which is fine, but I like to offer a bit of variety in the Kids diet….how can they eat the same thing day in day out and still love it? It boggles me!
It got me thinking, what can I make him that is nutritious, wholesome and tasty? A MUFFIN! What kid doesn’t eat muffins? So I had a look at what was in the fridge and whipped these savoury muffins up in less than 10 mins.
What you’ll need:
2 cups – self raising flour, sifted
80gms – melted butter, cooled
1 cup milk
½ cup continental parsley
1 cup – finely chopped spinach
1 spring onion
200gms – Feta cheese, I used Danish Feta
8 cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped
10 Kalamata olives, sliced
Sprinkle of pepper to taste
How to do it:
They’re great fresh out the oven (obviously once cooled slightly), or as a snack the next day, eaten cold or heated up. They’re a nice healthy snack the kids will enjoy and you know exactly what’s in them.
And remember these can be adapted to whatever suits your little ones tastes – or yours! Believe me you will be munching on them too!
