back to school : ideas for healthy snacks

Going back to school means not only a new start in learning and socialising, but also taking care of your children's healthy diet. Healthy snacks are essential to ensure energy and concentration during the long school day.

A variety of spices can help, not only to brighten the taste but also to have a positive effect on health.

Here are 7 creative ideas for healthy snacks packed with nutrients and flavoured with spices.

When choosing healthy snacks for our children, we are often faced with the challenge of providing them with tasty and nutritious options. Using a variety of spices can add rich flavours to simple dishes and have a positive impact on digestion, the immune system and well-being.

In addition, many spices have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, which are particularly beneficial for children during their developmental phase.

Homemade yoghurt with honey and cinnamon:

Yoghurt is an excellent source of protein and honey brings a natural sweetness. Add a pinch of cinnamon, which not only improves the taste but also regulates blood sugar levels.

Oatmeal muffins: Make oatmeal muffins and add apple strudel spice. Children will love the taste of apple pie and caesar fritter in one.

Baked wholemeal bread with avocado and turmeric: Avocado is a rich source of healthy fats and turmeric is known for its anti-inflammatory and immune boosting properties. Together they make a great combination for a tasty sandwich.

Crispy chickpeas with cinnamon and paprika: Roasted chickpeas are a great snack. Sprinkle with cinnamon for a sweet note and paprika for spiciness.

Mini sandwiches with chicken and vegetables: Make mini sandwiches with chicken slices, cucumber and tomato slices and lettuce leaves. Add a little mayonnaise or mustard to taste. You can cut the sandwiches into fun shapes like stars or animals.

Fruit Skewers: Stack a variety of fruits such as strawberries, grapes, pineapple and melon on wooden skewers. Cut the fruit into smaller, bite-size pieces. Children will enjoy a colourful and sweet snack.

Vegetable rolls with tzatziki: Cut strips of cucumber, pepper, carrot and avocado and place them on a thin pita. Roll into rolls and serve with fresh tzatziki.

You can add spices to any of these snacks to add an extra dimension of flavour and beneficial properties. For example, a little cinnamon or vanilla can be added to yoghurt, or sprinkle some paprika on the vegetable sticks for a spicy touch. It is important to keep snacks tasty and appealing so that children are happy to eat their meal.

With creativity and a good choice of ingredients, you can make sure your children start each school day energised and ready for new challenges.
