For many families, snack time tends to be when we give in to the temptations of unhealthy store-bought foods to get us through the day, many of which can be extremely high in salt and sugar. However, with the right recipes and a bit of extra time in the kitchen, you can whip up enough snacks to keep you and your family fuelled and well fed! These healthy, nutrient-packed snack recipes are a huge hit with my family, and are perfect for your school-going children and as a finger food for your weaning baby. Take some time over the weekend to batch cook your snacks and store them in your Mummy Cooks portion pots to keep them lovely and fresh all week long!
You can find loads of the snack recipes below and even more in my Baby and Family Recipe Book!
