To celebrate Smart Eating Week during February 11-17, Mayver’s has compiled its most popular, kid-approved healthy recipes.

 

Leading dietitian Susie Burrell says getting children to eat healthy (and enjoy it!) can be a challenge, however there are ways to make it easier.

 

It’s important to include kids in the kitchen to encourage healthy eating choices from a young age,” she says.

 

When kids are actively involved in something and given responsibility, they’re far more likely to stay interested and excited.

 

Parents attitudes towards food and cooking can also play a big role. Encouraging them and showing them how fun cooking can be helps build their enjoyment and curiosity.”

 

Susie’s mum hacks for picky eaters

  • Involve them in cooking and baking healthy treats. Ask them what they’d like to cook or who they’d like to cook for.

  • Have a fun activity looking at all the different types of fruit and veggies and hold your own taste test.

  • Pack delicious and healthy on-the-go snacks to minimise the temptation and requests for fast food. Mayver’s Goodness to Go Peanut Butter pots are handy, filling and perfect for eating in the car and while out and about.

 

Mayver’s top kid-friendly healthy recipes

  • Satay Chicken Jacket Potatoes

  • Peanut Banana Popsicles

  • Banana Nut Bites

Satay Chicken Jacket Potato



Serves: 2

Ingredients

2 large sweet potatoes

1 tablespoon coconut oil

400g chicken mince

2 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 teaspoon ginger

2 tablespoon tamari

4 tablespoon Mayver’s Dark Roasted Peanut Butter or Tahini

To serve:

2 spring onions, thinly sliced

1 chilli, thinly sliced (optional)

Micro herbs to garnish

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C and line a baking tray. Cook the potatoes whole, for 60 minutes or until tender and soft when cut with a knife.

  2. When there is 20 minutes to go, start making the chicken satay.

  3. Heat the coconut oil in a fry pan and brown the chicken mince. Add the garlic, ginger, tamari and peanut butter or tahini and mix to combine. Allow to simmer on low heat for 10 minutes. If your mince is getting a little bit dry, add a splash of chicken stock to help keep the moisture in.

  4. Cut the sweet potato in half and add half the satay to each potato. Garnish each with half the spring onion, half the chilli and half the micro herbs.
