As seen in the One Handed Cooks magazine – our summer issue is full of lovely, healthy, Christmas ideas for the kids. Grab your copy from Coles or all good Newsagents.

Christmas is fast approaching, you can feel the excitement in the air. I have some amazing memories when it comes to the lead up to Christmas and some of those memories involve all the fun Christmas themed food we used to eat. There are hundreds of delicious sweet delights doing the rounds, but not everything for kids needs to involve sugar. These little santa hats are our healthy version, and we think they look, and taste, just as good.

Do you have any other ideas for healthy Christmas snacks for kids? Join the One Handed Cooks Facebook page and post a pic for everyone to see.

Nutrition Note:  It’s not often you find tasty christmas treats for the kids that are rich in health promoting antioxidants, vitamin C and many other nutrients.

      You’re welcome :) I guess the only problem could be the yoghurt sliding off over time? They are pretty quick to make though so you could do all the prep and just whip them out last minute. Enjoy x

          Of course you could use chocolate, but yoghurt makes them a really healthy alternative :)
