Banana Mug Cake

A mug cake is a dessert that is exactly what it sounds like – a cake made in a cup! It’s made using only a few simple ingredients and tools, including a mug, measuring cups, and a whisk. The best part is that it can be made quickly in the microwave, taking less than two minutes. Have your child measure out the ingredients, add them into a mug, and then whisk everything together!

Homemade No Sugar Added Granola

Making granola with your child can be fun! Let your child measure and pour the ingredients into a bowl and stir everything together. Then, have them help spread the mixture onto a baking sheet. Don’t forget to chop or grind any nuts to ensure they’re safe for younger children. Once it’s baked, break the granola into bite-sized pieces. You can even toss them into a food processor to give you granola “sprinkles” that are easier to chew.

Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, with one cup providing almost 150% of the recommended daily intake. Why not try making a strawberry shake with your child to enjoy this nutritious fruit in a delicious way?

Fruit Roll-ups

If you’re looking for a fun activity that allows your kid to do craft as they help with food preparation, then making homemade fruit roll-ups could be just what you need. Have your little ones help with spreading out the pureed fruit mixture, cutting the fruit leather into strips, then roll them up for snacking.
