The child is having a birthday, maybe there will be a birthday party where you have to cook lots of kids? Instead of Viennese sausages, pizza or fast food, it may sometimes be something healthy. Healthy does not always have to be bland and barren in the taste. Instead of pumping the kids with sugar and fat, you can also offer them healthy alternatives. This has two advantages: The children are not so turned on and leicher to keep in check. Also, you do not have to have a bad conscience when it comes to calorie balance.
Healthy cooking tips for children's birthday
Kids like it colorful. Vegetables are colorful. This is great and should be exploited. Vegetable Chicken Skewers taste good for every kid: You can use red and yellow peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini and whatever else you can get into the hands of vegetables.
Wash chicken, season and cut into bite-sized bites. Place 2-3 pieces of vegetables and 1 chicken piece alternately on a skewer. You can fry the skewers in the pan or grill on an electric grill (if the mama grills, then that has something).
Homemade, fresh bread tastes to every child. Try spicy options like a nut bread, a bread with oregano or herbs from Provence or even a tomato bread. The selection of fresh bread in different colors and flavors is certainly more interesting for children than fries with mayonnaise.
Who does not want to miss the dipping at the children's birthday, makes the potato wedges with a spicy Paprika Japanade. Boil young potatoes with shell in salted water for about 10-15 minutes, let cool briefly and quarter them. Rub with a marinade of olive oil, paprika, salt, pepper and fresh herbs (for example from the freezer), leave to stand for about 2-3 hours and then bake in the oven on a baking sheet lined with baking paper at about 200 ° C (convection: 175-180 ° C) crispy. Serve with a lean sour cream dip or a barbecue sauce (low in calories).
There is always room for dessert, so of course it should not fail. How about a homemade crunchy dessert? For this forest fruits or apricots and pineapple (who wants red and yellow) like a jam and boil with a little gelling sugar (ratio 1: 3) prepare. However, take more fruit than intended, so that the fruit pulp remains rather fluid.
Give the fruit pulp, alternately yellow and red, in preserving jars or wide juice glasses, such as a two-finger thick layer of fruit. Then follow a two-finger thick layer of yogurt. For the crunchy effect comes then a layer of crunchy cereal or crispy flakes (best to use sweetened with honey or raw cane sugar products).
So you continue to layer until the glass is full. The last layer should be yogurt. Then a blob of fruit juice and a few chocolate chips (bittersweet) and it's done: a homemade and very pretty dessert. No one will complain.
