Let’s take a look at some super easy ideas for healthy playdate lunches.
Avocado and hummus filled wraps
Wraps are always an easy and popular choice for playdates. Try filling them with avocado and hummus for the high levels of vitamins C and E in the avocado and the protein content of hummus. You can even add some shredded crispy iceberg lettuce for an extra bit of crunch.
Spread some tomato paste on mini flatbreads, sprinkle some grated cheese over the top and garnish with a basil leaf…what could be easier? You can also add some chopped capsicums for extra vitamins and texture.
Simply thread a variety of fruit cut to size onto skewers for an appealing yet healthy sweet treat. Try any combination of the following:
- Grapes, sliced lengthways
This salad will appeal to little ones thanks to its vibrant spectrum of colours and crunchy texture. The carbs in the rice will deliver plenty of energy to keep them going after feeding time too! This dish looks mouthwatering presented in a clear glass serving bowl that shows off all its colours.
- Combine the vegetable oil, salt, pepper, sugar and sesame oil in a bowl and whisk until the sugar dissolves.
- Add the mixture to the chilled brown rice in a large bowl. Gently stir and set the bowl aside.
- Steam the carrots and peas for up to 2 minutes, until just tender. Cool them by rinsing with ice-cold water then add them to the rice and stir gently to combine.
- Add the rest of the ingredients except the parsley and toss gently so that the vegetables are evenly distributed.
- Serve the salad well chilled and garnished with parsley.
