Keep hunger at bay with these fun and tasty healthy snack #recipes for kids and babies.
Baked bean microwave nachos
Turn pantry staple baked beans into delicious nachos in minutes. Once drained, the beans have the texture of traditional Mexican refried beans. And hold on to that drained tomato-flavoured liquid! With a touch of smoky spice and lime, it balances perfectly to become a sauce to drizzle over the top of your nachos.
You HAVE to try this fairy bread fondue hack
We took some Malt O’Milk biscuits, dunked them into the melted white chocolate fondue and then dunked into a glass of 100s and 1000s to coat. Voila! The ultimate fairy bread-style treat.
Microwave 3-minute nachos
This is all cooked in just three minutes and is surely the world's fastest nachos. Many things may go soggy in the microwave, but corn chips stay super crisp. Microwave for one minute to melt the cheese, or up to three minutes for more golden patches. Drained cottage cheese adds a creamy texture that represents queso fresco, a fresh Mexican cheese.
50 rice bubble treats you have to try
Cereal is trending with Aussie bakers right now. Not only is it because it’s an affordable ingredient that kids love but also because it offers a quick and easy shortcut to a sweet treat. One of our absolute favourite cereals to cheat-bake with is rice bubbles – stir them through melted Mars bar for the ultimate no-bake slice or add dried fruit and honey to make the perfect lunchbox bars. You can even use them to make show-stopping cakes!
Milo fairy bread
In this sweet snack, two Aussie icons collide - and we’re almost embarrassed that we never thought of this before. Yes, we know there are a few very clever Aussies who enjoyed Milo sandwiches as a kid. But this is no sandwich. THIS is Milo fairy bread.
