kitchen helper.

December 9, 2012

piper has recently become keen to help in the kitchen where and whenever she can. our apple peeler has proved the best tool for this type of help. bonus being that she gets a slinky to devour post labour. it's her favourite snack {apples have always been, this just made them royal}. some other treats she is loving...

:: ants on a log: celery, almond butter and craisins
:: red capsicum sliced into logs and made into a fire pit
:: cucumber wheels- they roll well if cut right
:: nut mix {cashews, hazelnuts, macadamias, and pecans} served with a 4 pocket muffin tin so they can be sorted and enjoyed
:: fruit toast with butter and blueberry jam- centre cut out with cookie cutters- tada: puzzle pieces
:: roobois tea with milk and honey
:: yogurt with homemade maple granola
:: banana peeled and served with a kiddie knife= success in cutting skills
:: tofu cut into cubes= brilliant building blocks
:: plain yogurt drizzled with maple syrup

meals are not as 'playful' but snacktime is meant to be fun. 
do you have other inspiring ideas for toddler snacks and meals?

    His snacks are quite similar but at the moment he is going crazy for fruit sorbet..his favourite mixed frozen berries blitzed in the processor till smooth and creamy.

  12. How cute! And what a great idea to use the apple peeler and get a 'treat!' And here I was letting the boys help me bake cookies and letting them taste the sugar (so it wasn't 'bad!'). Wish I had your idea first! ;)
