16 October - Low Sugar, Low Carb Snacks...
Hi there. It's Sumari from EasyHealthyKids.com, and this week my kids enjoyed new healthy snack recipes (low sugar, low carb), and we discovered new fun activities.
The family: Fred is a headstrong 3 year old toddler boy, and Sarah is my sweet 10 month old baby girl.
Fred's favorite food of the week
Fred and Sarah both really enjoyed these caramel almond bliss balls (no bake and low carb). They are soft to eat and easy to make. For a nut free version, use ground sunflower seeds instead of the almond flour. These bliss balls have a very distinct caramel flavor that tastes divine.
Sarah's favorite food of the week
I made this Berry Chia Seed Pudding for myself from a recipe I found in a Keto Diet App, and thought I'd try it out on Sarah since it's so smooth to eat.
I didn't give her the blueberries (I ate them myself!). She loved this chia seed pudding and I will give it to her more often, as well as eating it for breakfast myself.
It's low carb and full of healthy fats to aid growth in children.
Fred's activity of the week
We are focusing on science activities at the moment, and I'm searching for activities that are easy to do and don't require lots of equipment or ingredients.
This Magic Milk Toddler Science Experiment did just that. Although it didn't work out exactly, Fred enjoyed playing with the milky water in his water play table. Maybe you can try this experiment and see if it works for you (let me know!).
Sarah's activity of the week
Sarah loves to use her hands, so I played this pulling-tape-from-a-box activity with her.
I did it this afternoon, and Fred helped me put the tape on the box...but then he started pulling it off again himself. However Sarah did enjoy the box and was fascinated by the tape. I'll try this activity with her again when her brother is not at home.
Do you have any great recipes or fun activities that you want to share? Let me know by replying to this email.
Talk to you next week.
P.S. If you try any of these activities or recipes, let me know! I'd love to hear how you found them.
