If you are reading this article, then you are looking for new and fresh ideas for what to buy or make for your kids these school holidays. As a mum, I am exactly the same. Kids get to the school holidays and the last thing that they want to eat, is what we put in their lunch box every day. My daughter doesn't want the same snacks, she doesn't want sandwiches and all she wants to eat are sugary snacks and potato chips - neither of which are in our house!

I have previously written an article called Top 15 Filling Snack Ideas For Kids which I still refer to each school holidays, and these ones below are more recipes to add to this list. Do you have an easy school holiday snack idea that your kids love? I would love to hear it! Please leave a comment at the top of this article and it will be shown down the bottom, for others to read. Scroll down for three tasty ideas from our family - hopefully, your kids love them too!


Banana & Peanut Butter Ice Cream

In a food processor, add 2 frozen bananas (broken up) and blitz to break them up. Add 1 Tablespoon of your favourite peanut butter, a squirt of honey and a tablespoon of milk and blend until smooth. Serve immediately.

Easy Honey & Oat Slice

Preheat oven to 180 degrees, fan forced. In a large bowl, combine 1 cup of rolled oats, 1 cup sultanas, 1/2 cup desiccated coconut, 1/2 cup self-raising flour and 1/2 cup raw sugar. In a small bowl, combine 125g margarine and 2 Tablespoons honey and microwave for 45 seconds, until the margarine has melted. Add the melted mixture to the bowl of dry ingredients, stir and pour into a lined rectangle slice tray. Press down firmly with the back of a fork. Bake for 15 minutes until golden.

Mum and Dad will love this too!


Taco Chicken Bites

Combine 500g chicken mince, 1 egg, 35g packet of mild taco seasoning (salt reduced) and 1/3 cup breadcrumbs in a bowl and mix together with your fingers. If it feels too wet, add extra breadcrumbs. Roll a tablespoon-size ball in your hands and then roll them in extra breadcrumbs. Add olive oil to a fry pan and cook until white in the centre and browned on the outside. Serve with dipping sauce on the side.
