Healthy & Quick Family Friendly Snack Recipes


I am always on the lookout for easy and healthy snack recipes that not only I will love, but also my kiddos, and as most moms know, they can sometimes be very hard to find.

Here are 5 of my tried, tested and most loved recipes, that tick all the boxes.

  1. They are super easy to make and take less than 10 minutes to assemble.

  2. They are healthy and nutrient dense, filled with good amounts of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals our bodies need on a daily basis.

  3. Kids Approved!!! All 5 of these recipes have been approved by my kids. I get asked (more like, begged) to make these on a weekly basis.

So, here they are, lovelies. I have decided to post them as images so you can easily save them directly to your phone. No need to copy and paste wording or links. You are welcome, gorgeous mama! ;-)

When your husband works away

When your husband works away

My hubby is a farmer in the USA and he works abroad for 9 months at a time. He only comes home once a year from December till April. This is the 6th year of him working abroad.  As you can guess, maintaining a household and looking after our 2 kids by myself here in South Africa, can sometimes be super challenging, but I am glad to say that I have found my groove and that our relationship has grown a lot these past 6 years. I would love to share some valuable lessons I have learned on this journey so far. I dedicate this post to all the strong mamas and wives of husbands who work away. x
