We are excited to announce our new packaging will start to appear on shelf from August 2018. This transition to new packaging will occur over a number of months. During this time there will be a mix of current and new packaging on shelf.

There are no major changes to these products, in some instances there is a small name change or slight recipe improvement, see below for the full details.

Products purchased via the website will be delivered to customers in our old packaging until the end of October. From November, products ordered from the website will be delivered in the new packaging.

Dietitian’s Favourite Healthy Treat Recipes

susie-burrell-favourite-healthy-treat-recipes

Who doesn’t enjoy a treat every now and again? However, the thing about treats for kids is that they are often treats we would offer an adult. When we give children a large chocolate bar or an ice-cream these are often too big for little bodies.

If you want to give your child a treat every so often, homemade is best. I’ve pulled together some healthy options below.

Chocolate dipped fruits

Everyone loves chocolate! An easy way to enjoy a small amount is to dip a small nutrient-rich piece of fruit into melted chocolate. This is a simple way to get the kids involved and half a banana or a couple of strawberries dipped in chocolate is a tasty portion controlled treat.

Frozen yoghurt cups

Who needs calorie-rich ice-cream when you can freeze healthy yoghurt in an ice-block holder? If you want to be particularly creative you can add some extra fruit or choc bits to the yoghurt, which will increase the sweetness.

See my Frozen Yoghurt Cups recipe here.

Mini Banana Muffins with yoghurt topping

Homemade treats, like Mini Banana Muffins, are much healthier for little ones than commercial cakes and slices. When making muffins, there is the option to use fruit puree, wholemeal flour and olive oil — making it a healthy fibre-rich treat that little ones will love.

See my Mini Banana Muffins recipe here.

Fruit breads

Fruit bread is another great option which can be easily made healthy with plenty of fruit, wholemeal flour and minimal amounts of added sugar.

See my Banana Bread recipe here.

Bliss Balls

A mix of dates, nut spread and a little coconut can turn a fruit snack into a tasty treat! Especially if a little cacao is added to give the mixture a chocolate taste. Bliss Balls are so easy and recipes can be tweaked and mixed up to suit your little one’s taste.

I’ve created two Bliss Ball recipes for Bellamy’s Organic, see below:

Honey or Maple Syrup Popcorn

Kids over the age of five love popcorn! You can sweeten it with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup and a few minutes in the oven to make it crunchy. However, be careful as it is a choking risk for small children.

Cheesy Vegetable Chips

Vegetable Chips are super quick to whip up! Extremely versatile, you can use any combination of vegetables including carrots, zucchini and cheese. The inclusion of blended oats in my recipe adds a good dose of fibre and gives that extra nutty flavour that kids love! Serve with Greek yoghurt or hummus.

See my Cheesy Vegetable Chips recipe here.

Apple Berry Crumble

Apple Berry Crumble is a delicious and nutritious snack — the perfect treat option for kids. Containing a mix of fruit, almond meal and oats — Apple Berry Crumble can be whipped up in under 20 minutes. Once cooked you can easily blend and mash until you reach the right consistency for your little one.

See my Apple Berry Crumble recipe here.

Pumpkin Scones

My Pumpkin Scones are scones with a twist! These yummy treats combine mashed pumpkin, milk, egg and flour to make a delicious treat for your baby. They can be served with Bellamy’s Organic Peach and Apple puree for an organic option with no preservatives, artificial flavours or colours.
