It can be incredibly difficult to cook nutritious food for our kids – particularly meals they will actually eat. Even if they are brilliant eaters, finding the time and energy to keep things interesting in the kitchen is also a challenge. This Australian app is all about creating amazing food for kids, that’s simple, delicious and fun.
The Clean & Green Kids app is a great go-to for daily inspiration when cooking for kids, and it’s also a way to get them involved in the process. But what captured my imagination was the creativity. There are some really clever ways to make food fun for kids, and hopefully get even the fussiest of eaters to take a bite.
The app includes recipes that will work for all ages: there are first foods, main meals, desserts – and all are simple and look amazing!
The app aims to make the entire process enjoyable for children, so they can explore their food and hopefully find a love for it. The Clean & Green Kids app also encouraging using food that will help growing bodies flourish. So it advocates the use of organic ingredients, and fresh food.
There are a host of very cute recipes, like the Spelt Bear Cakes and Watermelon Cars, which are simple yet so appealing to children’s sense of fun. The app includes more than 90 recipes, and each is marked to indicate if it’s nut, dairy, gluten, meat, seafood and egg-free. There is also a really handy shopping list built into the app, which is great if you’re meal planning. Or if you want to use up what you have, you can pop in your ingredients and the app will bring up matching recipes.
The Clean & Green Kids app is available to download (iPhone and iPad only) for $3.79 at iTunes.
