More Cake Anyone?!

See the recipe section of this blog for this delicious summer berry polenta cake...perfect for all people big and small. Kids will love the colour and sweet, fruity flavour...adults will also love the fact that its 100% wheat free, gluten free, dairy free and sugar free - guilt free indulgence!

Get children involved with making this cake, they will love to be a part of the process.

Fruity Pancakes

Want to start the weekend with a fun breakfast for all the family? Buckwheat pancakes are perfect for those with wheat or gluten intolerance's. You can use 100% buckwheat flour or even better soak buckwheat wholegrain overnight and simply blend with some rice milk and use as a great pancake batter - 100% wholegrain with more long lasting energy compared to refined wheat flour.

A simple topping of strawberries marinated in rice syrup and a tiny pinch of sea salt (helps to bring out natural sweetness of the fruit) works a treat as well as Carobella spread (found in most health food shops)


Mmm Carrot Cake!

Who said sugar free, dairy free, wheat and gluten free can't be sweet,  indulgent and deliciously creamy? This is a great, moist carrot cake with a zingy, lemon cream topping...perfect alternative for iced cakes and a great way for children to enjoy a healthier treat . To add more fun simply use a shaped cake mold and decorate the cake with fruit, nuts or a smiley face :)

Vegetable Skewers

Vegetables skewers are always a fun way of presenting vegetables to  children*, being perfect for barbecues, parties as well as adding some fun to normal mealtimes. Vegetables can be roasted in the pan, on the barbecue or the oven and served with some delicious homemade barbecue sauce - guaranteed to go down a treat!

BBQ Sauce
Mix 1 heaped tablespoon of cornflour with 1/2 a cup of water in a saucepan. Add a generous teaspoon of Mugi or Genmai Miso, 1 tablespoon of juice from grated ginger and 1 tablespoon of apple juice concentrate. Mix well and bring to the boil and simmer allowing the sauce to thicken (continue stirring well throughout to minimise any lumps).

This works well with vegetables and fish...and not just for the little ones!

Enjoy :-)

*provided that they are old enough not to harm themselves with the sticks!
