Chia and Fruit Bread from Bakers Delight- Giveaway!


It's a cold, wintery day. The rain is coming down outside. You are snug and warm indoors still in your pyjamas. A hot chocolate in hand and the smell of fruit toast slowly wafting out as it cooks in the toaster. 



It is one of the pleasures in life. Warm fruit toast with lashings of butter melting into it. Yummy!

The delicious people at Baker's Delight have come up with a new Chia and Fruit Loaf and Chia and Fruit buns. Chia has one of nature's highest sources of Omega-3 ALA. This bread is also packed full of dates and sultanas, as well as 100% wholemeal flour, lots of grains and no added sugar.



The buns are great as a snack. They are only small, but because of all the extras, they are also filling. Great as an after school snack for the kids. Drizzled with a bit of honey, they are just gorgeous. It is good to know that they are eating something that is healthy for them too.


What sort of snacks do you give your kiddies when they come home from school ravenously hungry on a cold day?

  2. As a restaurant owner, we are lucky to be able to prepare our meals for the kids. Scramble eggs with carrot for breakfast, tuna pasta for lunch and baked chicken drumsticks with sweet potato :) (email: taing8@hotmail.com)

  3. Hi Melanie!

    My favourite healthy snack to feed my toddler is mini cheese and veggie muffins!

    I grate the veggies (zucchini, onion, carrot, etc) really fine (so he can't pick them out!), add them to the cheese muffin mixture and voila! A healthy lunch box filler or afternoon snack :)

  11. I often make scones but a nutritious variety which offer a tasty alternative to sandwiches. I include cheese and grated zucchini in the mixture. Just stuff the scones with your usual fillings, and you have a healthy lunch with little effort.

    Corn pikelets are another one that will jazz up the lunch box. They are fibre rich, taste great, and give children the energy they need to power through the school day.

    My signature healthy kid recipe is Micro Tacos - just add sauce (sweet chilli works well) and a little cheese inside tacos and microwave for around 30 seconds and like magic you have crispy tacos with melted cheese and sauce and kids can't get enough of these. Quite frankly I got sick of making them but it's so easy even the kids can do it, giving mum a rest!!! ha, ha!!!

  20. My son is really fussy with food, but he loves when I make him fruit salad. He doesn't like meat or many vegetables, but luckily he loves kiwi fruit, strawberries, apple, banana, mandarin, pears and watermelon, so at least I can make him a pretty chunky fruit salad!
