Ahh Christmas, how we love thee. Yes, it may be a time for running around like a headless chicken buying sprouts and stocking fillers until the cows come home, but it’s also a time for family, food, good company and (if we are VERY lucky) a bit of a rest.
Fancy getting your kids in the mood for Yule? These delish Chrimbo treats will get them – and you – ready for the big day. We’ve tried to include some healthy, sugar-free options that even younger babies will able to enjoy, alongside the obligatory gooey, chocolatey Christmas treats.
#1 Carrot stars
These healthy carrot biscuits are super simple, made with just four ingredients – carrots, oat flour, cheese and eggs, and they’re delicious to boot. The recipe is from a mum who decided to create a healthy Christmas snack for every day in the advent calendar – what a legend!
#2 Mulled apple juice
This fab warming drink is a great introduction to the tastes of Christmas. Packed with festive spices and honey, it’s a sweet, healthy treat the kids are sure to love. It’s also a good one if you’re pregnant and you’re missing your annual mulled wine fix.
#3 Mini hot dog wreath
All we can say is – wow, what a crowd pleaser This one is a perfect Christmas Eve treat for all the family, and your little helpers will love getting involved in making the little sausage rolls.
#4 Strawberry Santas
These little strawberry Santas are almost too cute to eat, but we’re sure that your kids won’t be able to resist. Just dollop some whipped cream on a chopped strawberry and add chocolate chips for eyes – and you’re done!
#5 Chocolate marshmallow reindeers
These little reindeer lollies are simply delicious. Chocolate dipped marshmallows with pretzel antlers? What’s not to like?
#6 Christmas pudding crispy cakes
These are a good Christmas pudding alternative for Christmas day for fussy eaters. Chocolate crispy cakes are always a winner.
#7 Frozen banana penguins
This is a winter winner, in our opinion. Even kids who say they don’t like bananas will be tucking into these chocolate-covered sensations in no time.
