Strawberry and Lime Chia Puddings

I love using chia seeds in my children's diet because they are so versatile and pack a huge nutritional punch.

These gingerbread stars make a great Christmas addition to your child's lunch box, but in reality I like to pack them all year round! They're not too sweet, loaded with fibre and have a great gingerly taste with plenty of crunch.
