Cornflake & Chia Lunch Box Cookies
Most kids love a classic cornflake cookie! I've taken this classic recipe and given it a boost in nutrition. These cookies are a great source of fibre, iron, B vitamins and have a nice little hit of Omega 3 fatty acids thanks to the chia seeds and they still taste like the classic cornflake cookie we all love!

Apple Cinnamon Crumble Muffins with Zucchini

Apple Cinnamon Crumble Muffins with Zucchini
These moorishly fluffy apple crumble muffins with zucchini will disappear so fast you'll wish you made a double batch! Home made baked goods are a great way to boost your child's intake of fruit, veggies and fibre. If your child is a little averse to "green bits" then I'd suggest peeling both the apple and the zucchini in this recipe. If they're happy with "bits" in their muffins, then leave the skin on for an extra boost in fibre and nutrition.

The Perfect Lunch Box Choc-Chip Cookie

By

The Perfect Lunch Box Choc-Chip Cookie
I don't like to "healthily" all my lunch box baking for the kids, as sometimes you just want something tastes delicious. That said I've added wholemeal flour and oats to bump up the fibre (particularly soluble fibre) content of these cookies. In my work as paediatric dietitian I see a lot of kids that don't get enough fibre in their diets. A big culprit is the over reliance on a lot of starchy pre-packaged snacks for kids that are low in fibre, combined with insufficient fruits and vegetables in their diet.
