WeetBix and Milo Energy Balls

Here at Nudie Rudie Lunch Box we love a recipe that incorporates WeetBix. Why? Because it's not only a great source of fibre, which many kids don't get enough of, but it's also fortified with Iron, another key nutrient kids struggle with. 

We've doubled down on the iron in this recipe and used Milo for flavour which is also fortified with iron, making these little energy balls a lunch box super star. Not to mention they're delicious!! I'm certain these will be a winner with your kids. 



  • 5 WeetBix biscuits 
  • ¼ cup desiccated coconut 
  • ¼ cup Milo powder (plus extra for coating - note the milo coating is likely to go a bit sticky in the lunch box, if you want avoid this we suggest rolling in coconut instead)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds
  • 6 medjool pitted dates
  • 1 tbsp honey


  1. In a food processor, blitz WeetBix, coconut, Milo powder & chia seeds until mixed.  

  2. Add dates and honey and blitz until mixture starts to come together. 

  3. Add 1-2 tablespoons of water to get mixture to a consistency that is well combined and can be rolled into balls. 

  4. Using clean, damp hands roll spoonfuls of mixture in small balls and toss in extra Milo or dessicated coconut to coat. 

  5. Keep in airtight container, refrigerated for up to 1 week and enjoy!
