Is snacking a bad habit?

Snacking is often seen as a bad habit when it comes to both adults and children. This is because people tend to think of kids tucking into bags of crisps and swigging on sugary drinks. However, good healthy snacks can actually play a really important role in meeting a child’s daily nutritional needs. Kids love snacks, even the healthy ones!

Healthy snacks are a great way of making sure that children are getting enough nutritious food and hidden veggies into their diet. Especially if your child loves snacks but refuses to eat dinners. Healthy snacks are also the perfect way to serve some extra fruit and veg and pack in those vitamins and minerals that are so vital for growing little bodies.

How to make the bread

Preheat your oven to 160ºC/325ºF/gas 3. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon into a large bowl.
