Kids love the sweet stuff, and they especially love it if they don’t know that it’s good for them and they think they’re getting a treat. These ice pops are super easy and naturally sweetened with juicy mango and sweet-tart passion fruit. Popscicle recipes are great for teething babies and for hiding fresh fruit and veggies from picky eaters.
When it comes to kids’ birthday food, you need to have fun, quick and easy party food ideas, especially picked out for little hands. When kids are out playing in the summer, the last thing they want to do is stop and come in to have something to eat; they want something easy to eat and something fun and exciting too.
Summer is a time for fun, to be playing outdoors and then cooling down and getting sticky with yummy ice lollies. However, too many of those ice lollies with all their artificial colours and sugar are not good for your little ones. These delicious Mango and Passionfruit Pops are a great healthy alternative, made using a yummy blend of fruit and Greek yoghurt, they are a great way to cool your toddler down over the warm summer months, and they only take five minutes to make.
Not only are these pops a great party food, but they are also they are a great way to cool teething gums down. Teething can make your baby extra fussy and be a pickier eater than normal too. So being prepared with delicious snacks that will also help soothe sensitive gums as well as keeping your little one nourished will make your baby’s life (and yours) much happier.
These teething pops are a Dunnes Stores recipe and are high in protein as they include Mango, passionfruit flesh, Greek yoghurt, mint leaves and turmeric powder which is excellent for aiding digestion too and has great anti-inflammatory properties. Put those ingredients out on the table, and the kids would likely turn their noses up at them, however, blend them together and pop them into some ice pop moulds, and you’ll have something they can’t resist.
These are an excellent idea for any kids’ birthday or kids’ party food or simply to help you get through that awful teething stage.
