I still try to keep it healthy using some fresh or dried fruit and steering requests away from cup cakes. Muffins, fruit scones, date loaf and fruit cakes are great for morning or afternoon tea snacks and travel well to social gatherings. One I particularly like are the muesli bites which are dead easy, they can get their hands messy and you can also give them as a gift......competition for the wave of rum balls appearing at this time!
Enjoy getting into your kitchen with the little ones and help them to enjoy the cooking experience.
