Zucchini Vanilla Birthday Cake

I’m always looking for healthy and tasty birthday cake ideas and this time I really wanted to bake a summer cake that could also work as a light and fluffy dessert for other occasions. Also, my kids are not big fans of frosting and creams. When we go to birthday parties with cupcakes they always […]

Egg substitutes for recipes: which one to use case by case

Allergies and intolerances are unfortunately very common in babies and kids. About 6 million kids have a food allergy. Impressive, I know. Statistically boys have more allergies than girls. Allergies’ symptoms are very similar to cold ones: runny nose, rash, upset stomach, cranky mood. If you think that your little one might have an allergy, […]

Let’s start the morning in the best way with a breakfast full of nutrients = vegetables (hidden, yes, but still there!!) + vitamins + fast digesting carbs and proteins…and a lovely chocolate flavor that will make your little one […]

Chickpeas Crackers – Gluten and Dairy Free

My kids love crackers (and bread). It’s a super quick, filling and comforting snack. That’s why I’m very picky about the kind of crackers that I buy for them. I always double check the (long) list of ingredients to see what is really inside. Sometimes you can’t really imagine what they can hide under a […]

Oat Vegetable Tots

Tots, patties, balls, croquettes…are my favorite way to sneak in vegetables in my kids diet without them even noticing it. I’m not a fan of hiding vegetables and fruit in the recipes, I think that the more the kids are conscious of what they are eating, the less picky they will get. At the same […]

Baked Teriyaki Chicken with Vegetables

This is one of my favorite family recipe, super kid friendly thanks to the bite size and the Teriyaki sauce taste. It’s easy to make, healthy and I can substitute the vegetables following the seasons and pending what is available at the farmers market. I like to serve the Teriyaki Chicken on a bed of […]

Superfood Fruit baby puree : fig & pluot

Fruit baby purees using seasonal fruit are always the best: naturally sweet and so flavorful!! Today I’ve chosen two fruits that are at the top of their season (and so, even sweeter than usual!): figs and pluots.  If you do not know pluots, they look like plums but they are an hybrid of plums and apricots, […]

Frozen Strawberry Yogurt popsicles

This recipe is so simple that your kids can have fun preparing it!! You will only need sweet seasonal strawberries, the yogurt of your choice and paper straws. STRAWBERRIES: I really suggest to use organic ones. Unfortunately strawberries are always in the dirty dozen food list with pesticide residues on it. Buying organic is the […]

Kids Gazpacho with Tomatoes and Cucumbers – freshness in a sip!

Gazpacho is incredibly easy to make, the perfect summer staple for all ages…and perfect for kids. I love to use fresh seasonal tomatoes as a base of my Gazpachos. Tomatoes are rich in the antioxidant lycopene and Vitamin C. When ripe and in season their taste is heaven. For today’s Gazpacho I used the Japanese […]

Gluten free buckwheat crepes with mozzarella, avocado, ham & tomatoes

Buckwheat crepes are a naturally gluten free option for your kids. They are lovely both with a sweet or savory filling. The flavor is kind of unique: nutty, very close to a dark toast bread or even some rich beer. Buckwheat is not a grain but a seed of a plant (very close to the […]
