Healthy Recipe for Kids

Meet Apple Jack, the appetising apple that makes eating fruit fun

Encouraging children to try fruit in a fun way promotes healthy habits at an early stage. And what can be healthier than the fruit that allegedly keeps doctors away?

We also know that sometimes the healthy option can be a little bit boring. We wanted to share a wholesome alternative to junk food that you and your kids can have fun making together.

So meet “Apple Jack”! This spooky looking apple will get kids excited about healthy food.

For this recipe, you will need:

  • Apples
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Some lolly “googly”eyes
  • Your favourite nut butter – we’re using peanut butter.
  • A sharp knife
  • A butter knife
  • Cutting board

Step 1

Using the sharp knife, slice two “cheeks” from the apple, avoiding the core in the middle.

Slice the remaining cheeks from the apple.

Step 2

Cut a “mouth” shape from the two larger slices of apple.

Step 3

Using butter knife, spread a thin layer of nut butter into the “mouth”. It’s okay if it’s a little messy.

Step 4

Carefully position the sunflower seeds into the “mouth”, trying to make them look like scary teeth.

Step 5

Using the sharp knife, slice the small pieces of apple lengthways into thin slices.

Step 6

Arrange the thin slices of apple underneath the large pieces, fan them out so they look like legs.

Step 7

Using a little dot of nut butter as glue, place as many google eyes as you want onto your new apple monsters.

Step 8

Transfer your monsters to a plate and be brave as you eat your spooky creations!
