Healthy snacks for your kids

Try creating some of these delicious snacks for your children - they'll go down a treat and are super healthy too!

Dried apple rings

Using an apple corer, take the centre out of 3-4 apples. Leave the skin on for added texture or remove if you prefer.

Horizontally slice the apple into rings measuring about3-5mm in thickness.

Lay these flat on a baking sheet covered in greaseproofpaper.

Cover the sheet (you might want to do several batches atonce) and place in a warm oven for several hours. There is no set formula for the best applerings as the outcome will depend upon apple variety, its water content and howchewy you like them!

Either 6 -8hrs at gas 1 / 150C or bump up the heat to 200C /Gas 6 and reduce the cooking time to 1-2 hrs but you will need to watch themmore closely at the higher temperatures and make sure they don’t burn.

Leave to cool and then store in an airtight container or bag. These make a great snack for kids at school.

An entire street signs up to Motivation Nation!

60% of families and a third of 10 and 11 year olds are overweight or obese so getting the whole family motivated is key.

Kate and Jessie are live in Canterbury with a street who have signed up to Motivation Nation. One of the mums has already dropped a dress size by making one change to her diet.
