Cakes, biscuits and treats

Broccoli bread

Ed Halmagyi's deliciously sneaky recipe that includes a powerful serve of super-nutritious broccoli.

Banana & strawberry fruit straps

Make your own fruit roll ups. A very high energy snack.

Banana yoghurt cake

This lunch box idea has been developed by Lyndal Wellard from Healthy Kids School Canteen Association (SCA).

Fruit salad with vanilla dressing

The vanilla dressing adds a new twist to a standard fruit salad.

Carrot and parsnip muffins

These muffins freeze well and can be defrosted and microwaved to serve warm.

Cheddar, apple and grape kebabs

A quick and easy snack with calcium and fruit.

Crunchy-headed raspberry yoghurt

You'll have this one ready to go in less time than it takes the kettle to boil in the morning, so why not whip it up while you're making a cup of tea?


A nice homemade treat for the lunch box.

Gluten-free pear muffins

These muffins are gluten free, egg free and nut free, perfect for allergy-prone kids.

Grilled haloumi and watermelon kebabs

A fantastic mix of flavours makes this snack a favourite.

Linseed and apple muffins

Tasty and nut free, these muffins will keep your kids happy.

Apricot macaroon slice

This slice should be served in small portions for small people, and has less fat and sugar than most store-bought treats. That said, it's also a great mid-morning snack for parents too!

Pear and banana muffins

Make the muffins mini in size to be child-friendly.

Vanilla cookies

A simple cookie for allergy-prone kids. Like all biscuits, best saved as a treat food.

Home made muesli bars

These muesli bars can be made once a month, so they're always on hand, ready to go. They also make great energy snacks for the kids' sports team at half time.
