As the weather cools down, hungry tummies can be even hungrier by the time they arrive home from school. Set them up for an afternoon of play (and homework!) with some delicious apple cinnamon and walnut fritters or these raspberry and hazelnut muffins.
Why should I include nuts in our afternoon snack?
Nuts are an important part of your child’s diet. They’re rich in healthy fats, high in fibre, a source of protein and contain a wide variety of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. If your child isn’t allowed to take nuts to school or attends a ‘nut free’ day care, their afternoon snack is a perfect time to make sure they’re getting their healthy handful.
