Ways to encourage your tiny chefs

Getting kids involved in making the nut-free spiced apple bliss balls can be a fun and educational experience! Here are some ideas to get them engaged:

  1. Measuring Ingredients: Let the kids help measure out the oats, coconut, apple, dates, and spices. This can help them practise their math skills and learn about different ingredients.
  2. Blitzing the Mixture: Depending on their age and skill level, kids can help blitz the mixture in the food processor until it's well combined and sticky. Supervise them closely to ensure safety.
  3. Shaping the Bliss Balls: Show the kids how to shape the mixture into balls using their hands. This can be a fun and tactile activity for them.
  4. Rolling in Coconut: After shaping the bliss balls, kids can roll them in desiccated coconut to coat them. This adds a fun texture and flavour to the bliss balls.
  5. Refrigerating and Storing: Teach the kids how to properly store the bliss balls in the fridge and how to enjoy them as a healthy snack.
  6. Cleaning Up: Involve the kids in washing dishes and tidying up the kitchen after cooking. This teaches them the importance of cleaning up after themselves.

Overall, getting kids involved in the kitchen can help them develop important life skills, learn about healthy eating, and create lasting memories with you.
