Recipes to take you back to your childhood!

I Quit Sugar - Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream Sandwiches

Let’s be honest, being a kid was super fun…

No bills, no stress, nap time on demand, no weekend homework – plus, the food was delicious too. No doubt all of us have a few dishes in mind that when we smell them, taste them, or even think about them, take us back to when we were sproglets.

While some of them are what we’d consider less-than-healthy now (hello, spaghetti in a can!), kids food doesn’t need to be a sugar-laden nightmare. Here are a few of our fave recipes that big kids and small are sure to love…

Coconut Chicken Nuggets with Pumpkin Mash

Chicken nuggets without the nasties? Yes, please! With a crispy, coco-nutty crust, this dish will take you way back.

My Spaghetti Bolognese

Forget tinned spaghetti because this recipe is packed with flavour and proves the humble bowl of spaghetti bolognese can be just as nourishing as it is delicious.

Chocolate Hazelnut Ice Cream Sandwiches

Nothing speaks of childhood more than ice-cream running down your arm, right? Trust us, these taste just as good as they look.

Loaded Black Bean Nachos

Food just tastes better when you can get stuck in there with your fingers! Simply ditch the chilli if you’re little ones have more sensitive taste buds.

Coconut “Marshmallows”

Marshmallows are a crowd-pleaser, there’s no doubt about it. But, we’ve taken this delicate flavour and upped the ante with these gummies. Whip up a batch and stash in the fridge to nibble on throughout the week!
