The holiday period is upon us, and with that comes sweet treats and indulgences. However, children on a sugar rush can be bad for their health, if nothing else.
We at Active Superstars have put together some Christmas themed recipes that you and the children can make together, but are also healthy.
Yoghurt Dipped Oranges
- Natural Yoghurt or White Chocolate
- Skewer Sticks
- Greaseproof Paper
- Peel orange and place individual orange segments on skewer sticks or cocktail sticks.
- Dip the top of each segment into natural yoghurt, or melted low fat chocolate.
- Add toppings! Walnuts, ginger, sprinkles or crushed candy cane are great options
- Lay them down on parchment/greaseproof paper and place them in to the fridge to wait for the yoghurt/chocolate to harden
