Children are generally a lot more active than adults and growing at a fast rate, so having a snack in between meals may give them a welcome boost. This is a quick healthy snack option, that my little girl loves. Generally smaller tummies fill up fast and energy is burnt off quicker. I find these very useful for when we are on the go and they make great finger foods for smaller children too.
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 large sweet potato, thinly sliced
2 parsnips, thinly sliced
2 apples, cored and thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 170°C (fan oven). Wash the sweet potato, parsnips and apples. Thinly slice them, leave the skin on for extra nutrition (I use my trusty mandolin, but I have used just a knife too) . Toss the sweet potato, parsnips and apples slices in olive oil. Arrange on a baking tray and bake at 170C fan for 10 -15 mins or until cooked, turning halfway. Remove from the oven cool on kitchen paper, and pile into bowls for eating!
