Miss Rabbit’s Delicious No-Bake Energy Bites made with carrots from Peppa’s Vegetable Garden (Sponsored Post)
Getting our kids to eat healthy and try new foods is something that most of us are striving for on a daily basis. But encouraging children to eat good nutritious food is not always easy when they are bombarded with sugary processed snacks in advertising and in shops.
I’ve teamed up with Ladybird Books to show how using our favourite little piggy, Peppa, can help to foster healthier habits for kids. The newly released Peppa’s Vegetable Garden is a board book aimed at children aged 2-6 years in which Grandpa Pig introduces Peppa and George to the joys of growing their own vegetables in the garden. Peppa and George have lots of fun choosing what veggies to grow, planting their seeds and learning to be patient as they grow. They then enjoy a delicious vegetable feast!
To celebrate the launch of Peppa’s Vegetable Garden I’ve made a these delicious Carrot Cake Energy Bites, inspired by the vegetables that Peppa and George grow.
These energy bites are so easy to make. They require no cooking or baking, the ingredients are simply mixed together in a bowl. This is a great way to get the kids involved in making their own snacks.
The bites are made with oats which provide lots of fibre and slow-releasing energy, making them a great afternoon snack for growing kids. The carrots provide a lovely sweetness and when coupled with a touch of cinnamon, help the bites to taste like carrot cake!
