When it comes to getting children involved in healthy eating over Easter try the messy fun of making squishy, no-cook raw snack balls.
Made with real food ingredients and full of nutrients, these bite-size treats are at the opposite end of the nutritional scale from the empty rollercoaster of highs and lows that come from typical confectionary. I’ve found them to be popular with all age ranges too, so keep a secret stash in the fridge unless you are prepared to have them cleared out as post-gym snacks or munchies for teen hangouts.
There’s an endless array of these raw snack ball recipes in my recipe blog, but here are two of the most popular - carrot cake for the kids and raw power chocolate truffles for exhausted parents in need of a boost.
After all, chocolate is one of our most ancient aphrodisiacs. The chemical in chocolate that affects desire is phenylethylamine, which triggers the pleasure centres in the brain. The darker the better, since it is cocoa that is the kicker, not the sugar. Studies show that dark chocolate also contains a potent antioxidant capable of destroying free radicals so you’ll be sexier and younger looking too - bonus!
