Rainbow Cocktail for Kids

All natural - no food colourings - rainbow ice cubes from Eats Amazing UK - Summer fun for kids

In today’s post I’m sharing a fun and simple rainbow cocktail for kids.  This is one of those projects that started one way, and unexpectedly turned out slightly differently from how I had imagined it, but the final result was still fun and delicious, and I thought it was worth a share! I was originally attempting to make rainbow ice cubes (inspired by these super fun rainbow cubes from Happy Hooligans), but instead of using food colourings, I wanted to see if I could make them all natural and sneak in some extra vitamins!) by using fruit juices instead. I started by hunting out the brightest … Continue reading

Ladybug Themed Food Ideas for Kids

Loads of ladybug themed food ideas for kids - great for party food healthy snacks and packed lunches - from Eats Amazing UK

Today I’m sharing a few fun ladybug themed food ideas for kids.  Actually I usually call them ladybirds, but apparently Google likes ladybug better…! Still, ladybug or ladybird, they’re still very cute and make for some great themed food! I’ve used these some of these ideas to go in creative bento lunches, but you could also make them for lunches at home, snacks or cute kids party food ideas. First up is a simple ladybug sandwich.  This is so easy to make, with minimal equipment needed. Start by making a round sandwich (I used the largest of my nesting circle cutters).  Take a piece … Continue reading

Tefal ActiFry Review & Dessert Recipe

Apple potato pecans and popcorn recipe -this unusal combination makes a delicious and healthy dessert - vegan and dairy free

Earlier this year I was offered the chance to try the Tefal ActiFry.  I do love my kitchen gadgets so I was delighted to give it a try, and today I’m sharing my thoughts in this Tefal ActiFry review. I’m also sharing a fun dessert recipe in today’s post, challenging the idea that an ActiFry is just for chips! You may be wondering what an ActiFry is, so in short, it’s a healthy fryer which uses just 1 spoonful of oil to cook 1kg of delicious chips (or rather fries, for my American readers!). It’s not just for chips though – you can also cook curries, … Continue reading

Can you help Eats Amazing?

When I first set up the Eats Amazing blog, I never dreamed of the places that it would take me, the people that I would meet, the opportunities it would bring me or the knowledge I would gain.  Over the last year I have attended a blogging awards ceremony, taken part in a flash dance, met some truly amazing fellow bloggers and my fun bento lunches have been showcased in the local, national and international press and on TV! Since starting my blog I’ve learnt to set up and run a website, set up and run social media pages for Eats Amazing on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest, (to mention a … Continue reading

Frozen Pineapple Ice Pops Recipe

Pineapple Frozen Ice Pops - fun and healthy ice pop alternative for the kids this summer from Eats Amazing UK with video tutorial - clean eating summer snack idea

Today I’m sharing a really simple idea that just came to me recently, one of those ‘I can’t believe I never thought of that before’ ideas, in the form of these frozen pineapple ice pops.  We have been a bit obsessed with freezing things in the Eats Amazing household recently, but on the plus side our freezer has been dispensing a steady supply of fun and healthy cold snacks when the sun has been shining and I certainly won’t need to buy any ice lollies this summer! It feels great to know that we can avoid all the artificial colours and flavours and that my children won’t miss … Continue reading
