Captain America Bento Lunch & #FunFoodFriday

Captain America Bento Lunch with simple Captain America shield sandwich - healthy food ideas for kids from Eats Amazing UK

After making Small Child a fun Spiderman bento lunch recently, I was inspired to try out another superhero theme, resulting in the simple Captain America bento lunch that I’m sharing with you today.  I have to say I that although this lunch is really simple, I was SO pleased with how Captain America’s shield sandwich turned out! It only took a minute or two to make and both Small Child and Daddy were quite taken with it (Small Baby was unimpressed however, he was too preoccupied with trying to get his hands on the leftover crusts!). Today is also #FunFoodFriday, so as usual, this post contains my Friday linky.  If you’ve written any foodie posts, … Continue reading

Pancake Muffins for Lunch & #FunFoodFriday

Fun Kids Bento Lunch for Pancake Day - Healthy Pancake Muffins School Lunch from Eats Amazing UK

Following on from yesterday’s healthy pancake muffins recipe, today I’m sharing a bento lunch that I packed for Small Child recently using the pancake muffins.  I think it would make a really fun packed lunch idea for pancake day, which is why I’m sharing it today, as pancake day is fast looming – it’s next Tuesday. The lunch itself is quite simple, including some hearts as a nod to tomorrow’s Valentines day too, but I thought the idea of pancake muffins for lunch was a fun one! Today is also #FunFoodFriday, so as usual, this post contains my Friday linky.  If you’ve written any foodie posts, whether it be children’s meals, creative cakes, … Continue reading

Simple Spiderman Bento & #FunFoodFriday

Spiderman themed bento lunch idea from Eats Amazing UK - making healthy food fun for kids

Good morning, and happy Friday to you all! Today I’m sharing a healthy Spiderman themed bento lunch that I made recently.  I themed this lunch by using red and blue foods and accessories, and by adding spiderman themed cupcake rings – simple but effective!  It was a really quick and easy lunch to make, but the Spiderman theme meant that it was a big hit with Small Child. Today is also #FunFoodFriday, so as usual, this post contains my Friday linky.  If you’ve written any foodie posts, whether it be children’s meals, creative cakes, lovely lunches or a delicious recipe you’ve blogged, do feel free to join in and add your link at the bottom … Continue reading

Lego Star Wars Lunch & #FunFoodFriday

Lego Star Wars Themed Food - Fun and healthy kids bento lunch from Eats Amazing UK

In today’s post I’m sharing a Lego Star Wars Lunch that I made recently, which is one of Small Child’s favourite lunches to date.  It was fun to make and I was really pleased with how it turned out too. This week has gone far to quickly, and I must admit to feeling all confused about which day of the week it is because Small Child has a day off school today (sadly no snow here, just an inset day!). I intend to thoroughly enjoy our 3 day weekend, hopefully with lots of lovely quality time with my boys. I’ve checked and assured … Continue reading

Pacman Bento Lunch & #FunFoodFriday

Simple Pacman Themed Kids Bento Lunch - Retro Fun from Eats Amazing UK

This week has flown past, how did it get to #FunFoodFriday so quickly?! Today for my fun food I’m sharing a really simple Pacman themed lunch, this was such fun to make and the retro feel brought me straight back to childhood (my goodness, that sentence made me feel old!).  After making this lunch I then spent rather too much time playing Pacman via Google with Small Child (if the link doesn’t work try typing Pacman into Google) who loved it, though he got rather frustrated whenever he got eaten by one of the ghosties! Anyway, back to lunch, I was … Continue reading

DIY Breakfast Sundae Recipe & #FunFoodFriday

Healthy Breakfast Sundae Recipe - Simple Idea to make breakfast extra special for all the family - easy idea for cooking with children

Today I’m sharing a simple recipe for a really fun and healthy breakfast that children (or adults!) can make themselves – a yummy DIY breakfast sundae. The components of the sundae are all ordinary foods that work well for breakfast, but as always, it’s all in the presentation, and this is definitely the prettiest breakfast I’ve had for some time! I’m hoping to share a few fresh breakfast ideas this month, in celebration of Breakfast Week, which starts on the 25th January, a campaign I am very happy to support as I agree wholeheartedly with the idea that breakfast is an absolutely vital part of the day.  You … Continue reading

Monkey Themed Toddler Meal & #FunFoodFriday

Healthy Monkey Themed Fun Muffin Tin Meal Idea for a Toddler - Eats Amazing UK

It’s been a while since I’ve made a muffin tin meal, but Small Baby had this one recently and he really enjoyed it, so I’m going to start making them for him more regularly. I consider muffin tin meals to be a great introduction to bento style lunches for babies and toddlers – they make it easy to provide a good variety of healthy foods whilst keeping control over portion sizes, and they are perfect for fun meals at home.  I’ve noticed that Small Baby seems more willing to try new things and also eats a bigger selection of food when it is presented in this … Continue reading

Simple Snowman Snack & #FunFoodFriday

Eats Amazing UK - Quick and simple snowman snack idea that children can design themselves - fun, healthy, snack for a Frozen olaf fan!

I’m really getting into the festive mood this week, but like most people at this time of year I’m ridiculously busy and time for creative food is limited.  I recently had a fun idea though that involved pretty much zero effort from me and has been a big hit with Small Child – a DIY Snowman snack! The first time I made it I used yoghurt, which went down very well, but then I had the idea to try the same thing at breakfast time with porridge, and that was a massive hit – Small Child has requested snowman porridge for breakfast every day since! The … Continue reading
