As the school holidays are almost upon us I thought I might share some healthy kid-friendly snack recipes to help keep tummies full and fueled for endless holiday activities!

Banana Muesli Squares

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 3cm-deep 26x16cm slice pan. Combine 1 cup rolled oats, ½ cup each of dried apricots and apple (finely chopped), sultanas, natural almonds (coarsely chopped) and sunflower seeds and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a large bowl.

Combine 2 mashed bananas, 1 tablespoon tahini and 1 egg (lightly whisked) in a small bowl. Add to oat mixture and stir until well combined. Spoon into prepared pan and smooth surface. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and firm to touch. Cool completely before cutting. Makes 24 squares.

Apple and Sultana Wraps

Preheat a sandwich press. Place 2 wholegrain tortillas on a flat surface. Spread 1 side of each tortilla with 1 teaspoon of extra-light spreadable cream cheese. Distribute ½ cup canned no added sugar apple slices, 1 tablespoon and a pinch of cinnamon along 1 edge of each tortilla. Roll up to enclose.

Place in press. Cook for 2-3 minutes or until tortilla is toasted and filling warmed through. Cut in half and serve.
