kids under the sea breakfast

Food art is so fascinating for kids as for adults. I will never mind to get such plate as breakfast in bed. I find it amusing too 🙂

Anyone can make this cute breakfast (could be a snack as well). Very simple and easy. You will need:

  • thin slices of cucumber cut lengthwise for the stems
  • 2 carrots slices to make the fish
  • handful cereal breakfast for the sea
  • small raisins for the water bubbles
  • one big raisin cut in 4 for the turtle hands and legs
  • one medium raisin for the turtle head
  • one kiwi slice for the turtle body
  • edible paint for the turtle and fish eyes (optional)

It’s great to get your kid eat healthy food and have fun in the same time. When nady saw the plate he started waving his hands like a fish and singing. The turtle really grabbed his attention too! Amazed by his beautiful breakfast, he was hesitating whether to contemplate, play or start digging in!

homemade fresh watermelon and kiwi popsicles – popsicoholic part 3


Beat the heat with a refreshing treat!

Popsicoholic part 3: watermelon and kiwi popsicles.

This is an incredible summer dessert, low in calories and completely nutritious. Watermelon with kiwi, a little taste of the tropics to beat Doha heat.

In a food processor mix 2 cups of watermelon with 1 tbsp sugar and a pinch of salt. Salt might seem like a strange ingredient to add to a dessert, but it actually helps make the flavor of the watermelon more intense, but it can be optional, some people won’t like it, it’s very subjective. (my husband doesn’t like it with this pinch of salt, he is more into sweet flavors).

Again in the food processor puree 3 kiwis with 1 tsp of sugar.

Pour the mix in molds, making one big layer of watermelon and a small one of kiwi, to make it look like a watermelon wedge!

Freeze until solid. You should get 6 to 7 popsicles depending on your mold size. You can freeze up to one week.

To remove the popsicles from the molds, run under warm water until they are easily released.
