Disney healthy eating

By Alice Westoby

Getting kids to eat healthy can sometimes be a challenge but here are some fun Disney inspired ideas that might help.

It can be hard to get your kids eating healthily, particularly anything green in colour.

So what could possibly spur them to put the chocolate down? Here are some ways to get creative in the kitchen using your little one's favourite Disney characters to inspire some nutritious food...

Alien Avocado Toast

Turn something green that your kids might not like into something green that they do like - aliens!

This avocado on toast is inspired by those adorable green fellas from Disney·Pixar Toy Story. All you need is some bread, some smashed avocado (add salt and pepper to taste) and sour cream and olives for the eyes.

Spread the avocado into a circle in the centre of the toast, add two dollops of sour cream for eyes and top with olives. 

Then cut some spinach to make alien ears and an antennae...out of this world!

Simba's Hummus Platter

Struggling to get your kids to put the crisps down and snack on fruits and vegetables? Try these Lion King themed crudités!

Using cookie cutter, cut a tortilla in a circle and then make smaller half circles for Simba's ears. Add a scoop of hummus on top of the big circular tortilla then begin to make the face.
