Health Tips

  • This is a delicious kids-approved recipe, which is easy to make and serve!
  • Apples are a delicious on-the-go fruit packed with various nutrients. Apples are great for kids, as they come in many varieties and sizes, and can be given as a part of packed lunches. They have been shown to reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer. Apples also contain phenolic compounds which possess antioxidant properties. They do not have any cholesterol and have good fiber content which helps to prevent constipation.
  • Peanut butter is made by blending peanuts with oil. It provides protein, vitamins B3 and E, magnesium, folate, dietary fiber, and high levels of p-coumaric acid which is an antioxidant. Peanut butter made with the skin of peanuts has a high content of resveratrol and monounsaturated fatty acids which protect against cardiovascular disease.
  • Those with an allergy to peanuts should refrain from consuming this dish due to the peanut butter included.
  • Adding granola on top is a good way of including oats in your children's diets, as oats have a high content of soluble fiber and beta-glucans. Granola also has honey and is packed with energy-giving carbohydrates.
  • Other fruits like pears can also be used along with apples.
