MyDeal Pro Tip:
Get the kids helping you in the kitchen
The best part of cooking with family-friendly recipes is the kids will want to be involved in the process. Turn it into a family bonding experience by employing tiny hands for simple tasks like measuring, mixing and taste testing! If they can’t reach the bench there’s kids furniture solutions like a decorative step stool. For really little ones check out the MyDeal baby equipment range of high chairs. No matter what age you can inspire a love of food and cooking.
Lisa McInerney | Healthiest Christmas Tree Cake Ever
“This is the healthiest Christmas Cake ever! Sure; you could decorate a piece of celery with tinsel and cherry tomatoes but I’m not sure how filling that would be… and the tinsel would probably get stuck in your teeth! It's made with 2 vegetables, looks amazing and is super kid and family friendly. The tree is a Chocolate cake made with Sweet Potato (no one will ever know!) and the green peppermint frosting isn't made with any food colouring; it’s Spinach! This recipe is Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Nut Free and Paleo friendly.”

These are just like ooey gooey rice crispy treats, but with salted popcorn as the base and little green and red holiday M&Ms added. A perfect snack for Santa.”
