The summer holidays are upon us, hurrah! Having the children at home for the next six weeks can be a daunting thought, can’t it?
Luckily we have lots of day trips planned and that means packed lunches or picnics. I like to feel organised when it comes to food and snacks and offer the children a variety to chose from so they don’t get bored.
I want the children to have healthy snacks and not too much of the packaged stuff (some is ok) but mostly I try to come up with interesting foods to grab and go.
I recently saw a brilliant video from Tickle Fingers showing how to make crisps from pitta breads and considering I had some pitta breads leftover from fajita night I thought I’d give it a go.
Pitta breads (I used 6)
- Preheat oven to 200 degrees
- Cut pitta breads into triangles
- Drizzle with olive oil
- Sprinkle over paprika and a pinch of sea salt
- Bake in the oven for around 10 minutes or until nice and crispy
The pitta chips were absolutely delicious. I served them with a chilli con carne for our evening meal and still had some left over the next day that the children had with some hummus at lunchtime.
Really quick and seriously easy to make. You could add whatever herbs or spices you like-mixed herbs, chilli, curry powder, whatever you like. Use them to accompany a main meal and for a savoury snack on the go.0
