Starting the day with a healthy and nutritional breakfast is the best way to start any day, however, it’s easier said than done, isn’t it? Children can be fussy eaters, and when it comes to eating vegetables, it can be a real struggle, especially when they refuse to eat what’s on their plate. So it’s important to keep things interesting, simple and tasty, of course. As parents, all we want is the best for our kids, and when it comes to food we want to fill them with all the right nutrients. We spoke to Lorraine Sarayeldin, founder of PomPom Paddock, a family owned business, with a mission to create simple, delicious and nutritious plant-based products that promote health and wellbeing.

Sneaky nutrients

As a parent, we all know the trick of masking greens in lasagne, spaghetti bolognese and pie but did you know that you can do the same with any recipe? PomPom Paddock have recently released a Deliciously Nutritious Pancake & Waffle mix for those who want a healthy and more nutritious alternative to flour based products. Next time you’re kids are craving pancakes, opt for PomPom Paddocks, new Pancake & Waffle mix. It’s definitely no ordinary pancake mix, as this bottle is packed of all the good stuff, it’s high in magnesium, iron, calcium and it is also plant based and gluten free. With a hint of vanilla, its the perfect go-to Sunday morning brunch that the entire family will love, plus you know you’re fueling them with nutrients, without them even knowing.

Time Poor

If you’re a parent who doesn’t have much time on their hands, then thinking ahead is vital. Try making health breakfast foods that you can store in the fridge or freezer so you can grab on those mornings that you have no time to cook. A great recipe for this, is a frittata, which you can store in the freezer for months and grab it out the morning before. Just be sure to use the right ingredients, like PomPom Paddocks, gluten free cauliflower flour mix, packed with all the right nutrients your family needs.

Have fun with food

Rather than making eating a chore for kids, it’s important to get them involved at a young age. Try educating them on what foods are good for them and why, and also get them involved in the cooking process. Kids love when they feel like they have accomplished something, so when you have a free morning let them choose something nutritious that they want to make and make it a fun experience, for you and the family to enjoy. For instance, rather than buying pre-packaged muesli bars, make them yourself, let the kids choose what they want in them and just be sure to also add in some dried fruit, oats and PomPom Paddocks, gluten free Cauliflower mix so they’re also nutritious but also delicious.
