Fun Food Friday - Dino Toast!

Fun Food Friday - Dino Toast!

Dinnertime for kids can be hard work sometimes. Will they eat? Won’t they eat? The dog will definitely eat! You can spend hours in the kitchen making batches of food for them to eventually push off the table or not touch at all. Even the last resort frozen chips at the back of freezer can be a fail when they STILL refuse to eat. Pesto Pasta again i guess…thank god for that stuff! It’s hard to keep up with what foods they’re obsessed with and which foods they hate as they swap and change so quickly.

Rudy can be quite a fussy eater. He loves his fruit, eats his veg if its hidden (although he is getting better with that now) but there are some foods which I’d love for him to eat. A simple roasted fillet of fish with green veg and new potatoes for example… One of Dylan's fave meals that Rudy hates. If I’m lucky I’ll manage to get 3 or 4 mouthfuls down him then he’s off wondering over to the fridge in search for his next meal! So frustrating!

 

Rudy loves an avocado but has started to turn it down now and again of recent so I wanted to sustain his love affair with that green little wonder for as long as possible. I decided to get creative and make… Dino Toast!

Super easy and only takes about 10 mins!

Ingredients :

  • Small handful of coriander
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Pinch of pepper
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • 1-2 slices of bread
  • 1 Ripe Avocado

 Add all of the ingredients together and mix. Once mixed pop your bread in the toaster and leave to one side to cool.

 I chop the Coriander really finely so there's no nit picking at the extra 'Green Stuff'

 Spread your Quac mixture thinly onto your toasted bread. Now the fun part, get the cookie cutter and push really really hard to make sure the shape of whatever you've decided to make works perfectly. I used Hovis Wholemeal 'Small' loaf for my Dino Toast. I find the size works perfectly and there's not any waste after you've created your masterpiece.

 And there you have it, Dino Toast! I did find that I had to tidy up some areas using a knife but it was no biggie and in this pic I've used Sunflower seeds instead of Pumpkin seeds to decorate. All optional.
