End of year school party platters The Healthy Mummy way

There is nothing better than a well-presented, healthy food platter to celebrate the end of the kindy school term. And these lovely and very creative mums have come up with platters to wow even the fussiest of children.

These mums have used ideas from The Healthy Mummy 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge and the free recipes on our website to create their colourful and delicious Christmas platters.

Healthy Candy Canes.

These candy canes are a great way for your child to get in their fruit. You can prep the fruit into slices and then put it together to form a healthy candy cane!

“I was unable to make them into the shape of a cane, so I just made them sticks!” laughs Eleanor.
