Best Summer School Holiday Recipes

Best Summer School Holiday Recipes. As the summer school holidays draw to a close, why not treat the kids to some special dishes and celebrate rather than commiserate their impending return to school.

Breakfast & brunch

This weekend is the perfect time to spoil the kids, and yourself, to a hearty breakfast. It’s sure to get everyone off to the right start and the young ones will love waking up to these morning meals. If you’re having trouble convincing them to try something new, why not get them involved in the cooking process?

Sweet treats

Every kid has a sweet tooth, so satiate his or her sugary appetite with these colourful delights. They’re a great way to keep little hands occupied and are especially handy when you’ve got a big group of active kids. Best of all, they will keep for a few days when stored properly, to keep the good times rolling.

Hokey Pokey Biscuits

Citrus Lamingtons

Icy Poles

Quick & Easy

Snacks can be boring, but not with these simple and delicious recipes. Last night’s failsafe bolognaise becomes a tasty and interesting lunch. Rice paper rolls are a great way to incorporate fresh herbs and veggies into their diet– and fun to make. And a basket full of sandwiches is sure to guarantee a fun picnic day out.
