Swap this for that – Healthy Kid’s Party food – Delicious Donuts

Healthy Kid's Party Food

Donuts are one of the trendiest foods to have a your child’s party this year. They are colourful and delicious and look fabulous on your party table. In this blog, I show you how to serve a healthier version of donuts at your child’s party, something still fun and sweet, but a little lower in fat and with some added nutritional value. They are simple to make and the ingredients will be super easy for you to source. Healthy kid’s party food is easy to do, you just need to think outside the box and I guarantee your kiddos will love them!

I started with two large green apples; red would work just fine too. After washing and coring them, I turned each apple on their sides and sliced them into 5mm wide discs. You should end up with donut shaped apple slices. I then made up a batch of buttercream icing, choosing pink food colouring to tint the icing. I then proceeded to spread one side of the donut apple slice with icing. Finish off with some sprinkles, and voila! You have a donut!!

This donut looks appetising and contains vitamins, minerals and about ½ the fat of a normal donut. You could replace your icing sugar with an artificially sweetened icing to cut down your sugar content. We can’t get over how cute they look, how easy they were to make and how much kids love them!
