5 easy healthy snacks for kids

easy healthy snacks for kids

There’s always a case when someone is hungry while you’re in the middle of cooking or haven’t even started cooking. Here are 5 easy healthy snacks you can simply stick in an air-tight container in the fridge for times like these or to nibble on throughout the day.

1. Carrot and Celery Sticks
Most children like eating carrots and celery because of the crunch and also because they are sweet. Not only do they fill a little hole in the tummy, they are also super healthy! Make it interesting and pair them with some home-made hummus. 🙂

2. Fruits
Everyone loves fruits. Dice up some of your favourite fruits. Watermelon, melon, apples (drizzle with lemon so they don’t yellow), grapes, papaya, oranges. remember, if they are not still in it’s skin, they don’t last too long, so eat up! try making a fruit salad!

3. Raisins
Another healthy snack for the family. Not only for in the house, they can be kept everywhere for the “just in case I’m hungry” moments. Perfect for pack lunches too!

4. Yogurt
A must have for a healthy family especially if you have children. You could even get creative by buying plain yogurt and have your children help you create their own flavours too!

5. Cereal
Don’t give in to the chocolate, sugar coated cereals to make things easy. When you start your children young, they would be happy with practically any cereal you give them. Serve with milk and add some honey for sweetness or simply serve as it is so they can much on them. Adults like cereal just as much a children do too!

HP Print Apps

HP print apps – easy family fun!

Technology is so advanced nowadays with gadgets and gizmos a-plenty; it’s pretty hard to keep up. Luckily our printers don’t really need to be changed as much as we try keep up-to-date with our phones.

Back in the day, when choosing a printer, it was always about print quality and many prints a cartridge of ink can produce. These days, same case but there are WAY MORE functions then there use to be. Kadang2 I pon boleh pening yo!

Printers started out as black and white printers, then colour printers, and then they added a scanner function, then adding a fax machine. But what is awesome is that these new functions are seriously awesome!!

Today, multi-function all-in-one printers with print, scan, copy and fax features are easy to find and now with the new- aged advanced technology, say bye-bye to the hassle of hooking up cables to your computers and laptops. Most printers now also have a built in wi-fi function which allow us to print even from our mobile phones!

I have always been using a HP printer which has been treating me great for many years. As much as i am a tree-hugger, i’m a very physical worker and i need to touch what i read and edit with a pen. I’m old-skool like that.

Recently i received a little gift which was the new HP Ink Advantage 4515 printer which is AWESOME! On top of the printer already producing excellent quality prints and photos, HP had a little addition to the features – Print Apps by HP. These are essentially special print apps available exclusively for use on HP Web-enabled printers. A print app is a shortcut to printing content from the Web directly from your printer, without the use of a computer.

Print apps give you direct access to great pre-formatted content from HP and leading companies from around the world, like Dreamworks, Crayola and Rovio (of Angry Birds fame). You can choose from a growing library of print apps making printing faster, simpler and more useful than ever. And the best of all, these apps are FREE!!! As long as you purchase a HP web-enabled printer, the world of these apps is your oyster!

Steps on how to download exclusive HP Print Apps:

Step 1: Create an HP ePrint Centre account or if you already have an account, log into hp.nu/C3qCA

Step 2: Collect your printer’s claiming code by following the instructions here: hp.nu/C3rdV

Step 3: Click “Add a device” on the Devices tab and enter your printer’s claiming code.

Step 4: All set! You can now browse through the exclusive HP Printables and download them into your HP Printer.

Once you’ve downloaded from HP Printables wide range of free content which include Dreamworks, Angry Birds, High five, Leapfrog, Origami, Math Olympiad onto your HP printer, they will then be available to print out directly from your HP printer without the need of your computer and you can even schedule your prints for automatic delivery on the days you choose.

It’s always lots of fun when it comes to printing because then i can make colour books for my daughter Ariana and even print out worksheets for her as she loves learning. Every day Ariana would be begging me to print out more and more and i wouldn’t have to feel lazy turning on the computer and searching for things to print as it is all already loaded on the printer itself. TOO EASY!!!

Mummy, daddy, don’t fret! There’s stuff for us too! For brain busters like myself, there are crosswords. A big library of recipes are also available for printing for cooking lovers (like myself too) and even apps for those who want to keep up to date with the latest news (NOT like myself).

All in all, HP has been around for the longest time and I can trust them and their printing products. I am always a fan of what they have to offer.

A Place to Stuff Your Face

When it comes to good hearty food, we always want what’s best for our littles. Homemade like, natural ingredients, healthy, basically, yummy food. BSCs Stuff Your Face is no failure to deliver. Yummy food, good portions and all at an affordable price. Located on the top floor of Bangsar Shopping Centre, just behind the skating rink, it’s the perfect place for parents to sit down for coffee while the kiddos are running wild at the nearby play place. It is also a good place to throw your littles birthday party too!

With love, mummy was fortunate enough to get some goodies from this great place to celebrate Sharifah Sofia’s daughter, Ariana’s, 3rd birthday, their specialty, strawberry shortbread. Sooooooooo goooooood! No joke! It melts in your mouth, not so sweet and it made to perfection. Not only did we have some to serve the party, we also threw some into goodie bags for our honoured guests.
