Olympic Fun Food!
It has to be done really doesn’t it – Olympic-inspired fun food for kids. If I’m being honest, I haven’t been at all interested in the Olympics this time. The time difference may have something to do with it! I have a toddler who thinks sleep is for losers…so rowing and swimming at 2am just isn’t doing it for me I’m afraid. I was a little more interested in London 2012 but I guess that’s because it was right here in good old blighty?! Although I have to say, I was impressed when I heard an interview on Radio 2 this morning (yes yes, I’m getting old and just can’t cope with R1 racket in the morning haha!) with a butcher who sponsors one of the athletes – Rebeka Tiler. She will be lifting weights for Britain in Rio. This super cool butcher supplies her with all the meat she needs to help build up her protein – how nice is that?! Talk about a sponsorship deal ey. So here, our weightlifting fun food using veggies and breadsticks 🙂 Somehow I don’t think that would build Rebeka up much :/
Ready, Set, Go!
Ok ok, so to get into the spirit a teeny tiny bit, I thought I’d put together some games-inspired fun food. Here I make three super simple snacks that literally anyone can recreate in the kitchen.
First up we have Olympic Torch Toast. This is perfect as a quick breakfast or snack and it involves things I typically have in the kitchen – namely bread, apples and oranges 🙂 Toast your bread, and then slice it long ways into triangles. Next add your fruit. Here I used some chopped apple and satsuma slices for the flames. Any fruit would work though – bananas, strawberries, mango, pineapple – the list is endless!
And here is little man gobbling up his torches! He told me he had fire in his belly 🙂
Olympic Fruity Rings
There are five rings that are used to symbolise the Olympic Games and they are made up of five colours – blue, yellow, black, green, and red. Each coloured ring represents a world continent: Africa, Asia, America, Europe and Oceania. For our five rings I use fruit, but anything would work here. If you have a fussy veggie eater then perhaps try a mix of peppers, carrot, cucumber and some black olives or red cabbage?
Winner Winner Golden Dinner! No fun food would be complete without a gold medal either!
And finally, we turned this plate of veggies into a….
weightlifting savoury snack 🙂
So there you go, Rio 2016 inspired fun food for the little ones 🙂 Enjoyed this post? Don’t forget to pin the pics for later 🙂 Or follow me on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for more fun food photos and ideas 🙂
