Organix Rescue Hangry Kids + Useful Recipes

Organix re-fuelling tired kids after a paddle and play at the park

I don’t know about you but since becoming a parent, having enough snacks on hand is a must.  A MUST.  Have I not had enough snacks, I’ve regretted it.  No one wants to be on the wrong side of hangry children, am I right?

Organix is one of our favourite healthy snack brands as a family.  Why?  They’re full of goodness (happy parents/ well fed kids), they’re tasty (occupied children/ happy parents)  and you can take them anywhere thanks to the no-mess packaging (happiness all-round).

The children’s favourites are definitely the ‘crisps’, particularly the Sweetcorn Rings.  There is ‘nothing unessary’ in these goodies, or any of the range in fact and they’ve saved me from a meltdown on many an occasion.  Some of the other packs are well-loved too, like the Carrot Sticks but the flavouring on those can coat their fingers so be ready with a wet wipe (aren’t we always)?!

We crammed a load of the snacks into our (massive) bag when we recently went to Brighton Pride too and had an awesome time.  Always be prepared folks, always have bribes snacks.

Something Useful I wanted to Share

Organix have got a healthy and easy recipe page on their site now too, so check them out at www.organix.com/recipes.  I got inspired my the rainbow wraps and did my version of them (shop bought wraps with loads of veggies, and some with cheese and meat too).  They’re so easy.  We rolled them out for the children’s lunch and at a recent get together with friends too.

The Recipe – Rainbow Wrap

Organix Healthy Recipes – colour and nutrition

Ingredients

For the wrap – if you are far superior to me and want to make them yourself:

100g buckwheat flour
1 organic egg
300ml organic milk (or milk alternative – rice/oat/nut milk)
3 tbsp water
A little olive or coconut oil for frying

 

For the rainbow filling

A couple of spoonfuls of cream cheese or hummus

Your choice of veggies and filling – we liked rainbow tomatoes, in lots of different colours, peppers and spinach.

Organix recommend ½ cooked beetroot, ¼ red pepper, 1 small carrot, ¼ yellow pepper, 5 cm chunk cucumber.

How to make

Step 1

To make the wrap, simply whisk all ingredients (except the oil) together until very smooth. Ideally use an electric whisk if you have one.

Step 2

Allow batter to stand for about half an hour.

Step 3

Heat a little olive oil or coconut oil in a 6 inch, non-stick frying pan. Ladle a scoop of batter into the pan – just enough to cover the pan surface, so the wrap is just less than 5mm thick. Tip the pan so the batter covers the surface, and allow to cook over a medium heat for a couple of minutes.

Using salami and cheese too

Step 4

Use a fish slice to carefully see if it is cooked on the bottom. Once it’s cooked on one side, slide the fish slice under the wrap and flip it over. Cook the other side for a couple more minutes until golden. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.

Step 5

Allow the wraps to cool on a wire rack, or if you prefer them warm they can be kept warm in a low oven.

Step 6

Prepare the vegetables by cutting them into thin matchsticks. The carrot and beetroot could also be grated if preferred.

Step 7

Spread a layer of cream cheese or hummus over the whole wrap.

Step 8

Place the vegetables on top of the wrap in strips arranged by colour. Fold up the top and bottom of the wrap, then tightly roll, spreading a little extra cheese on the last bit of wrap to help ‘glue’ it in place if needed.

Step 9

Slice in half at an angle so that you can see the range of rainbow colours then pack in an airtight box for your picnic.

If you make them yourself any leftover wraps can used the next day or frozen – layer greaseproof paper between each wrap before freezing. The bean spread can be eaten as a dip with chopped veg.

You can buy Organix at most supermarkets and leading chemists such as Boots, Sainsburys and Waitrose.
