Healthy movie snacks

So we just got our DVD player out the cupboard, dusted it off and decided to try a family movie afternoon. There has been so much rain recently and with it being school holidays lots of our usual toddler groups have stopped. So now seemed a good time to curl up and relive the Disney classics. Yes it’s ‘easy’ parenting but on the other hand it’s really nice to have your kids snuggled on your knee under a blanket, laughing and having fun. So obviously the obligatory snacks for all occasions had to be sourced and what better than popcorn right?…but with extras. (Ps our health visitor told me off for letting Arthur eat whole nuts, so I’ll leave that part to your own judgement call. He eats them under my supervision) 

Healthy movie snacks 

Ingredients 

  • Popcorn
  • Handful of seeds (pumpkin & sunflower)
  • Flaked almonds 
  • Whole almonds 
  • Raisins 
  • Dried mango
  • Dried apricots
  • Dried cranberries 
  • Cinnamon 

Method

Make your popcorn (or tip it out the packet) I made mine so it was unsalted then sprinkled over a little cinnamon. 

Lightly toast the seeds and flaked almonds in a pan. Once they start to pop and shine take them off the heat. 

Chop the mango and apricots.

Mix everything together in a bowl and eat! 

You can add anything to this, flakes of coconut, banana chips, nuts…whatever you have or feel like. I haven’t put amounts either because it’s just a case of making how much you like.
