Three Easy and Delicious Muffins for Kids

The importance of healthy lunches at school.

The kids are back to school and so is my daughter. She is so active and her school activities are so many. So she definitely needs a proper-high vitamin and healthy foods or snacks for lunch. School lunches are a major source of energy for our kids, they spend most of their time in school so it will be great if we can prepare some healthy and delicious snacks for them.

The foods that we pack for our children will give them nutrients they need to learn and play at school. The healthy lunches will help the children concentrate more in class and not feel tired. Here are three easy muffin recipes you may try for school lunch:

Three Muffin Recipes

Strawberry Jam Muffin

Strawberry jam is my daughter's favorite jam, you may replace it with any of your favorite fruit jam. If you give the kids their own favorite food's taste, they will eat their lunches. I always ask her what kind of food she'd like to have for tomorrow's lunch, so I can prepare it today, and usually she'll eat the foods she's asked. It's a deal between us :)

2 cups flour (1 cup = 128 gram)
3 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg beaten
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup strawberry jam

Preheat oven 200 degrees C  (or about 400 degrees F)

Stir together : flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Beat together egg, milk and oil in separate bowl. Pour it to the dry ingredients. Mix quickly and lighty until moist, don't beat. Gently stir in the strawberry jam.

Pour the batter into muffin pan 3/4 height and bake it for 25 minutes or until golden.

Servings : 12
