What do you give your kids for their tea?

I mean the meal you give them between lunch and super. As soon as they come home from school just before they go off to a club, sports or after school classes.

Re: What do you give your kids for their tea?

Wh my children (who are now adults )were small they were always starving when they came home from school .
There was always fresh fruit in the bowl on the table , very often fresh made bread rolls which they would help them selves to and eat just as it was or put cheese , ham or jam into .,, or they might have a bowlful of cereal . 
Maybe a glass of milk or glass full of fruit juice.

Re: What do you give your kids for their tea?

I dont have kids,but when my nieces and nephew are around which range from the age of 3-13 I love baking muffins for them. I found a really basic muffin recipe :

2 cups flour
half a cup sugar
2 teaspoons of baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup of oil
1 egg.

I usually use double amount,now with the flavours you can go haywire. You can leave out the sugar and add bacon and cheese for savoury,or fo a treat add cinnamon,cocoa powder,maybe almond essence. Basically with this recipe you can add anything that pop into your mind. Just always stick to the basic recipe and its always a winner. If you want it a bit moist add youghurt our a bit more milk. Just experiment around!
Have fun thumbsup

I think for us, it was snacks and fruit.

With my daughter it was junk or leftovers. I have tried to replace the junk with fruit. I also don't like her eating leftovers, because if can result in her being full in supper.

Re: What do you give your kids for their tea?

Last meal I cooked for a kid was Mexican Tamales/chimichangas some form of salad. Tried to man him up with some Hot pepper sauce. Mango and vanilla Bavoir for dessert.
As a child I was given real food lots of fish vegetables, we couldn’t afford junk food. Mother cooked (really good) Father and brother fished. Vegetables from the garden, some wild stuff. Local shops, no supermarkets as such.
Good times

Re: What do you give your kids for their tea?

I dnt think that Abdul is talking about a full meal Goose , but just something to sustain the children when they retern from school starving hungry and before they have their supper in the early evening.
