Get Your Kids Eating Sprouts

Brussel Sprout Crisps, a nutritious seasonal snack

Brussels sprout crisps are a festive tradition in our house – they're quick, tasty and nutritious!

Tilly and Florence actually don’t mind brussels sprouts, but a lot of my friends’ children won’t touch them. This recipe is a great way to encourage your little ones to try them.

The crisps are great for baby-led weaning, and also as a really moreish snack for adults, too!

You will need:

  • A bag of brussels sprouts (1lb)
  • 1-2 tbsp grated parmesan
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Squeeze of lemon juice and/or grated lemon peel (optional, some children may not like this)
  • Fine black pepper (optional)

How to make them:

  1. Preheat the oven to 170°C
  2. Peel the sprouts, separating the leaves
  3. Mix the sprout leaves together in a large bowl with the oil, parmesan, lemon and pepper, then separate out onto a baking sheet
  4. Place in the oven for 12 minutes, then turn to ensure they don’t burn, and bake for another 10-15 minutes. Keep checking them as they can catch!
