FMTV - Hugo's Snack Plate

Hugo's Snack Plate

Exclusive on FMTV

Series: Kids in the Kitchen | Episode: 3 | Runtime: 03m 45s | Release date: 2019

Whether you’re at home or planning a day out, a snack plate or a packed snack box is always a hit with the littles. At the moment, Hugo’s favorite snack selection includes celery sticks and apple slices dipped into a tahini and maple sauce along with some sultanas and activated tamari almonds.

A dipping sauce is a great way to add extra flavor and to encourage your kids to snack on raw veggie sticks and fruit slices! When it comes to sauces, the options are endless and you can be as creative as you want. Some other great ideas include: nut butter, hummus, cashew cheese, yogurt-based sauces or homemade dips.

Laurentine ten Bosch

Hello Rosalyn, Maple syrup is produced by boiling down sap collected from the sugar maple tree. Pure Maple syrup has a glycemic index of 54 this is defined as having a "medium" index wherein other table sugar has a glycemic index 64. Also, this syrup is significantly rich in calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, copper, and manganese. Another benefit of maple syrup nutrition is that it impacts your blood sugar levels a bit less drastically than table sugar does. Hope this helps :) ~ Joyce@FMTV

I love the idea of adding some maple syrup to the tahini! Is there a video tutorial on how to activate almonds, as well as a recipe on how to make the tamari almonds? Thnx.

Hello Anabela. You may find this helpful https://www.fmtv.com/watch/activated-nuts. We don't have a tamari almonds recipe but we'll hopefully add it in the future. :) ~ Karelle

We're about to move back to Australia after 10.5 years living as expats overseas. So we havent raised kids in Australia (we have three school aged kids). Is it ok to pack almonds in the kids school lunch boxes with the nut allergy policies in place? Love the tahini option as dipping sauce as at home we usually use the nut butters.

Hi Larissa, welcome back! It really depends on the school, however, if they have nut allergy policies in place then I would say almonds would not be allowed! But maybe just check with your school they are all different. Hope this helps :) ~ Iris
