Homemade Mini Milks


There are lots of things I am trying to teach my son before he starts school in September. To get him ready for being a big boy at big boy school. One of them is to use a knife and fork. For such a long time I have set the table with a spoon and a fork but now he is almost 4 it’s time to know how to use a knife! 

We made these sweet healthy lollies as a way to involve him in a simple recipe and he was very proud of his cutting skills! It’s good hand eye coordination practice and teaches them to take care and be precise. You can also use it as a safety lesson about being very careful with knives!

They wrote on wide lolly sticks which fruit was in which lolly and then we added milk to half of them and yoghurt to the others. There was no need for any added sweeteners!

Leave your lollies in the freezer for 4 hours and enjoy. The kiwi was my favourite.

A delicious way to help with motor skills, growing up skills with a healthy treat as a reward!
