Easy recipes for kids

If you've run the gauntlet recently on an essential supermarket run, chances are you struck unlucky when it came to eggs and flour. Fear not: your lockdown 2.0 kitchen-based fun with the kiddos can still go ahead thanks to these 10 easy recipes that need not a whiff of egg nor a scrap of flour.


1. Lemon cheesecake


The discovery of this no-bake easy lemon cheesecake by Charlotte's Lively Kitchen (pictured above) has not only made self-isolating way easier, but it's made for a fun, tasty time in our own kitchen too. Warning: One slice will never, ever be enough.


2. Flourless chocolate chip cookies

We did a whole guide to ice lolly recipes in the summer, and although it might be more hot chocolate weather than ice pop weather, these mouthwatering ice lollies by Tesco Real Food are cool to make AND eat. Add a dash of rum to heat things up when it comes to a grown up version.


8. Caramel popcorn
