Who doesn’t love a little treat at Christmas time? My boys love to help me in the kitchen, but at ages 4yrs, 3yrs and 1yr old – I don’t particularly want them operating the oven or using sharp knives.
This delicious Christmas treat is one part cute, one part healthy, one part child-friendly and one part Christmas magic!
You can make your own pikelets, but you could totally use store bought pikelets if you didn’t have time to whip some up from scratch. You can choose to top your pikelets with any nut butter or chocolate based spread. My kids will even devour them with a little avocado chocolate spread (yay for an extra serve of veggies for the day).
Depending on the ages of your children, you may wish to cut the strawberries into ‘noses’ for them or allow them to do it themselves.

I’ve been the creative director and social media manager behind the food/lifestyle blog GoodFoodWeek for 8 years. I’m a stay-at-home Mum of three little boys, who has left the corporate communications world to raise a family.
GoodFoodWeek started in 2008 as a way of sharing recipes with uni friends and family who were spread near and far. It has evolved over the years to contain my ramblings as I’ve searched for a house, planned the perfect veggie patch, stumbled through farmer’s markets with my eye half open (because you need to be there at 6am to get the fresh eggs), had babies, gathered family and friends around a shared table, laughed out loud and enjoyed life to the fullest!
