BITE-SIZE IFTAR FOR PINT-SIZE FASTERS
Your little ones will not only enjoy helping make these dishes – they’ll love eating them, too
When I was a little girl growing up in the UK, I remember fasting for the very first time at the age of six. Not one to do things by halves, my decision coincided with the height of summer, when the fasts are long and it’s extremely difficult for anyone who has never done it before, let alone a child. However, nothing made me happier than feeling the true essence of Ramadan alongside my family and being a part of it. Since having children of my own, they have also followed tradition and all started fasting at around the same age, even though they have never been forced to.
I’m a big advocate of children trying new things and exotic flavours but I find that a more simplistic approach is key during this season. Familiar foods and comforting flavours are a recipe for success and given the minimum fuss approach, all the following dishes are quick and easy to prepare. Check out this winning menu that will light up their little faces and make them feel truly rewarded for all their effort!
