Every parent wants their kid to eat healthy foods without a fuss. And every parent knows that’s not always possible. But it’s never too late to lay the groundwork for this at home.

People who ENJOY meals, love cooking and sharing both with people they love. Even if it’s just a bowl of couscous.
Couscous is so quick and easy to prepare, and makes a brilliant base for a whole range of simple meals. Perfect for a speedy family lunch or dinner.

Encouraging your kids to eat a nutritious, balanced diet early on is important for a number of reasons. Ensuring they get the right vitamins and minerals in their diet will help them grow and develop optimally. They are also more likely to be energised and motivated, supporting their ability to learn. Educating them on healthy eating during childhood will also help them make healthier choices as they become adults. And this is why the range of Martino Couscous products for Kids was developed.

If your child is a fussy eater, getting them involved in the preparation process can help. Ask them to choose what goes into their menu and then let them help you cook it. Rewarding them when they try something new can also help to encourage them to be more adventurous. Martino’s Kids products are specially designed to cook fast and easy, making them ideal for this purpose.

Simple couscous recipes can be the way to get your child excited about couscous and eating! And here are our favourites:

Couscous Porridge 

Few children are going to turn down a ball of warm, sweet porridge. Martino’s take on couscous porridge is delicious, simple and ideal for an excellent, light and nutritious breakfast. It is a precious source of energy, useful for athletes, children, pregnant women, convalescents and the elderly.

This is a great recipe to get the kids involved with cooking. Even young kids can help by washing the salad at the start and mixing all the ingredients together, while older kids can help with chopping, too.

Couscous Cookies

Everyone loves cookies. And how can you not love this mini, crunchy dessert you can eat with your hands and dip in your coffee, your milk or your tea? Cookies can make a child happy and can cheer up a friend, not to mention they come in all sorts of flavors, textures, sizes, and shapes.

There is a cookie for every personality and predilection, every mood and motivation, and this recipe brings you a soft and chewy, delicious cookie recipe with chocolate and couscous that will delight all your senses and will leave you wanting countless more.

Couscous pizza

Pizza is a no-brainer. There is no kid that will pass on this treat! And if you can serve a beloved food in a version that has half the calories and fat – that’s just an added bonus!

Today we propose a simple yet healthy alternative to the traditional pizza. A couscous pizza topped with all the Mediterranean flavors like oregano, tomato sauce, olive oil, and fresh olives. This recipe is ideal for all those who want to enjoy a warm piece of pizza alongside a glass of wine without having to worry about the gluten and calories in the dough.

It is common for children to stick to what they know – if they like two types of food, it is likely they will ask for that every day. But don’t eliminate it completely; try to incorporate couscous with other foods in their meal.
