With the summer holidays in full swing and the sun shining its a perfect time to get the kids out of the house and off their computers. A picnic is a perfect chance to get some fresh air whilst having good wholesome fun. I recently discovered Pik-Nik a mozzarella cheese snack in a peelable cheese portion. I decided with the help of my daughter to get creative in the kitchen and use these tasty treats to make some healthy and fun food for our picnic.
Creating Pik-Nik Mini Pizzas
I wanted to create some healthy mini pizzas as an alternative to sandwiches. I used the Pik-Nik cheese as a topping on our pizzas as they are made with 38% protein with no sugar. It is made from fresh milk with no artificial colours or flavourings. So a win win for parents whilst been super tasty for kids. Sienna enjoyed getting creative topping the pizza base with tomato puree, mozzarella and topped with Pik-Nik Twillers which we chopped and sienna enjoyed peeling, although some did end up getting eaten during the process.
What makes Pik-Nik stand out from the rest
Every peelable cheese stick is enriched with Vitamin D, unlocking even more support for the body. Vitamin D is known as the sunshine vitamin which helps support the body’s normal immune functions, fighting off infections and increasing recovery times. It is convenient as a picnic snack and a quick and easy snack for fun days out without been messy as you open peel and eat. Each stick contains a glass of milk and is made using milk from mainly grass-fed cows with no artificial colours or additives. It is suitable for vegetarian as Pik-Nik’s are made using vegetarian rennet. It is a source of calcium, protein, vitamin D, A and E which makes it a healthy treat for my most precious little one.
