Making and Baking Healthy Snacks

Making and Baking Healthy Snacks

I have always enjoyed baking and especially making healthy snacks. Just like Busy Izzy does.  She enjoys making healthy snacks for her friends, when they visit her at Nix & Nax. "Help yourself to my snaxalicious snacks", says Izzy to her friends.

Do you love to cook?  I do and Busy Izzy does too.

When my sister Elaine and I were really young, around 6 and 7 years of age, we would make huts at the back of our house on the farm.  Sometimes, our dad would help us out by putting up old sacks to make walls for our hut.  When the walls were up, Elaine and I would get busy, making mud pies, mud quiches, mud cakes... basically mud everything. It was lots of fun playing with mud.  

We always enjoyed watching our mum cooking and making healthy snacks in the kitchen. 

We could tell that our mum was a wonderful cook and our dad was as well. The food was delicious and we often asked for seconds.

We quickly learned how to be pretty good makers and bakers of healthy food too. Just like Busy Izzy, our mum always knew exactly what to do.

Busy Izzy and Friends are much more than wonderfully entertaining children's picture books filled with exciting adventures.  These books for children have ethical and moral stories too. There are songs, interactive videos, fun songs and videos about being a good friend, healthy food, vegetables and fruit songs about fruit salad.  Friendship songs, fun songs, songs about being sensible too, and one of Izzy's friends is a secret-agent, her name is Skye and we have a song for her too. Oh, and an all new stage show for kids...

Modern Mo Li, is musical who loves to play the blues and Izzy's friends, Mathematic Max, Sensible Steven, Even Evan, Worried Warren, Talkative Tess and Bobby, who can be a little bit bossy, are wonderful and generous kids who love to spend time with their friends...and of course there is Izzy's, adopted little stray from the SPCA, Newly Truly "Who's the lucky rescue pup at Nix & Nax, who's everybody's favourite little friend."  These children's Picture Books, song and videos have something and everything for everyone.

Busy Izzy and Friends on YouTube:

Do you eat your veggies? Busy Izzy and her friends do, they love to eat healthy fruits and vegetables because they know it keeps them strong and healthy too.

Busy Izzy's veggie garden is at the back of Nix & Nax. There is a compost bin full of scraps from when Izzy makes and bakes healthy snacks. The compost bin has a little red wiggler worm called 'Wormee', a compost-vermi, and his friends who turn the scraps into vermi-compost. Just a taste of rotting waste, they all move in. They're a positive advantage in Busy Izzy's compost bin.

Izzy has a beehive with honey bees. These hard working littlies pollinate the fruits and vegetables. Pollination occurs when insects such as bees visit flowers, collecting nectar and pollen. Pollen is rubbed onto the insect and is then rubbed off onto the next flower the insect visits.

Kids Just LOVE Busy Izzy.
Kids Just LOVE Busy Izzy.

We are thrilled to hear from parents and teachers of little ones about how much they love Busy Izzy and the Busy Izzy and Friends, children's picture books .  We love seeing the kids dressed as their favourite character.  

Here is 4 year old Zara, dressed as Busy Izzy, whom she loves by the way.  Her mum, said that Zara asks to have the Busy Izzy and Friends books read to her before bedtime. 

In Zara's mum's words,

"I read the books to Zara every night and she just loves them.  I have observed how  Zara appreciates Izzy's qualities and says, "When I grow up I want to be kind, thoughtful, helpful, and a wonderful friend just like Busy Izzy is to all her friends". I had to buy her a little puppet puppy just like Newly Truly, who is Izzy's clever rescue pup.

The Busy Izzy and Friends books are a must for all little ones, I love them as they teach the importance of empathy, kindness and being a great friend."

Thank you Zara's mum.
