We have a dessert for every day of the week to keep pint-sized foodies happy. Better yet, they can make it themselves!

Don’t be fooled into thinking your kids are too young for cooking. Even five-year-olds are perfectly capable of getting in the kitchen to whip up a delicious treat. I’ve never met one yet who can’t prise the lid off an ice-cream tub.

Let’s be honest, it’s not the dessert they struggle with, it’s the clean up. #mumlife

Here’s 8 delicious and super easy desserts for kids

1. Easy Dessert Dirt Cups

The kids wont be able to get enough of these and the good news is, you can cheat your way to a dirt cup outcome REAL QUICK. Simply peel the lid off a Yogo chocolate custard, crush a couple of choccy bikkies over the top and add a lolly worm to the mix. Voila!

2. DIY Banana Pops

One of my personal favourites, nothing beats a choc-dipped frozen banana pop covered in crushed peanuts. Pre-freeze the bananas and let the kids go to town creating their own delicious, semi-healthy fun dessert.
