Beetroots are a great alternative to potatoes when you’re looking for a savoury snack for the lunchbox. Not only are they lower in GI they’re packed with folate (folic acid) which is beneficial for tissue growth, especially that in the spinal cord of a growing baby.

Serves: 6  |   Preparation time: 5 minutes  |  Cooking time: 15 minutes

Ingredients:

4 large beetroots
3 tbsp coconut oil

Step 1: Preheat your oven to 195C and line two large baking trays. Wash the skin of the beetroots well and thinly slice them using a mandolin or food processor. If you have neither, use a knife but cut them very-very thin.
