Pedi­a­tri­cians and den­tists insist that sug­ary treats are harm­ful to chil­dren’s health. Our recipes for healthy sweets will help to please the baby with deli­cious treats.

Almost all chil­dren in the world love sweets. But doc­tors strong­ly rec­om­mend lim­it­ing the con­sump­tion of sweets by chil­dren. After all, sug­ar not only spoils del­i­cate chil­dren’s teeth and con­tributes to the devel­op­ment of child­hood obe­si­ty. The biggest dan­ger is that all indus­tri­al­ly pro­duced sweets con­tain a huge amount of preser­v­a­tives, dyes, sta­bi­liz­ers, emul­si­fiers and oth­er not always use­ful addi­tives.

But some­times it can be very dif­fi­cult to refuse such a sim­ple joy to a lit­tle man. So how do you pam­per your baby with yum­my treats with­out harm­ing their health? Teach your baby to thor­ough­ly rinse their mouth with water after each meal to get rid of the rem­nants of treats. Well, pre­pare the “can­dy” your­self from healthy and tasty ingre­di­ents.

We offer you some sim­ple recipes for sweets for babies, which will not only not harm a small body, but also give it health and ener­gy.

Dried fruit sweets

To make sweets you will need:

  • 100 g prunes
  • 100 g of dried apri­cots
  • 100 g raisins
  • 100 g of any nuts (wal­nuts, almonds, cashews, etc.)
  • 1 st. l. Ted­dy bear
  • sesame seeds for sprin­kling


1. Peel prunes and dried apri­cots from stones. Wash dried fruits thor­ough­ly under run­ning water. Fill with water and leave for an hour to swell the fruit.

2. Drain the water and squeeze out the fruits. Mix them with nuts and pass through a fine meat grinder.

3. Add hon­ey to the result­ing mass, and mix thor­ough­ly until the mix­ture is com­plete­ly homo­ge­neous.

4. Roll up small balls from the result­ing mass and roll them in sesame seeds. Sweets are ready!

It should also be not­ed that the ingre­di­ents in the recipe for this sweet are eas­i­ly replace­able, depend­ing on the taste pref­er­ences of your baby. You can use almost any dried fruit (such as figs or dates) or omit hon­ey if your child has aller­gic reac­tions to this prod­uct. And as a pow­der, you can use gran­u­lat­ed cocoa.

fruit souf­flé

fruit soufflé

To pre­pare a beau­ti­ful, tasty and healthy dessert, you will need the fol­low­ing ingre­di­ents:

  • 200 g of any fruit or berries (you can use a mix­ture)
  • 150 g fat 30% cream
  • 5–10 g gelatin
  • sug­ar or hon­ey to taste (for old­er chil­dren)


1. Dilute gelatin with chilled boiled water. Leave for an hour to “gain”.

2. Grind fruits or berries with a meat grinder or blender. Mix the result­ing mass with sug­ar or hon­ey. Don’t over-sweet­en the mix­ture.

3. Whip the cream with a mix­er until a dense mass is obtained.

4. Put the con­tain­er with swollen gelatin on a small fire. With­out bring­ing to a boil, remove from the stove. Mix cream and fruit mass.

Souf­flé can be served both warm and in the form of jel­ly, hav­ing pre­vi­ous­ly cooled in molds and dec­o­rat­ed with berries. For the prepa­ra­tion of sweets in the win­ter, you can use frozen berries and fruits.

“Chil­dren’s” ice cream

“Cold sweet” is adored by all chil­dren. There­fore, such a dessert will espe­cial­ly please your child.

For cook­ing you will need:

  • 0.5 l 30% cream
  • 100–200 g of any fruit or berries
  • 1 h. l. ter­ry cedar
  • hon­ey or con­densed milk to taste
  • nuts for sprin­kling


1. Whip the cream with a mix­er until a thick mass is obtained.

2. Grind fruits or berries in a blender.

3. Mix cream, fruit mass and add con­densed milk or hon­ey to taste. Stir gen­tly until a homo­ge­neous mass is obtained.

4. Add grat­ed zest and mix again.

5. Place the mass in the freez­er for 20 min­utes. Take out and mix again.

6. Put the sweet­ness back into the freez­er and leave to hard­en.

7. Chop the nuts. Sprin­kle ice cream with nuts and gar­nish with berries.

As in pre­vi­ous recipes, the ingre­di­ents in the recipe can be changed, tak­ing into account all the char­ac­ter­is­tics of your baby’s body.

And do not for­get that even healthy home­made sweets will not bring ben­e­fits when con­sumed in large quan­ti­ties. So, pam­per­ing your child, know the mea­sure. And then he will be not only hap­py, but also healthy!

Enjoy your meal!
