Kids eating healthily / Personalised Chopping Boards

Meals in my home have been finally revamped. We now use less oil to cook our foods and have added more veggies! So far the changes have gone down well with the children as they’re not really fussy-eaters. But the challenge was coming up with new and healthy meals ideas to make. Because of this I have decided to research different healthy recipes to feed my family.

Here is one that is a winner at home and maybe it can be yours too:

Chicken schnitzel with coleslaw

For the schnitzel

  • 4 small chicken breasts
  • 3 tbsp grated Parmesan
  • 100g flour
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 75g dried breadcrumbs (we used panko)
  • 75ml vegetable oil

For the coleslaw

  • 300g white cabbages, shredded
  • 1 large carrot, peeled and grated
  • 6 spring onions, sliced diagonally
  • 1 red-skinned apple, grated
  • 150g pot natural yogurt
  • juice ½ lemon
  • 2 tsp English mustard


  1. For the coleslaw, get your child to mix all the ingredients in a large bowl. Season a little and set aside.
  2. Place a layer of cling film on your work surface and pop the chicken fillets on top. Cover with another piece of cling film and, using a rolling pin, ask your child to bash the chicken until it is 2-3mm thick.
  3. Put the flour on a plate and season, then put the egg on another plate. Get your child to dip the chicken in the flour to coat, then into the egg.
  4. Mix together the breadcrumbs and Parmesan in a shallow bowl, then ask your child to toss the chicken in the mixture to completely coat in the crumbs. Put the chicken on a plate and chill in the fridge until ready to eat if you’re not cooking them straight away.
  5. Heat the oil in a large frying pan over a fairly high heat and cook the chicken schnitzels two at a time. Sizzle them for 2-3 mins each side until completely golden, then lift out onto kitchen paper to drain. You can keep them warm in a low oven while you cook the rest. Serve with the coleslaw.


I’ve had a few chopping boards in my life, from wood to Polyethylene, right down to glass. All have managed to suffice throughout the years that I have had them. However, I am currently using a silicone chopping board. It does all that it is intended for and it’s very quick and easy to clean; but I only tend to use it to make my children’s meals with and rarely for anything else.

Now with a little help from the world wide web, I have managed to find a site that allows you to personalise your very own chopping board! Now with this site you can have your very own chopping board in many different shapes and designs. You can even personalise it with your name and/or special message. You can also choose the material you want your board to made out of. Their main three are oak, bamboo and slate.

My favourite design from their site is their Personalised Surname & Date Chopping Board. Which you can take a look at through this link:
