Popcorn is a fun and easy snack for tamariki and did you know it’s also
high in fibre? So easy and cheap to make yourself, and much healthier too.
1. Pour olive or canola oil into a pot, covering the bottom by about 1cm in
2. Put three corn kernels into the pot
3. Turn element onto a high heat and wait until the three corn kernels have
popped- this is how you know the oil is at the right temperature
4. Pour the rest of the corn kernels into the pot and put the lid on
5. Jiggle the pot back and forth over the element and hear the popcorn pop!
