Ingredients (serves 2):
- 2 medium peaches, or tinned peach halves
- 1/2 lemon
- 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, or mixed spice
- 1 tsp clear honey
- 12 raspberries, fresh or frozen
- 1 small pot of thick low fat Greek yogurt or fromage frais (peach or raspberry flavour)
- 1 sprig of fresh mint leaves, washed
- Preheat the oven to 180°C / 160°C fan / gas mark 4.
- Remove the skin from the peaches. If it doesn’t peel off easily, dip the peach in boiling water for 30 seconds. The skin should now slide off easily. Cut the peach in half and twist to separate the halves and remove the stone
- Place the peach halves, cut-side up, in a small ovenproof dish. Grate the lemon zest over the peaches. Squeeze the juice from the lemon and pour over the peaches.
- Sprinkle the peaches with the cinnamon or mixed spice, and drizzle with honey.
- Cover the dish with foil and bake for about 15 minutes, then scatter over the raspberries, re-cover with foil and return to the oven for another 5 minutes.
- Serve hot or cold with yogurt or fromage frais. Garnish with mint if you have any going spare!

A traffic light system is used on nutrition labels to make it easier to see which foods and drinks are lower in calories, fat, sugar and salt. Try and choose more ‘greens’ and ‘ambers’ and fewer ‘reds’, and stick to smaller portions of ‘reds’.
Just because a recipe or a food has a red traffic light doesn’t mean you shouldn’t eat it. Understanding why a food or recipe might have a red light can be helpful. For example oily fish is high in total fat and so any recipe containing oily fish is likely to be ‘red’ for fat. But it is recommended that we eat oily fish at least once a week because the type of fat it contains is beneficial for our health.
% Reference Intakes are also shown. Reference Intakes are guidelines about the approximate amount of particular nutrients and energy required for a healthy diet (based on an average-sized woman doing an average amount of physical activity). Most children will require less than these Reference Intakes. The contribution of one serving of a food or drink to the Reference Intake for each nutrient is expressed as a percentage.
