WITH parents across the country struggling to come up with ways to keep their kids entertained during lockdown, Jacqueline Jossa has come to the rescue.

Celebrity parent and queen of the jungle has teamed up with streaming service NOW TV to create incredible tea party recipes that are kid-friendly and so easy.

Whipping up some whimsical creations, families tuning in can expect to see Jacqueline making a hummus vegetable patch even Peter Rabbit couldn’t resist.

Other recipes (see below) include a pineapple smoothie SpongeBob SquarePants would be seen slurping.

You can also make magical mallow lollies that would have the My Little Pony gang ‘neighing’ with delight.

Families can recreate their very own TeaV Party at home using the seven easy-to-follow recipe cards and supporting colouring-in sheets available to download on the NOW TV Facebook page.

Jacqueline Jossa commented on her family’s fun-filled afternoon, “The NOW TV Kids TeaV Party brings some of my girls’ favourite TV shows to life and is something all the family can do together.

“I’m no cooking pro and often have to wing it, that’s why we’ve created these 7-fuss free and easy to follow recipes for everyone!”

Jacqueline's TeaV Party recipes…

Peter Rabbit Grow Your Own Hummous Plant Pots


  • Two pots of hummous
  • Selection of vegetables


Fill small plastic plant pots with hummous until it almost reaches the rim.

Then "plant' the veggies in the top so that they appear as though they are growing.

You can use sprigs of parsley on top of the carrots to act as stalks if you wish.

My Little Pony Sparkly Mallows


  • One bag of large marshmallows
  • 400g white chocolate
  • Food colouring of your choice
  • Hundreds of thousands


Push a paper straw into the bottom of each marshmallow.

Break up the white chocolate and melt it in the microwave checking it every ten seconds – try not to overheat it.

Divide the chocolate into several different bowls before adding the food colouring and stirring.

Dip your marshmallows into the chocolate before sprinkling with hundreds of thousands or any edible decoration of your choice.

Stand them up in a glass and leave them to set for 15 minutes in the fridge.

  • 150ml of fruit juice 
  • 4 tbsp of plain yoghurt
