Fast food vs healthy dishes:

 Eating habits of kids change as they grow. The toddler period is one of the toughest age to handle as they start asking foods seen in commercials or some colorful food items from food courts or foods what others eat. The war between fast food against healthy dishes is often won by the former.

When my son started playschool four months back, I started exploring my kitchen more. I tried out many recipes to suit his taste buds. As usual, many recipes were utter flop and few become hits.

After going through all my food recipes, don’t judge me as an organic mom 🙂

I do bribe my three year old son with chocolates, chips and ice creams, but I make sure that I feed him a lot of homemade food, veggies and fruits. I am trying my best to raise him as a healthy eater.

But it is a tough thing to do. I am sure many of you moms agree with me.

Today, I would like to help out moms who are trying to get their kids to eat healthy.

Here are the mega hit food recipes loved by my little man, Rithvik. The good news is that, most of the foods listed here are easy to cook and can go into your kid’s school snack box. Not just that, they make healthy party snacks for kids too!

#1. AVOCADO ROTI  

healthy recipes for kids

What?? Avooocaaadooo rotiii??

Yes, mommies, you heard it right.

To be frank, this is one of the fruits that I tasted for the first time, once I moved abroad post-marriage. Though avocado tastes bland, it has abundant health benefits. So somehow I wanted to include this in Rithvik’s diet. I had heard of mashes, but he was too old for that. I tried smoothies but he doesn’t like it much.

Recently, I tried this recipe and it turned out to be super yummy dish. This is a perfect healthy food for your family.

What you require

  • Ripe avocado – 1
  • Wheat flour – 1 and 1/4 cup

  • Ghee – to cook rotis

Method

  • Peel the outer skin of ripe avocado and take the pulp. You can do this without peeling the skin too. For that start by cutting the avocado in half and scoop out the pulp using spoon or ice cream scoop.
  • Smash the pulp nicely using a fork.
  • Add the lemon juice and red chilli powder to the avocado pulp and mix it well.
  • In another bowl take wheat flour, curd, oil and add the smashed avocado to it.
  • Take enough water to knead and dissolve required salt to it.
  • Start kneading to a smooth dough.
  • After kneading, drizzle few drops of oil and coat the dough.
  • Let it sit covered for 15 min.
  • Make lemon sized balls out of the dough, dust it and flatten using rolling pin.
  • Heat up a tawa and cook the rotis.
  • Serve warm with your kid’s favorite curry or curd.

#2. BROCCOLI PATTIES

healthy recipes for kids

Broccoli is one of the healthiest vegetables there is, which is very rich in dietary fibre, iron, omega 3 fatty acids and so many other nutrients.

But unfortunately, this is not a favorite of my son.

Few days back, I saw a video on how to prepare broccoli patties. I gave it a try with slight modification. Here it goes.

  • Potato – 1 or 2
  • Egg – 1

  • In a bowl take the ground broccoli, mashed potato, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder, salt, lemon juice and mix well to combine.
