Today’s post is a collection of healthy homemade snacks recipes which can be made and stored for 3 days to 15 days(depending on the recipe). I share my healthy meal plan and snack menu on my page and in my FB community

They are 100% safer, better, healthier for babies(minus sweetener and salt), toddlers and kids.


I would suggest them as the best alternative to store-bought packed snacks since they are totally made without unhealthy ingredients and additives/preservatives. Few of you might be puzzled that I have included even deep fried items and tagged them as healthy. Deep fried foods, if made at home with the right oil and if had in moderation is no harm for anybody (except for specific medical conditions). Homemade murukku /chakli made with coconut oil is definitely healthier than any packet snack you get outside (even if claimed baked/zero oil etc). This is my humble view.

Deep fry foods when taken occasionally and in moderation will not create any harm, provided your lifestyle is healthy otherwise and you don’t suffer from any other clinical conditions which strictly puts you under “Zero Oil Food”

I have given a link below where a doctor shares his views on the same.
