Junk Free Snack Box Recipes for kids(School/Day care)

Kids Snack Box Recipes:

The greatest puzzles to which we never get the right answer would be “What to pack for kids lunch box/snack box?”.We will have a huge decision-making process involved wherein we need to consider kid’s likes/ dislikes, availability of ingredients, ease of self-feeding at school, nutritional demands and a lot more. After thinking of so many of these we need to work on presenting them to kids well and ensuring that they have it with no mess at school/daycare and completely finish them.

My little boy has the habit of asking me daily for the menu details before taking his school bag. He would be equally interested the previous day to give his own menu too. I have compiled a set of simple snack options which can be a mid-morning/ evening snack for kids above 1.5 years. All of these are totally junk free and 100% healthy Kids Snack Box Recipes(white ingredients free). I hope you would find them useful. Kindly bookmark this page as this section would be regularly updated.

Tomorrow is Christmas and I am sure all of you are done with your preparations.

Ellu Urundai/Sesame Laddu

Ellu Urundai/Sesame Laddu

This is a traditional recipe from my grandmother. I remember the days when she used to make it in ural(large version of mortar & pestel). This is a healthy snack option for your toddlers and family. This is a must have food for lactating mothers. The sesame seeds are so rich in calcium and it aids in increasing the quality of breast milk. Sesame seeds are recommended for babies above 1 year. Sesame seeds are not recommended for babies with nut allergy and family history of sesame seeds. Have a word with your doctor for any doubts. Continue reading “Ellu Urundai/Sesame Laddu”

vazhaippoo vadai

Vazhaipoo Vadai|Plantain/Banana Flower fritters

Vazhaipoo Vadai:
This is one of the dishes which came out so well in my first attempt. It’s very difficult even glance any vegetables like plantain pith, its flower in Hubli. We found some 10 vazhaippoo in our weekly market all of a sudden. I have never tasted it till then. To make me eat it somehow my husband suggested this snack. It was an absolute random attempt that day. Banana flower is so good for women. It cures irregular periods and must have for pregnant & lactating women. This can be your toddlers’ healthy snack option too. You might fear the gastric effect because of using chana dhal. That’s why I have used hing and garlic.
