A Plate Full of Health and Happiness
As a mother, you always want to see your baby happy. For a child to be happy, he should be healthy. And for him to be healthy, it is really important to serve him plate-full of nutrients. But kids don’t care about nutrition, they care about the taste, texture, and appearance of the food. So as a parent, you will have to try to make your child’s favourite unhealthy dish in the healthiest way possible for him to eat it. You will have to make healthier versions of unhealthy food.
Initially, what you will have to do is hide (and sneak) in veggies and other nutritious foods in their food, and believe me, after some time your little one will definitely start having what you serve him with faith. He will know that mom will serve a plate full of happiness.
I always tell my baby the importance of each ingredient of food, so that he likes all vegetables and not just one particular veggie. In this blog, I am sharing simple tips that will help you make your kids eat healthy food.
- While making pasta for them, you can make gravy of beetroot (tell them pink colour) spinach-gravy or milk-based gravy.
- If you want to make your child eat bottle gourd, sneak them in in cheela (pancakes) or baked fritters.
- You can add veggies in poha.
- Serve dosa with lots of ghee.
- Serve parathas with a variety of veggies or make parathas of different veggies.
- Make vegetable idli with ghee.
- You can give fresh curd blend with any seasonal fruit.
- If they are in the mood for some sweet, you can make fruit cake using wheat flour and fruits.
These are some tips that you can try to get your kids to eat healthy! I will definitely share recipes with a twist of mom’s magic which serve babies a plate of happiness and health.
You can even include dry fruit powder in different foods. My baby is just 10-month-old and I try every day to make nutritious meals for her.
I want her to love what I make for her, but that’s not really happening as of now, but I am doing my best. It’s a new journey for both of us. She is exploring her taste buds and I am exploring my cooking skills. I know getting little ones to eat is a difficult task, but moms can do it with a few simple tricks.
