Healthy Tiffin Recipes that Children Love

Last Updated on

Hi Mommies! Let’s face it. Feeding our children healthy food is a challenge for us. A mission you could say! And we have no option other than facing them head on! Below mentioned are some quick and easy tiffin recipes I have come up with for my toddler. Hope your kids will like it too. Do try them!

1. Dal Pooris

This is a yummy, healthy and satiating flatbread. I usually use leftover Tur Dal (Arhar Dal). You can use fresh Dal too. Just make sure you keep it thick.


  • Dal (1cup)
  • Coriander Powder
  • Garam masala
  • Coriander leaves
  • Garam masala
  • Semolina
  • Oil
  • Whole wheat flour


  • Add one teaspoon of oil to one cup of flour. To that, add the dry spices, leftover Dal, a tablespoon of semolina and sprinkle some water and knead a soft dough.
  • You need not add water as the water in the Dal is sufficient for binding. No need to add salt as well.
  • With the use of different cookie cutters roll and cut pooris of different shapes.
  • Deep fry them in medium hot oil.
  • Crispy, healthy and tasty pooris are ready. Children enjoy them with tomato ketchup.

2. Cheese balls

A quick, easy snack with the goodness of cheese!


  • Bread
  • Boiled potatoes
  • Processed cheese
  • Pizza seasoning
  • Cornflour
  • Salt
  • Oil


  • Take two slices of bread and cut off their edges.
  • Mash two boiled potatoes and add the crumbled bread pieces, one teaspoon of cornflour, a pinch of pizza seasoning and salt to taste. Mash well.
  • Take a cube of processed cheese and again cut it into small cubes.
  • Make small balls of the mix, carefully adding a cube of cheese inside. Give it a circular or an elliptical shape as per your choice.
  • Deep fry in medium hot oil. Serve with Mayonnaise or ketchup.

3. Paneer Stir Fry

A healthy, protein-packed snack for instant energy!


  • Paneer – 250gms
  • Black pepper powder
  • Pizza seasoning mix
  • Cornflour
  • Oil
  • Chaat Masala


  • Cut paneer into cubes.
  • Dust two teaspoon of cornflour over it. Sprinkle some pizza seasoning and mix well. The moist texture of paneer would bind the cornflour well.
  • Shallow fry the cubes in medium hot oil till they turn light brown. Then place them on a tissue paper to get rid of the excess oil.
  • Sprinkle some black pepper and Chaat Masala. Paneer stir fry is ready!
Hope you liked these easy recipes. My child absolutely loves them and that’s what makes mothers like us happy, right!
