Many moms ask me questions related to healthy snacks for their kids. Kids prefer chips, packed juices, chocolates, cookies for snacks and moms worry about their health.

Snacks can be healthy and yummy too. We need a little creativity in the kitchen and we can create yummy snacks for our kids with little changes here and there.

My daughters love sandwiches and we experiment a lot with our bread whole wheat bread. This is the list of sandwiches we make-

Paneer sandwich

Vegetable sandwich

Pizza sandwich

Chicken sandwich

Egg sandwich

Cheese sandwich and much more.

Other things which are a part of their snack box regularly are- Upma, Poha, vermicelli upma, corns chaat, French toast, Pop corns, moong dal chilla (Recipe below) etc. I must tell you that all these things include vegetables in different forms.

Most important- Include a fruit. I make it a point to send a fruit in their snack box to school daily. I replace it with dry fruits sometimes which is also a great option for snacks.

We cannot forget the nutritional value of food. I shared some nutrition tips here in my #Atozchallenge post today.

It is important to take 4-5 servings of fruits and vegetables daily. #Nutrition #Kids Click To Tweet

I am sharing my favourite recipe for kids. This recipe is nutritious, healthy and can be modified in different ways to include different ingredients.

 

It is my favourite especially in exam season as it is rich in proteins and low in carbohydrate.

Instructions
  1. Grind soaked moong dal to a smooth paste just before you are planning to make the cheelas. Make a smooth batter and do not add too much water while grinding.
  2. Mix salt and a little bit red chilly.
  3. Apply oil and cook it evenly on both sides.
  4. I use crushed paneer and onion mixture for stuffing. After stuffing paneer, fold it in half.
  5. Serve hot with Mint chutney or ketchup.

Variations- 1. Make it without stuffing and add onions, green chillies and coriander leaves to the batter itself.

  1. Mix grated carrots to the batter to make it more nutritious.
  2. try pancakes with different combinations of pulses.
