A mom always tries to make sure to provide the best nutrition to her kids. It’s a task to make kids eat healthy stuff. Homemade and fresh food are the best but its hard to convince kids to eat everything served to them. I try to find healthy alternatives to everything my kids love to eat. Its easier said than done but it’s not impossible.
The trick is to find a healthy alternative to a product used in any recipe and replace it without changing the original taste.

My younger one loves pancakes and waffles in breakfast. Although the main recipe includes white flour or maida, I replace it with whole wheat flour or atta as all other ingredients are healthy in its recipe. These are our perfect Sunday breakfast pancakes which we make with different additions every time.
You can also increase the nutrition quotient by including fresh cut fruits in the recipe. I normally give it to her along with the pancake but you can also include it in the recipe. This recipe is healthy and yummy. Not only kids but adults can enjoy it too. You can enjoy them with honey, maple syrup or chocolate syrup.

You can use the same batter for making waffles too if you have a waffle maker at home. I suggest adding a little bit white flour instead of wheat flour for waffles.
Add a pinch of salt if you are using unsalted butter.
You can add chocolate chips in the end or any other ingredients of your choice.
