Like any mother I am worried about the calcium, protein and other essential nutrient intake of my five-year-old. However, over these five years of trial and error I have found that if there is one thing that every child loves and can eat at any time of the day, it has to be paneer.
Besides being tasty, paneer has a number of health benefits for your kids as well, especially for those who are pure vegetarians and do not eat meat. Paneer is an excellent source of protein and 100gm of paneer yields around 18 gm of protein, which is crucial for your growing child.
Paneer is also loaded with calcium, which is imperative for healthy bones and teeth of your growing child. It also contains iron and numerous other essential vitamins.

Now, I know that you want to add as many vegetables as you can to this dish so that your child gets all the nutrition, but don't go overboard with it. The key is to add vegetables that add to the taste and do not give the recipe a unique taste that is too strong to make your child sit over and eat.
The best vegetables that can be added would be red, yellow and green capsicums, baby corn, sweetcorn and carrots. Please feel free to choose the vegetable of your kids choice. Here's what you will need:
