It’s that time of the year when monsoon is upon us again, bringing with it worries about keeping your child safe and immunity levels strong.
A great way to make sure your child is healthy even as the rain continues to pour is to make some healthy and delicious warm foods at home. To make it fun, you can let your little one assist you in the kitchen, and yes, as they sneak in some healthy ingredients, you can put your mommy worries at rest too.
3 delicious, healthy and super easy warm foods your kids will love
1. Warm Chicken/Vegetable Soup
Not only will your kids love this, but you too can have bowlfuls of these to stay warm, healthy and full. If you are a non-vegetarian, you can use chicken, else vegetables will suffice. In a pot, add some butter and a bit of olive oil. Next, add some cloves of garlic, a bit of ginger, diced potatoes, sliced onions and carrots, sweet corn, mushroom, green peas and some pasta (you can substitute this with noodles).
If you want, you can add chicken stock, else skip. Add a little water and stir for some time. Add a tsp. of soy sauce, mix, and add water and salt. Cover and let it cook. Add enough water for soup. Garnish with black pepper, spring onions and butter.
2. Fruit Pancake
Most kids love pancake and this can also be a great way to sneak in some fruits. Prepare a batter by mixing some atta, besan, raagi, sooji and powdered oats. Add honey or jaggery, along with some grated apples. Now add water to make a pancake-like consistency.
Heat butter and pour the batter to make pancakes. Cook on both sides to make it golden brown. Did I tell you this can also be sent for the school tiffin?
3. Dal Khichdi
I prepare this a lot especially when I have some leftover dal, but you can make it with fresh dal and rice as well. All you have to do is heat butter in the cooker, add jeera, garlic, heeng, tomatoes and some onions. Now add the dal and keep stirring till it becomes a little thick.
Add the cooked rice and keep stirring. Add some water and cook the already cooked dal and rice for about 3 whistles. Garnish with ghee or butter.
