Healthy Snacks almost sound like an oxymoron.Before I became a mommy I thought meals were when you had food ,snacks were stuff which my mother wouldn’t give me at home.But when I became a mommy ,I realized parenting and cooking is inseperable.If your little one eats right,the world is going fine.
When she stops eating ,nothing in the world can make you happy.The guilt trips that we subject ourselves too is bad enough, we worry about their growth.But the problem is not just what you are cooking.Its also what the little one wants to eat.I wrote about how tricky feeding your preschooler can be.I also wrote about how to tackle picky eating .The main problem is snacks not only need to stop their cravings .but also needs to be healthy.Childhood obesity is a worrying problem and affects their entire life.What we feed them today will mold their eating habits and health ,both physical and mental.
My top go to healthy snacks.
You just can’t go wrong with these.Luckily my Rai loves all fruits.Banana for a snack makes her happy.Mangoes need to be just right.Firm and sweet .Apples and grapes are favourites too . Oranges are a staple during winters.Dried cranberries and figs she enjoys a lot .I am writing about A to Z of fruits .Dont forget to read .
Nuts and Raisins
A few walnuts or almonds made into small pieces by themselves or as toppings for her oats .Walnut has omega 3 fatty acids and is the best nut known.Almonds are great too.raisins are rich in potassium great for heart health.
Oats & Chia
- I use it together with a spoon of raw cocoa mixed with milk and honey to make a porridge.This I garnish with raisins.
- I make pancakes with aata(wheat flour) , oats , chia , eggs and adding curd instead of milk.It tastes yummy.I tried Tina’s easy banana pancake and the entire family loved it.
- The mug brownie made by Tina is my recent favorite.I just substituted oats and chia ,with a little bit of flour, instead of the whole thing being made of flour.
I also make parathas using wheat flour, oats, and chia.
Veggies fries and fritters
Carrot fries and pumpkin fried in airfryer are an easy delicious crunchy snack.Even french fries airfried is healthier!
Luckily my daughter loves having eggs and never likes salt in it.Whether its an omlette( cooked just right ),sunny side up or boiled, she loves them all.I also make noodle pakoda with eggs and veggies in the air fryer,Its crunchy delicious and makes for a quick snack.
