Even as grown-ups, our taste buds are tempted by the thought of consuming something deep-fried, sizzling and spicy rather than something healthy. If we as adults find it difficult to control our taste buds, how can the kids be convinced to eat healthily?
It takes a lot of effort to convince children not to run after junk food and eat home-cooked healthy food instead. Moreover, we also play some dirty tricks like sneaking something healthy into their favorite snacks. After all, how else are we supposed to get the proper nutrients in their body that will help them grow and build strong immunity?
So, if you find yourself struggling to find healthy snacking options for kids, then we have the perfect solution for you, and it comes with the perk of not hiding tasteless healthy food in their snacks. Imagine them asking for more of your healthy snacks, wouldn’t it be just delightful?
Here are some healthy and tasty options for snacks that your kids would love to get their hands on.
Children go gaga over ice-cream but it’s a well-known fact that factory made ice-creams are a far cry from being a healthy snacking option, so why not make them some at home.
You will need around 250 grams of yogurt and three cups of frozen berries of your choice. You can go for individual flavors or have mixed berries.
Freeze the berries and drain the water out of yogurt by hanging it in a muslin cloth overnight. Mix the yogurt and berries in a blender, add honey to taste and churn thoroughly till smooth. Pour out the mix in a bowl and freeze it. Serve it chilled. You can experiment with different fruits like mangoes, watermelon, kiwi etc., to get many different kinds of exotic flavors. Try this at home, and we can guarantee you that your children will never want to go back to the regular store bought ice-cream again.
Don’t all kids love pancakes? But they can’t exactly be called healthy because of the ingredients. However, you can give them a healthy twist and at the same time also make them more delicious than your regular pancakes.
First, you need to replace the all-purpose flour with whole-wheat flour. Then just add eggs along with homemade mango puree or any other fruit puree that your kids would like instead of sugar, low-fat milk and mix until you have a smooth batter. You can add some honey if you still find the batter less sweet. Put the batter in a non-stick pan and flip it when the lower side gets golden brown. You can replace the maple syrup with fresh fruit puree and let the kids enjoy.
Kids love the shakes and smoothies available at multiple franchises, however, once again these are loaded with sugar and artificial flavors.
A fruit lassi or smoothie can go a long way in enabling your children to consume healthy drinks on a regular basis. An added bonus, one glass of fruit lassi or smoothie can satiate their hunger for a long time.
So next time if your kids are hungry just go to the kitchen and whip up a cool fruit smoothie. You will need peeled fruits (you can use mixed fruits or can go for a specific flavor yogurt and honey. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Serve chilled.
