Summer season is almost here and we are excited about slurping cold summer coolers and gorging on some delicious frozen fruit salads. But what about our li’l munchkin who won’t eat healthy meals? We’ve had several mothers tell us that their kids won’t eat healthily and they want some ideas to tweak the regular recipes to make something fun and colorful so that the kids eat them. So, we curated a list of super healthy, cute, colorful, and delicious recipes that our chefs made using our products to add nutrition to your kid’s diet.
1. White Chocolate Fudge
Just because the recipe has chocolate don’t judge us already. These chocolate fudge are made with cranberries and pistachios. While cranberry is a superfood that is rich in antioxidants and boosts immunity, pistachios are great sources of fiber, minerals, and unsaturated fatty acids. Kids never eat fruits and nuts as is, so a little mix of white chocolate will do the trick. Chef @TheFlavourTrailByDivya used Stevia Powder, White Chocolate (Sugar-Free), Dried Cranberries, and Roasted Pistachio that are available on our website.
2. Banana Smoothies
Banana smoothie with peanut butter is a delicious beverage that kids absolutely love. It is beautiful and super easy to make. If your kids don’t eat their food correctly, then this smoothie can work as a great alternative because bananas are rich in Vitamin C and a great source of energy as well. Plus, peanut butter from @worldofrostaa is super rich in proteins.
3. Pasta Salad
We all know that our kids love pasta so we reinvented the dish to make a healthier version of pasta so that your kids can enjoy a guilt-free meal. Chef @mywhiteplate11helped us come with this beautiful recipe using Gluten-Free Fusilli Pasta from our website. This one has loads of veggies, a gorgeous dressing, and your kid’s favourite pasta. Try this one and see your li’l monster polishing away his/her plate of salad. Don’t be surprised if they ask for more!
4. Multigrain Bread
Breakfast on Sundays is what kids look forward to with eagerness. Put in some little extra effort and bake this appetizing multigrain bread for them. You can get the oats and whole wheat flour and wonderland fruit and seed mix that Chef @zestfulflavours used from our website. This loaf of bread is filled with the goodness of seeds and oats.
5. Granola Bars
Using breakfast granola and honey from wellcurve.in, Chef @sobhas_kitchen made these toothsome granola bars that work as a healthier version of chocolates. They are super easy to make and can be used as energy bars before or after workout sessions or in-between meals.
6. Oatmeal Cookies
We all know that snack time is kids’ favourite time and while they would never say a YES to a bowl of oats, they will definitely say YES to oatmeal cookies. Cookies go great with a mug of hot milk and make for a filling meal before dinner time. Chef @zestfulflavours made these cookies using Monsoon Harvest’s granola that is available on our website. These cookies are crunchy, super healthy and once your kid tries them, they’ll become his/her favourite snack of the day.
7. Spinach Quinoa Crepes
Spinach is hands-down is a must-have leafy green vegetable for kids of all ages. It is super rich in iron and is great for bones and hair. Kids always are picky about eating green vegetables, and so we asked Chef @bread.butter.jam to make a recipe that has spinach and will still be loved by kids. She used spinach quinoa flour from our range of products with some other easily available ingredients to make this delectable crepe that has high nutritious value and taste as well. If your kids like their food colorful, you can add some beetroot to the recipe to make gorgeous red crepes.
Another great way to start your kid’s day is by cooking them some buttery mini pancakes. You can get the keto-friendly and gluten-free pancake mix from our website to reciprocate Chef @richkcraft’s recipe. Because you want the mini cakes to look appetizing, you can add a dollop of whipped cream, sliced strawberries, choco chips, and drizzle some honey to make it flavorful.
We kept the best for the last. Kids absolutely love brownies and we have decoded a way to make them super healthy and guilt-free for your kiddos. You can get the Dark Chocolate almond butter and Toasted quinoa flour from the website to try this recipe by Chef @Therepublicoftaste. These fudgy vegan quinoa brownies taste better than the calorie-loaded ones and are super moist and crumbly. Your kids are going to love you even more after eating these brownies.
10. Orange Mint Cooler
Kids steer clear of eating fruits but parents know how important that is. We’ll tell you the recipe for this delicious citrusy and Vitamin C loaded Orange mint cooler that will solve all your problems. All you need is 1/2 orange, 4-5 mint leaves, honey, and sparkling water. Mix them all together and give it a good shake. Add ice if you’d like it, else prepare it in cold water. This recipe by @global_platter is a summer essential.
11. Beetroot Chia Pudding
Another great recipe that you can try is our favourite Beetroot Chia Pudding. Created by the very talented chef @plate_to_palette_, this one has the goodness of beetroot and chia seeds, with an unbeatable taste of a dessert.
We know making kids healthy is the biggest task at hand for parents and hence we wanted to help. We really hope that these quick, easy, and delicious recipes help you add some nutrition to your kid’s diet.
