Snacks For Children by Nita Mehta

Snacks For Children
by Nita Mehta

An average household spends a lot of time and effort on the preparation of food – and this includes preparing food for children.

Naturally, the primary aim is to fulfil the nutritional needs of growing children – however it is easier said than done! We all know that children have very stubborn likes and dislikes so we need to find ways of making healthy food exciting and appealing.

A child will eat most readily when he/she is hungry and wants a snack – so the emphasis of this book is to give you a range of quick, easy and nutritious offerings for that eager spurt of hunger.

Everyday the child has to take tiffin to school – how do you introduce variety and appeal? I have devoted one section to this subject. When the child returns from school, hot and thirsty, tired and hungry – choose a hearty snack from the section on evening snacks.

And for those special treats – I have given you a lot of sweet options as well.

Children have a comfort level with things that match their size. Their food should be in a small portion, in a shape they can relate to. They also like to pick up things with their fingers, and most of all, they like to eat in a hurry, then rush off to play. You yourself have too much to do and you need simple recipes that are clear and easy.

Keeping all this in mind, I have given you recipes for known favourites like pasta, pizza and pulao, hidden with healthy secrets. You will also find many innovative new ideas. I have given many examples of small round pancakes; savoury balls; finger foods; mini-rolls; mini-seekhs; plump little patties; tempting tikkis, toasties, tyres and wheels; biscuits, sandwiches and buns.

But nowhere have I compromised on taste. In fact I can assure you that grown ups will be as crazy about some of these snacks as children.
