“How do I get my kid to eat this?” – says every mother.
Evening hunger pangs are the most counted meal of the day for active kids. Kids love snacks and serving them healthy, filling and energy-packed snack in the wake of spending a long day at school or outside is super-needed, mama. Plain milk and maida biscuits or ready-made foods from the market may keep your little munchkin full but fails to satisfy the nutritional dietary demand of the hour.
Stuck in a snack rut? Well, we have 2 deliciously healthy evening snacks for kids. So mamas, go beyond dosas and idlis and try making these two more healthy-yummy snack recipes using dosa batter!
So, it’s a great time to toss out the junk food and start making snack time fun again! Moms, watch as your toddler finishes all the snacks and asks for more.
