Does your little one bring the tiffin box untouched from the school? Or do you sometimes have to wake up a little too early for cooking the healthy dish for tiffin boxes? While we parents always strive to give the healthiest food to our kids, it might not be what a child is looking for! So, here we have crafted some quick, healthy and delicious recipes that your kids will definitely love to eat in school.
- Masala Idli
All you need to do is prepare to saute finely chopped onion and tomato, add some tomato sauce, a little salt, black pepper and add leftover or fresh idlis cut into four pieces. Complete with the goodness of veggies and tanginess of the sauce, this makes up for a perfect tiffin item. You can also use Oats Idli or RavaIdli.
- Panini Bread with Leftover Chicken
Regular maida bread might not be a healthy option, so grab a panini bread instead to make this chicken sandwich. Put two layers of mozzarella cheese and stuff it with the leftover chicken, and the delicious sandwich is ready to go in the tiffin!
- Banana and walnut muffin
Both Banana and Walnut have proven health benefits. Hence, for sweet cravings, nothing works better than a banana walnut muffin, you can also prepare it using regular wheat flour instead of maida which is unhealthy.
- Stuffed Paratha
The winters have already closed in and so the stuffed parathas are the easiest, healthiest and most delicious option for the tiffin. You can stuff anything from aloo, gobhi, paneer, boiled matar or even scrambled eggs or any green veggie. Just put a dollop of home-made butter or pickle and the tiffin would definitely be empty that day!
- French Toast
If you woke up a little late, just pack some french toast with fresh fruits like strawberries, kiwi or bananas for the tiffin. Being both healthy and filling, French toasts accompanied with some fresh fruit will give a boost of energy to your child to remain active in the second half.
Apart from the regular lunch, you can also keep a small tetra-juice pack or a pack of flavored greek yogurt for the kid to enjoy during small breaks!
