Yowoto cute boy surprised with plate of strawberry pancakes and juice

    Jaggery or honey instead of sugar: Your child has a sweet tooth? Sugar increases hyperactivity by preventing blood sugar levels from remaining stable. Seemingly innocent foods like cereals and soymilk also have hidden sugar. Use jaggery, honey and other naturally sweet food while cooking instead of processed sugar.
  • Yowoto strawberry custard in bowl

    Colourful fruits instead of artificial colours: Bright yellow or red icing on cakes, custards, pastries and cupcakes need to be avoided. Instead use colourful fruits like green grapes, watermelon, peaches, berries, strawberries, blackcurrants, etc. Even if you are allowing the occasional cupcake or custard, they don’t have to be laden with artificially-coloured sugar, right?
  • Yowoto nacho chips and salsa

    3/ 5
    Healthy dips instead of junk food: Junk food contains hydrogenated oil, which interrupts the functioning of the brain. Avoid deep-fried food like French fries, pakoras and hash browns. Instead prepare tangy tomato, cheese and garlic dips. These work well with roasted tortilla chips, veggies, tofu, cottage cheese, soy cubes and nuts to make healthy snacks!
  • Yowoto fruit milkshake and fresh juices

    Chilled lemonades instead of caffeinated drinks: Beverages like coffee, tea and sodas are a strict no-no for kids. They are acidic and affect the natural balance of the blood sugar level. Instead opt for chilled lemonade with honey or fresh fruit juices. Pop in a bright straw or add a slice of fruit/umbrella to the glass to see kids flocking to the healthy drinks table!
  • Yowoto bowl of popcorn

    5/ 5
    Salt: Excess salt interferes with the working of neurons. So ditch those chips, cheese balls, finger foods and the like! Instead add plain yoghurt to finely chopped carrots and cucumber; squeeze lemon juice into the mix and sprinkle chaat masala on top. You can also serve oatmeal with fresh fruits, air-popped popcorn, stone-ground tortilla chips, etc.
