Yowoto healthy meat sandwich with vegetables

  • Yowoto tacos quesadillas with mexican salad
    Hemera/Thinkstock
    1/ 5
    Cheese quesadillas: Sounds fancy and like more trouble than you would want to go through for a half-meal, we know. Here’s the simpler version: Put sliced cheese between two tortillas, microwave until the cheese melts and serve with a tomato dip. Or substitute the tortillas with the less fancy-sounding, but equally yummy, khakhras.
  • Yowoto bunch of bananas

    2/ 5
    Bananas with peanut butter: Slice a banana vertically from the tip. Spread peanut butter on each slice. Cut into bite-sized pieces and serve. Yes, we see that frown at the mention of peanut butter, but a chunky variety is actually a good source of mono and polyunsaturated (the good kind) fatty acids. Still, make it an occasional snack.
  • Yowoto fruit pieces on skewers and whipped cream

    3/ 5
    Fruits with dips: The perennial struggle—how to get them to eat the required portions of fruits. Just serve them with a variety of tasty dips. Serve small slices of fruits with cheese sauce, bean dip or flavoured yoghurt. Serve fruits cold whenever possible.
  • Yowoto spilled oats with dried raspberry
    Hemera/Thinkstock
    4/ 5
    Granola: Usually the recipient of disgusted looks, granola can easily be turned into a yummy snack option. Add a dollop of flavoured or plain yogurt and finely chopped carrots and cucumber; squeeze lemon juice into the mix and sprinkle some chaat masala on top for your very own version of healthy bhel.
  • Yowoto bowl of popcorn
    iStockphoto/Thinkstock
    5/ 5
    Popcorn: Toss some kernels in a pressure cooker, add butter (or not), and you’re good to go. It’s quick, easily available, and easy on the pocket too. Season with salt, cinnamon, parmesan or whatever flavour your child is partial to.

Healthy Snacking Options For Kids

2013-02-21 11:58:00 +0530

When was the last time you saw a 4-year-old snacking on celery sticks? That's right, never. So here are a few interesting snack options. They're not as healthy as salad, but are a huge improvement on that evil packet of crisps

It all starts with 1 biscuit. Then 2, and 3, and before you know it, all that's left are crumbs. Happens often enough with calorie-counting, fitness-watching adults; why won't it happen to little kids at the mercy of their taste buds? You can resolutely skip the chips-and-biscuits aisle at the supermarket, but what will you do when your growing monster hollers for a snack between meal times? Here are our suggestions.
