Parathas are always a great food to serve to kids, because you can stuff them with all the nice veggies, dals, paneer or whatever you wish your kids would eat! The combination of carrot and spinach suggested for this whole wheat Paushtic Paratha is not only wholesome but also tasty and colourful, so your kids are surely love it. Make sure you add curds while making the dough as it helps keep the parathas soft. Also serve with a bowlful of curd to enrich these folic acid and vitamin A rich parathas with protein and calcium too.
