Most children love to nibble on bread for a snack. Though it is easily available in the market, it is fun to make your own healthy version using whole wheat flour when time permits. For a more nourishing snack make a sandwich using fresh vegetables.

Always curious to make whole wheat bread as there is no guarantee what quality you get in India. There is a tendency to have 75% whole wheat and 25% maida in making whole wheat bread. Even 5 star hotels in Mumbai do this. For those who want to stay fit, this is a no no. This recipe is 100% whole wheat!!! Yes. Eat in moderation to stay healthy. To make it healthier, cut the butter and use 2 tablespoon olive oil.
