Top Tiffin Snacks for Kids
Have you ever passed by a school building when the kids are having their snack break? Oh my goodness, what joyous chattering and chirpy young voices you can hear! Indeed, snacks break is a time that kids really look forward to. It is a break from their studies and school activities, and a time to catch up with their friends. And, of course, kids always love to peep into each other’s snack boxes and share what they have all brought together. You must see the glow of pride on the face of the kid with the most exciting snack in his gang. It’s simply too delightful!
Every mom wants her kid to be part of that league with the most interesting snacks. The smile on the child’s face is every mother’s greatest gift. Yet, in the business of the morning, it is a little tough to decide what to make and pack in the tiffin box, and we so often end up packing the same old roti and aloo, or packaged biscuits. Not that we intend to send something normal or boring; it’s just that we lack the time to decide on something wonderful and prepare it.
Not to worry. This is a collection of amazing tiffin snacks recipes for kids. From muffins to parathas and cookies to crunchy-munchy jar snacks, we have thought of everything that kids love. When you have time, you can prepare something fresh like the Jowar and Vegetable Paratha, Baby Corn and Capsicum Rice, Creamy Pesto Pasta or Rava Toast. Sometimes, we are hesitant to pack stuff like pasta thinking it will become gooey or thick when the kids eat it later, but we have made all these recipes such that they will remain good for 3-4 hours. So, stick to the ingredients and proportions we have mentioned to ensure that it stays good later.
Jar snacks always come to the rescue when you are running short of time. Once in a few days, when you have a little free time, you can prepare a batch of Eggless Chocolate Chip Cookies, Baked Oats Puri, Bajra Chakli or Whole Wheat Carrot and Raisin Muffins, and keep them handy to pack on busy days. When packing these make sure that you use dry, airtight tiffin dabbas so that they will remain crisp. However, make sure your kid can open the box comfortably. At times, teachers complain of parents sending snacks in boxes with over-tight lids. Kids then make a beeline to the teacher’s desk to get the box opened, or attempt to open it themselves resulting in spills. So, balance airtightness with ease of opening when selecting the box.
Always try to decide your menu for breakfast, lunch and tiffin dabba the previous night itself, so that you can make any pre-preparations earlier. Mornings will turn out to be much more relaxed then! You can cook and pack with a smile, and be assured of a larger smile blooming on the young one’s face.
Enjoy the day, and happy cooking!
