Healthy Indian School Snack Recipes for Kids

Healthy Indian School Snack Recipes for Kids. Healthy School Snack Indian Recipes for Kids. Most parents tend to worry about what their kids eat because nutritious food is the building block of a bright future. Snacking is important for children because healthy snacks had at the right intervals provide the energy and nutrition needed to face their day with gusto. However, moms often find it difficult to appease their kids' craving for variety while at the same time maintaining healthy nutrition levels in the snacks.

Here, we present a range of healthy school-time snacks for your little ones, which are healthy, delicious and visually attractive too.

Theplas, Parathas as healthy school snacks for kids.

Give your kids some healthy parathas, rotis or theplas which they can munch on the go or easily had with some curds as a quick snack. Make sure no plain flour is used. The popular Gujarati methi thepla is a perfect option. Made mainly from methi and whole wheat flour.

This unique Broccoli Paratha recipe has the brilliant flavour of mixed herbs, chilli flakes and pepper. While the flavour is out of the world when served fresh, it fortunately stays nice in the tiffin box too for at least 4 to 5 hours. So, on some days, you can serve this hot and fresh for breakfast or after school, while on some days you can pack it as a healthy school snack for kids.

This Jowar and Vegetable Paratha recipe with carrot, spinach, roasted jeera and spice powders is not only very tasty but also colourful and pleasant to look at, so kids will feel tempted to bite into them. Generally, people are wary of packing millet based Rotis for lunch because they think it would harden.

However, when prepared with the right mix of wheat flour and other ingredients like vegetables and spices, they remain soft and tasty for at least 4 hours. Allow the parathas to cool completely, wrap in an aluminium foil, and pack in an air-tight tiffin box.

Oats used in Healthy Indian School Snack Recipes for Kids

Oats is the perfect healthy cereal to use as a base for healthy snacks for kids. Oats are a great source of protein for Vegetarians. It is rich in soluble fibre (to make it good for diabetics), which helps lower blood LDL cholesterol, the so-called "Bad" cholesterol. Kids love their savoury snacks for school. Ragi and Oats Cracker is light on the stomach.

These Ragi and Oat Crackers are all the better, as they are made with wholesome ragi, oats and whole wheat flour, perked up with olive oil and other seasonings. Olive oil gives these tasty crackers an exotic aroma and a wonderfully crisp texture too, without oodles of butter or other oils.

Puris are normally made with maida and clearly not healthy. We have made a baked oats puri recipe which has the goodness or oats and whole wheat flour. The Baked Oats Puri is flavoured with sesame seeds, garlic paste and kasuri methi too.

Roasted Poha and Oats Chivda recipe is sure to answer your appetite in a tasty and crunchy way. Made of roasted oats, poha, peanuts and chana dal with a sprinkling of spice powders for a dash of excitement, this dry snack is ideal to store in an air-tight container and munch on when you are hungry, or to even send to school in the tiffin box on a rushed day when you do not have much time on your hands to prepare elaborate treats.

Healthy School sweet Indian Snack Recipes for Kids 

Healthy School sweet Indian Snack Recipes for Kids. At school, kids want to dig into sweet food so its better to provide some healthy options instead of them buying cheap ice-creams for Rs 40/. Try Date and Nut Coconut Balls.

While there is nothing so new about making laddoos out of dry fruits, the coating of coconut and cocoa gives the balls an absolutely new dimension. Coating one side of the ball with coconut and the other side with cocoa not only gives it an all-new taste, but also a very appealing appearance with brown and white hues. Usage of dates as a sweetener is far healthier than sugar and the nuts are always healthy.

Oats and mixed nuts ladoo recipe is made with a nutritious combination of oats, jaggery and nuts. Kids will love the intense flavour of jaggery, the mealy mouth-feel of powdered oats and the interludes of crunchy nuts.

This delicious tit-bit also scores a 10/10 on the nutrient scoreboard, as fibre-rich oats help lower cholesterol while jaggery and sesame seeds boost your iron levels. So keep it for the adults of the family too.

Healthy Indian School Snack
 on 15 Mar 23 09:40 AM

Some of these are so awful in taste for kids! Yuck. Adults might like these healthy snacks but no kid in his right mind will eat this happily. Think of something that kids will actually likened will eat not throw away. Ugh.
