6 Foods That Have Marched Their Way Into My Kitchen For A Healthier Family


This Nutrition Week (i.e first week of September), we are throwing focus on all the nutrition you can add to your kids' daily eating and also make them fun at the same time. We gave you a list of quick snacks that will deliver the nutrition even on days when your kids skip their meals. We also gave you an entire month's meal plan that you could download and refer when planning your child's tiffin menu for school. (P.S- they are no-bread recipes!)

Sunflower Seeds


Sunflower seeds would be a food that tops the taste and health quotient for the kids. They absolutely love it in their cereal, granola bars, pesto spinach pasta and trail mix (try our recipe). A handful of sunflower seeds will take care of your hunger, while also enhancing your health by supplying significant amounts of vitamin E, magnesium and selenium. Buy here.

Spirulina Powder


One of the most talked about superfoods of recent times, spirulina powder is bluish-green in colour, energy boosting and helps in detoxification. It is tasteless, so your kids won't suspect a thing! Add it to their spinach soup or their green sabzi, to give them a dose of good health. If the kids are reluctant don't push it but make sure you add it to their meals in some form. Buy here.

Raw Chia Seeds

This superfood, rich in micronutrients is something that's been in my kitchen cabinet for a while. It is also known to be a great source of Omega-6 fatty acids and dietary fibre, essential for kids. It is generally advised to start chia seeds for kids who are 3 years and older- so that digestion is easier. You can add these to their puddings, juices, muesli, or oatmeal. Buy here.

The importance of oats in your child's meal is something that every parent agrees and understands. Oats are high in fibre but it's important to use rolled oats versus using instant two-minute cookout ones. We have earlier told you how you can make your daily oats recipes more appealing for kids. Without the fibre, these won't mean much so make sure you don't skip that. Buy here.

Palm jaggery is something that your grandmother would have suggested for your child, starting from their 6-7 month. Try organic, chemical-free palm jaggery that has a natural chocolate-like taste. It can be added to ladoos or rotis that your child eats. If you are making your child's sheera or weaning meal plan ideas, this is a must include. Buy here.

Organic Palm Sugar

Palm sugar is basically unrefined sugar that is rich in essential vitamins and nutrients. Taste-wise, it is similar to regular sugar and melts easily too. Also, it is widely popular for its low glycemic index, which helps maintain your blood sugar levels at the optimum range. Add it to your child's lassi, energy drinks or even their daily dose of healthy juices. Buy here.
