A healthy breakfast is important to start your child’s day off right. It is also important for a child’s brain development and academic performance.
Children who eat breakfast tend to make healthier choices when it comes to food in general and have more energy to expend, making them more likely to participate in different activities. Those who do not eat breakfast tend to be hungry by mid-morning and, as a result, snack or overeat. This leads to weight problems. So, breakfast basically helps in controlling your child’s weight.
Idlis with sambar or just phulkas with curd can be boring for children. So, adding a simple touch to traditional Indian breakfast recipes will not only be tasty, but also visually appealing to your children.
Here is a list of 5 delicious and healthy Indian breakfast recipes that your kids can enjoy. Continue scrolling!
1. Oats lazily
Place a bowl of gooey oatmeal in front of the child and you’ll get an “eww” or “yuck” in return! When kids don’t like oatmeal, they’re lazily given oats, a healthy and tasty (slightly modified) vegetarian dish from the South.
Being low in calories, it is an ideal choice for the calorie conscious people. Oats are rich in protein, minerals, vitamins and fiber, which add to their nutritional value without compromising their deliciousness.
2. Upma bread
When you think of bread, you only think of sandwiches or toast. But when you think Indian, you think of bread! It’s a great way to use up leftover bread and is a great substitute for Rava upma.
3. Masala Dosa with vegetables
Dosas are delicious Indian pancakes, except they’re not sweet. Like idlis, you eat dosas with chutneys or potato curry. This masala dosa recipe shows you how to bring the goodness of vegetables to the breakfast table. You can add nutritional value to this recipe by replacing the potato with paneer, carrots, peppers, etc.
4. Rawa Dosa
Rawa dosa is an instant Indian breakfast recipe which means it is not fermented and you can make the dough with just a handful of ingredients and have the dosa ready in under an hour! This is another irresistible option for your child because it is tasty, crispy and crispy.
5. Stuffed Paratha
Getting your child to eat the vegetables with roti (Indian bread) can be a difficult task! Then comes the paratha. Stuffed Paratha is an Indian Vegetable Breakfast Recipe, which consists of bread and vegetables in one! You can stuff the paratha with potatoes, cauliflower, leafy vegetables, red beets and carrots.
6. Broken wheat, oat and apple porridge
Oatmeal by itself is not very appealing. So make it a sweet porridge by adding broken wheat (Dalia) and fruit. We’ve chosen apples, but you can also add bananas, berries, and raisins if your child likes them. This recipe is a combo of two well-filled cereal bowls, prepared as a delicious meal. Kids will love its creamy, fruity flavor.
