Tiffin Ideas for preschooler - Part 1 / Recipes for kids, babies

My DS started his preschool and so daily I need to make something for his Tiffin. I prefer something which is healthy and his favourite.

It’s a real tough job as he is a fussy eater like other kids of his age :)

I surfed net but didn’t found much ideas for vegetarian snacks which I can pack for his Tiffin, so in this post I am going to share some of my recipes with all of you.

I hope these recipes will help you to put something in your fussy eaters tummy :)

Today I am only giving you ideas, very soon I will post recipes with pics. If you have more new snacks ideas then please share with me, like every mom I am always in search of healthy quick snacks for my DS :)

So here are few snacks ideas. You can adjust the ingredients as per your baby’s taste. 

1. Cheese Sandwich:  

My DS like this sandwich and its very easy to make. You can make this by adding some grated cheese between 2 bread slices and make a sandwich using tawa or sandwich maker.

Variations: you can add a pinch of red chilly powder and chat masala on grated cheese. You can also add thin tomato slices with cheese. You can use brown bread to make this healthier.

2. Cheesy Pasta:

You will think again cheese? Cheese is all time favourite of my baby J so my many recipes include cheese.  

Boil pasta adding ½ tsp. salt and ½ tsp. oil. Drain water and add some cheese, ½ tsp. butter and salt to hot pasta. Mix it and let it cool for 2-3 mins. Your cheesy pasta is ready to pack.

3. Creamy Paratha: 

Take 1 small bowl whole wheat flour add 2-3 tsp. cream, salt as per taste, a pinch of red chilly powder and milk if required. Knead it to make a soft dough. Roll it in any shape you want and cook it on tawa same as you cook your other parathas. Use less ghee or oil to cook this paratha as it already contains cream.

Note: Try to use fresh cream from your daily milk instead of store brought.  

Variations: You can add grated vegetables like cabbage, potato, carrot etc. to make it more healthy. Every time give a new shape to your paratha so your baby will like to eat it. You can use cookie cutters to shape your parathas.

4. Suji Upma:

Take 1 small bowl suji rawa / semolina. In a wok add 2 tsp. oil, add a pinch cumin seeds, mustard let it split, add curry leaves and semolina, fry the semolina on low heat for 2-3 mins., add 2 cups hot water, add 2 tsp. curd, if curd is not available you can use few drops of lemon juice. Mix it well and cook till think consistency. Add chopped coriander and let it cool. Upma is ready to pack for tiffin.  

5. Boiled Green Peas:

Boil 1 small bowl green peas till tender. In a non-stick pan add little bit oil, when oil is hot add boiled peas, a pinch of salt, a pinch of red chilly powder, a pinch of chat masala. Mix well and fry for a minute. Cool it and its ready to pack with roti or paratha.  

I will post more recipes in my next post.

I often experiment different combinations with cheese like grated carrot mixed with a little cream and salt and making a carrot cheese sandwich.also you can make boiled grated spinach with cheese or cream or with corn ..so different combinations can be experimented for sandwiches for kids

Although I'm a young guy with no kids, I just stopped by to say such a thoughtful post this is. It genuinely helps. Frankly, I'm not such a thoughtful person and would like to appreciate you for being that...helping out moms.
There was something about your post that touched me brought back school memories of how my mom used to put a tiffin for school. And I realized how she must have put in so much thought about a simple tiffin without me knowing anything about it.
Cheers to you.
