These delicious homemade dessert snack recipes are easy to make and nutritious too for your little one – and the entire family to enjoy.

Who says desserts snacks are all bad? You can make yummy dessert snacks for your kids/toddlers that are as nutritious as the meal. I would like to share two easy-to-make and healthy dessert snack recipes for your kids (older than 12 months.)

You can serve them after the meal or as a mid-day snack. But before you go on to try these recipes or other new dessert recipes, keep the following points in mind:

  1. Use only finely ground nuts in your recipes to prevent any choking hazard. Some kids (especially toddlers) find big chunks or whole nuts difficult to swallow.
  2. Introduce one food item at a time to check your kid’s preference and signs of any allergic reaction. This will help you to select the best ingredients while preparing any dishes for your little one.
  3. You can use unsweetened soya milk as a healthy alternative to whole milk in various recipes.
  4. Do not add artificial sweeteners in your baby’s food to prevent any negative health outcomes.
