Now, you won’t have to sweat wondering what to pack for your kids’ tiffin. Here are some amazing healthy tiffin recipes which kids will love.
What to pack in the tiffin is a main concern for a mother of school going kids, and in my case it was double as my kids’ school timings are from 08:30 to 15:30 so all in all they had two breaks, breakfast time and lunch time. I had to be very very careful and creative at the same time give them a meal that is not only healthy and nutritious. It should also ensure empty lunch boxes and filled tummies.
I believe when it comes to kids they need complete nutrition and we can’t skip anything be it proteins, vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates etc. So, I try to give them all energy foods packed with love.
Presenting here small tiffin break ideas, full meals for long lunch breaks and sweet dish/ dessert to give that extra energy in school- Trying to pack health, nutrition, and mother’s warmth in tiffin boxes.
Best way to feed your kids with proteins with loads of pulses in it.
Soak all above daals for 4-5 hours and then grind to paste, a rough paste will also do as they are properly soaked so no worries.)
This is a whole wheat bread topped with loads of vegetables which is shallow fried. It’s a halka fulka snack and yum option for tiffin box.
Mix all things in a bowl to make a smooth paste which can be easily spread on each slice.
Shallow fry on tava or pan upside down first. You can even bake it in microwave/ OTG on baking dish for say approximately 7-8 minutes. Pack in tiffins with a pouch of sauce.
Aloo- paratha is a popular paratha recipe. It is a spicy potato mixture with spices which are used for stuffing in the dough. It is a very easy and quick to make recipe. It is a good tiffin box snack, breakfast or any meal for that matter.
For Outer layer:
Whole wheat flour – 2 cups
Oil – 2 tablespoons
Salt – to taste
Water – ¾ cup or as required.
For parathas the dough should be soft so knead it nicely and keep aside.
For making Paratha
Yes it’s a healthy oil free paav-bhaji where taste is intact but oil is less. As it’s boiled and not fried, this is the best way to feed kids all the veggies.
Laddoo is a sweet, round, ball shaped sweet dish. This Atta ladoo which I call nutritious multi grain laddoo is favorite in my house and loved by kids!
This makes around 50 laddoos so one can reduce or increase as per requirement.
NOTE – I grind all dry-fruits as a few people or kids don’t like pieces of nuts while eating. But, if you like them then let them be coarsely grounded only and sans the grinding.
Chocolate and that too in muffins is like icing on the cake, strawberry on top of ice-cream. Yes kids simply love chocolates, cakes, cookies, muffins.
Mix all dry items, that is, wheat flour, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda together in a bowl.
In another bowl, mix the oil, milk, and vanilla extract, Add Cream butter and sugar together. Add egg and mix it well.
Add the dry flour mixture to the wet ingredient bowl and combine with a spatula or use whisker as it gives good lump free batter. whisk until everything is incorporated and no dry flour can be seen. Do not beat or over-mix as it dries up the cake/ muffin.
If required, add milk and mix well. Put this mixture in muffin molds. I prefer putting a small piece of chocolate in between the muffin to enhance taste.
6 Now place moulds into preheated oven and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Cool “Chocolate Muffins” and serve topped with silver balls etc.
Eat healthy, stay fit and happy!

Mostly Normal is a book of innocence, longing, filial love, angst and acceptance, encapsulating a gamut of human emotions within its lightweight edifice. The book touches the human heart and will stay with you.
Some books enthral you till the last page, and then there are those that you stop reading after turning a few pages. Some books are a one-time read, while you carry some books with you long after you have read them. Then, once in a while, a book hits you so close to home that you find it difficult to slot into any category.
I will put Priyadeep Kaur’s Mostly Normal (BookSoul Reads, 2022) in this last bracket.
At a little less than hundred pages, Mostly Normal is a testimony of the power of words to inspire, irrespective of their length.
Most women do not get to live their lives the way they want, on their own terms. So why should they be tied down in their old age?
Every morning, while dropping the kids at the bus stop, I find a grandfather waiting with his granddaughter. I see him again when I fetch the kids. This has been the pattern for the last few years.
He is seen actively participating in his granddaughter’s activities, from morning and evening walks to attending her parent-teachers meeting, sending her for extracurricular activities to even planning her birthday party. He is admired by all. He is appreciated for making himself useful in his old age. People rave that the doting grandfather is doing his duty towards his children and grandchildren. The much-admired grandfather is also a widower, having lost his wife years ago to chronic disease. It’s also to be noted that both his son and daughter-in-law are working parents.
Every day, the onlookers appreciate his sense of duty and dedication. They say that this is how the elderly should keep themselves occupied. They should bring up their grandchildren while their children go off to work.
