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!

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
