Potato Cheese Sandwich | Kids Tiffin Box Recipes

Cheesy sandwich recipe

This potato cheese sandwich makes a great tiffin box idea. My 4 yrs old kid loves this sandwich in his tiffin box. Kids love cheese. Even we adults do love cheese. But because of fat concern we do just avoid this. But you can have this once or twice in a week. I also make potato spinach sandwich, pizza sandwich, chocolate sandwich for his tiffin box. And for a mom, happiness is when tiffin box is empty. That’s too dramatic 😉 . But yes we all want to see that child is enjoying his food. If kid is fussy eater like mine, it’s always a headache to think about interesting tiffin box ideas. So whenever my kid is happy with any dish, I feel like sharing on blog so that I can help other moms.

Though every kid has different taste and food habit, we can always try changing and inducing more healthy food habit. I have shared one more recipe of party appetizer veg seekh kabab, paneer corn seekh kabab, potato lollipop, potato bites for kid’s tiffin box , Cheesy potato croquettes recipes. And the good news is that you can prepare the mixture and refrigerate them. In morning you can just fry them or shallow fry them and make sandwich/ burger of them. Or even you can give them as finger foods. These are healthy as made from green vegetables, potatoes and cheese. So it will keep our child full for longer.

Other Kid’s Tiffin Box Ideas

I will mention here what are the other items I do give my child in his tiffin box. With age you can try more recipes. These are basically finger foods for age group 2 yrs to 5 yrs (kids and toddlers).

My kid is very fond of parathas. So I do try to give variation in that. I make aloo paratha, gobi paratha, lachha paratha, methi paratha, paneer paratha, dal paratha. Dal paratha I make because he doesn’t like dal but he likes paratha. So I knead flour in cooked dal and make paratha with that dough. In this way he gets nutrition of lentils as well. Similarly I try to stuff vegetables and paneer in paratha. And he enjoys such food. So I’m happy too. While making paratha for my kid, I use ghee instead of refined oil. Ghee is very essential for bone health and brain development of kids.

You can also give idli, dosa, other savory crepes and pancakes, poha, upma, vermicelli upma (gives feel of maggie). In many schools junk foods are not allowed in tiffin box in order to develop healthy eating habit. So you can not give maggie, pasta, pizza etc in tiffin box. So in place of maggie use substitute like vermicelli and add different veggies to it. Read my vermicelli upma and try adding vegetables you think your kid would love. Minimize or remove chilli powder/ green chilli from recipe.

I will share other easy and healthy tiffin box recipes soon. Stay updated and subscribe via email to get direct update in your mailbox.

Mini Rava Dosa/ Mini Semolina Pancakes for Kids TiffinBox

Mini Rava Dosa/ Mini Semolina Pancakes for Kids Tiffin Box

Mini rava dosa is a healthy breakfast item. From the name you can guess the hero ingredient here is Rava or Semolina.

The batter for this recipe is prepared by mixing semolina with beaten curd. You can mix vegetables to the batter. I have added onion and bell peppers (red, yellow, green) and tomatoes. You can also add coriander leaves and green chillies but I have skipped chillies (kids recipe). You can also add grated carrots or grated boiled potatoes to it. This is tasty and has nutrition of veggies.

If you are looking for some interesting yet easy recipes, read kid’s friendly recipes like potato bites, bread rolls, aloo kachori, aloo paratha, gobi paratha, veg arancini, cheesy cauliflower fritters, cheesy potato sandwich, vermicelli upma/pulao, bread poha/upma. You can make chocolate sandwich, pizza sandwich, plain potato sandwich, tomato omelette sandwich and many more. These are quick (under 5 mins) recipes.

There are few quick bread recipes for our kids tiffin box/ lunch ideas. If kid is 2 – 5 years you can give him finger foods in tiffin box. This is because they are learning to eat by their own. So for them it’s a time consuming process. You can’t expect your 3 yrs old kid to finish a two bread sandwich in 4 – 5 bites. They will take more time than a kid of 5 years. So we need to decide what type of food he would love and enjoy.

I will share my experience and ideas. My kid loves dosa and paratha stuff. So I make dosa from regular lentils batter, wheat flour, semolina, rice flour, ragi flour, buckwheat flour etc. And he loves all of them. He has no idea if it’s same dosa or different, but enjoys the varieties.

Similarly he does not like dal. but we mothers know how important is this for their development. So I make dal paratha with dal. Sometimes I stuff potatoes because he loves aloo paratha very much.

I’m sure all super moms are finding different ways to give best to their little champs. So moms if you have some unique and interesting tiffin box ideas, please comment below. I would love to make them and present here.

Carrots Semolina Porridge or Carrots Upma

Carrots Semolina Porridge or Carrots Upma for Kids

carrot upma

Semolina Porridge or upma is a healthy and common breakfast item in any parts of India. This is light, easy to digest. Semolina is rich in fiber and keeps you full for longer. Semolina porridge can be a savoury dish or sweet dish also

Since this is light and easily digestible, this is highly recommended for kids. When my baby turned 9 months I started giving him semolina porridge. But remember to keep this in flowing (semisolid) consistency. But as they grow up you can start giving them regular ones which is cooked for adults.

carrots upma

For kids you can add different variation and nutrition to plain upma. Add any vegetables. I prefer to add potatoes, cauliflower, green peas, green beans, carrots, beets to the porridge for my kid. This is one of the way we can add nutrition of green vegetables.

Depending upon age of baby you can decide whether you need to grate the vegetables or keep chunks or small pieces. Below 1 year I would suggest you mash the vegetables completely as they can’t chew even smaller chunks.

Kids are normally very choosy when it comes about eating. My kid is a fussy eater. So more tension for mothers. We need to develop a healthy food habit for our kids.

When my son crossed 6 months I started giving him pureed vegetables, pureed khichdi, porridge. But when he developed taste bud and came to know what food he is eating he became very choosy about foods. Again year on year food habits also changes.

Something very close to my heart!! Spinach corn sandwich!! This sandwich is one of my favorite sandwich. The story of being nostalgic goes like this.
