Crispy Potato Bites For Kids Tiffin Box
When holidays are over and schools reopened the big question for moms is “what to pack in tiffin box for kids?”. Ohh for me also.
There are many kids friendly foods especially of their choice. But in morning it’s difficult to manage time for preparation of tiffin, breakfast etc etc. And if you are a working mother, I can feel your pain 😉
Kids are normally very choosy when it comes to food and eating. My kid is a fussy eater too. So more concern for mothers.
We need to develop a healthy food habit for our kids.
When my son crossed 6 months I started giving him all 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 their eating habits and choice of food also change. Some year you may notice he loves a particular food and some other day he/she may not like that food at all.
More than anything they need variety. So we need to think about different tiffin box ideas.
I’m going to make another complete guide of healthy tiffin box ideas. Subscribe to my blog for regular updates.
How to make potato bites in 15 minutes?
This potato bite recipe is very easy. Kids need more carbs as compared to adults as they need more energy punch during their growth period. Green veggies look boring to them and they love fast food.
We should brilliantly incorporate mix vegetables into their food they love. But for a change you can always give them these cheesy potato bites occasionally as a side dish to cover that smaller compartment of tiffin box.
Here I will specify that these potato bites are good tiffin box idea for kindergarten and pre-primary kids only as they are too small to handle foods and eat on their own.
So these are those finger foods they would love to eat. Don’t give it daily. Just keep on changing variety and make the food interesting. Add veggies, lentils or whatever you feel good for your kid.
If you want to add veggies you can add boiled and mashed vegetables like carrots, green peas, french beans to such recipes and kids will surely love them. Read veg seekh kabab which is made with a combination of veggies and mashed potatoes. Make small patties and make burger or sandwich with that.
When they get habituated of eating on their own you can slowly increase the quantity and variety to their tiffin box.
