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.
