Hello parents! What's on the food menu for the day? It would certainly be something that your kids love to eat. The moment your infant starts feeding on solids, you discover ways to satisfy their palates. You emerge as a scientist with an apron and a ladle, experimenting with recipes in the kitchen.

However, 80% of the parents complain that their kids are fussy eaters. Vegetables, fruits, nuts and seeds don't seem to find a way into their tummies. Then where do they get nutrition from? Here are some superfoods my super cool daadi suggested. Try these out and I'm sure they would pull your little one to the table.

Ask any child what their favorite vegetable is. They wouldn't think much before saying 'Potato'.  Instead of feeding children fried potatoes, try to make tasty Aloo Dum to make it nutrient-rich and healthy. Cook potatoes in the gravy of tomatoes and onions until the veggies go soft. Add some spices to elevate its taste. Mix this aromatic curry in hot rice, add some ghee and give it to your child. They would ask for more!

How About Some Protein?

Most of the children don't prefer to eat eggplant or brinjal. However, they are loaded with vitamins and minerals essential for the body. Daadi says, "Slice eggplant into thin pieces and dip them in a batter made of Chickpea flour or gram flour. Fry them until crispy and sprinkle some spices". Your kids can't stop themselves from clean-sweeping the plate.
