Healthy Recipes For Your Kids

Posted on 05 January 2011 by admin

Don’t have enough time in your hands to do some real cooking in your kitchen? If you’re a parent with little kids, this can be a problem. Children are not easy to feed. They usually pass a stage when all they want are junk foods, fried chicken, hotdog—processed foods you’ll find in supermarkets and fast food chains. The problem is, much as they enjoy these foods, they’re dangerous to your children’s health. The challenge to all parents like you is to prepare delicious and nutritious food for your kids. And in most instances, squeezing cooking time in your daily schedule isn’t at all easy. What you’ll need are the right healthy recipes that are both delicious and easy to prepare.

Yes, there are recipes that combine all three characteristics—quick preparation, good nutrient content, and great taste—and your kids will surely love the food.

Kid-Friendly Snacks

Although you may think that snacks are of little value compared to the main meals—breakfast, dinner, lunch—what your kids snack on are actually crucial to their health. Snacks are usually taken anytime of the day: when kids are watching television, after playing, or whenever they feel like eating. Without close monitoring, your kids can easily grab junk foods and unhealthy meals during these times. The key to controlling this is to prepare delicious treats for your kids with the help of healthy recipes.

Believe it or not, there are some nutritious treats that you can prepare with no effort at all. Just take a look at the following:

•    Smoothies. Instead of the usual ice cream or artificial drinks from the supermarket, why don’t you make these delicious treats out of fresh fruits? With the use of a blender, all you need is to toss in some fruits, milk, juice, or yogurt, and then press the blend button. In no time at all, your kids will enjoy a delicious and nutritious shake.

•    Jelly. All that you will need to prepare this snack are gelatin and fruit juice, plus other extras you might want to add like yogurt, fruits, etc. The preparation only involves simple cooking of the gelatin, some mixing and pouring, and then the refrigerating of the finished jelly for that wonderful taste. This is a typical favorite among kids.

•    Home-made popsicle. Well, this is a no-brainer snack, and even your kids can prepare it. All you’ll need is a fruit juice or fruit shake that you pour into a mold. Next thing you must do is put the stick on the mold and then place it in your freezer. Once it’s frozen, your kid will have an instant healthy popsicle!

•    Nuts, seeds, and dried fruits. Instead of the usual chips, these are healthy alternatives. Plus, they need no preparation at all. Just be sure that you don’t add salt on the nuts and seeds.

With all these ideas, you’ll have no problem keeping your kids healthy while they enjoy the food they eat. And for a lot more kid-friendly and healthy recipes for your diet, you can find more information in cookbooks and online sites. They’ll help your kids and your family stay healthy.
