Do your kids come in from school and make a beeline to the kitchen looking for something to eat? If so, how can you can make sure they enjoy a snack while still saving room for a healthy dinner?
After coming back from school, children generally feel low, dull and inactive. They feel hungry and need something to eat. They often snatch a packet of chips, biscuit, chocolates or an ice-cream candy. But children should be given a healthy and nutritious snack and not junk or packaged food.
Here is an after-school snack idea for a healthy punch.
Peanuts and jaggery mixture right after school is extremely delicious, healthy and handy. You could add peanuts and jaggery as per your child’s taste. It is a complete meal, wholesome but not heavy to eat or even prepare. It is a super nutritious mix of micro-minerals, vitamins and polyphenols and also rich in essential fats, good for the heart and bones as well. This snack is especially beneficial for athletic kids and gymnasts in particular. Extremely high in antioxidants, the snack has vitamin B and minerals profile to ease puberty and cramps during periods.
You can even add a spoon of ghee to it if your child lacks immunity. Peanuts can be replaced by cashews too.
This snack is extremely healthy which every kid would love to have. Let our kids be healthier and happier in the future!
