Most kids love pasta, pack Fusilli Pasta Recipe In A Spicy Roasted Beetroot Sauce with the goodness of beetroots. Vegetable purees help you feed your kids vegetables in a hidden form, that they do not usually enjoy eating. 

Parathas are easy to eat and most kids gobble up a paratha without giving much thought to the stuffing. But we definitely end up giving lots of thought to a stuffing that goes into a partha. Add radish with its greens not only increases the nutritional value of the parathas but also adds fiber to your kids diet. 

Packing healthy sides in a lunch box and giving healthy snacks are also very important. Bake or make snacks ahead so you can quickly add them to your kids lunch boxes.
