Thai food is quite easily one of the most flavourful and delicious Asian cuisines. We love it for the way it really packs a punch in terms of ingredients that really stand out boldly. It's one of those cuisines that demands that you use only the freshest herbs, reach out for spices you would otherwise shy away from, and bring it all together with a terrific blend of spicy, sweet, tangy and salty tones. The truth is, Thai food is not hard to make at home. Easier still, is a vegetarian Thai menu. And so this weekend, we have a medley of Thai flavours to woo you into the kitchen.

 I love winters. With winter comes the nature’s best produce. Every year I get excited at the first sight of orange, carrot, green peas and bountiful seasonal veggies and fruits in the market. With winters slowly slipping away only to reappear the next year, let’s plan this weeks snack box and lunch box menu using the season’s fresh.

We have included recipes like ‘Gajar ka Halwa’, ‘Palak Paneer’ ,'Methi Matar Pulao' and more. We have also tried to include fresh fruits like orange and strawberries in the boxes. The snack boxes can be packed for kids age 3 and above and the lunch boxes can be packed for kids age 6 and above and even for working adults.

Print the nutri-healthy snackbox and lunchbox menu and let your family enjoy the feasts!

The Lemon Rice when packed into the lunch box along with either a raita, butter milk or curd rice, makes the kids lunches wholesome and easy to eat. Children love mixed rices, as it is easy to eat and quick to digest as well. The quick digestion from the rice gives the children the quick energy for them to get back into their school work. A very popular belief is that the rice puts the kids to sleep, but that not true, it in fact gives them that instant energy for the day

The Ragi Idli Milagai Podi smeared along with Idli Milagai Podi and packed with Cheese & Walnuts makes is a quick and simple snack box. I make the Idli Milagai Podi at home, and make sure to add less chillies to it, so the kids can eat it along with idlis. This podi, makes their snack boxes less messy. But if you children like it with chutney, then you can smear the idlis with chutney or even jam to suit your child's preference.

The Aloo Poha when packed along with Cheese & Walnuts is a quick and simple snack box that kids are able to eat in a  jiffy.

Keeping small portions, helps the children to focus on their food and complete them without wasting it.

The Rava Dhokla when packed along with Cheese & Almonds is a quick and simple snack box that kids are able to eat in a  jiffy. First reason is that it's easy to eat. They can simply hold it in one hand and gobble it up. You can even keep some jam or chutney by the side for them to dip the dhokla and give it an additional taste.

The Kuthiraivali Upma Kozhukattai Recipe is a twist to the traditional Kozhukattai recipe and is a healthy lunch box that you can put together with a little planning.
