Are you tired of your picky toddler’s eating habits? Are you tired of the statements like ‘No, I’m not hungry’ and ‘I don’t like it, Mumma’?
Toddlers are usually fussy about eating. We moms are always worried about the fact that our fussy eater may not get the required nutrients, eating can become a challenge then. Fussy eaters run away from boring food and vegetables but a little variety and culinary skills can help you with mommy woes.
Here I am putting some healthy food recipes for toddlers. Hope it helps you deal with your fussy eater in a better way.
Soya Chunks Paratha

Boil soya chunks in water until they become tender. Drain excess water. Now heat oil in a pan, add cumin powder, soya chunk, and salt. Fry them for 4 to 5 minutes and let it cool for some time. Place this stuffing on the dough and make a crisp paratha for your fussy toddler.

Heat the oil in a pan and fry till it turns golden brown.

Take ragi powder, add water to make a smooth batter. Now add batter, ghee, jaggery and cardamom powder in a pan. Mix it well with continuous stirring. Remove it from the heat once it starts thickening. Garnish it with dry fruit powder.

Toddlers often go through stages of liking or hating certain foods. Please do not force them to eat, focus on the balanced diet. And I am sure you’ll be happy at having done a great job!
