When it comes to making yummy food for our little one which is healthy yet tasty is big challenge. Since the birth of my baby boy, I became obsessed to make healthy and nutritious food for my little one. And mostly every mother goes through this phase like we are on some grand mission of raising a healthy child. I suggest not to obsess over it like I did, but I learnt lately that trying to incorporate good food from starting is good idea. Now I am very easy with all food items but still I make sure they are not just calories and have at least some nutrition.
So while he was six months old I started self learning about food and nutrition from internet, other mothers, my own mother, my grandmother who all are very rich source of information, while comparing that information on Google and other blogs, solving this food Rubik’s cube through different permutation and combination and finally jotting down few recipes which now are part of his daily food intake.
There is a little struggle for introducing new food item to him, like any other child but as the taste develops slowly and gradually he is used to eating it now. These sheera is by far his favourite and yes it actually does taste good, even adult can have this easily
½ cup boiled beetroot puree
1tbsp suji/ semolina
1 tbsp nachini (finger millet flour)
4 pitted black dates / jaggery
½ tbsp almond powder
½ cup water
1 ½ tbsp ghee/ unsalted clarified butter
½ spoon shredded dry coconut (optional)
You can pre roast good amount of suji and nachini in ghee and store it in refrigerator.
Instead of beetroot puree you can use beetroot juice also. But if you use the juice, then don’t add water.
You can make dates puree before hand and refrigerate it. To make dates puree, steam the dates with little water and churn them in grinder. But this should be used within a week.
You can use coconut oil instead of ghee.
stay healthy and love your kids
lots of love
