    About Del Monte
    Moms are always on the lookout for healthy, delicious foods that keep their household happy and disease-free. This is why we partnered with Del Monte to invite freshness and nutrition into your kitchen.
    From a healthy breakfast recipe for kids to savoury snack dishes, from bakery products and smoothies to simple baby food, prunes can be a wonderful add-on to your kids’ daily diet. Prunes or “dried plums” are a great source of dietary fibre, vitamins and antioxidants – just what your growing children need. Not just that, they also help fight with conditions such as constipation and keep your child’s skin and hair well-nourished and healthy. Their antioxidant power builds natural resistance and vitality. With so many benefits packed inside, it goes without saying that prunes should become an essential component of daily meals.


    But when you’re thinking about getting the kids excited about prunes, the shoe starts to pinch! Prunes are, ultimately, dried fruits. And we know how excited fruits make kids! Yes, prunes can be eaten directly from the packet as a snack or served as-is in a tiffin-box. But you’re much more likely to see success with these recipes that are an original and yummy mix of the healthy and the contemporary!
