    As a working mom with a nine-to-five job and a toddler girl to tend to, mornings are my busiest time of the day. I wake up, take a bath, get ready and rush to the kitchen to prepare meals for my little girl – breakfast and lunch. I am hence always on the lookout for new recipes which are delicious as well as high on nutritive content. It also helps a lot if the recipes are easy to make and fall in the category of 'quick-fix'.


    While I keep on experimenting with different recipes every couple of months or so, there are 3 basic power packed foods which I swear by. I have been giving them to my little girl ever since she was introduced to solids. Moreover, the best part is – she doesn't easily tire of them.

    I like to call these 3 recipes 'Power Breakfast Foods', because –

    1. They are high on nutritive content.

    2. They are filling and keep my child satiated for good 2 hours or so.

    3. They are also energy-packed and help my girl keep up her energy levels.

    4. Finally, they are rich in vitamins, minerals, and lipids, which possess endless benefits for growing.

    So here are my power foods which I serve to my little girl, at least 4 times a week:

    1. Sweet Dalia (Broken Wheat) with Milk -
    Broken wheat is high in fibre content, and we all know how good fibre is for the body, especially for bowel movement. It will also help alleviate problem of gas and constipation in your child. Broken wheat is also high on potassium content. Potassium promotes heart function, strengthens the bones and aids in the contractions of muscles.

    TIP: You can add cut fruits to the above preparation to increase its nutritive value.


    2. Plain Egg Mash -
    This one is as good as the traditional Indian egg bhurji we make – the only difference being, there aren't any veggies in this one. I just add 3-4 tbsp of milk in the egg while whisking, to make the preparation fluffier. Eggs are a powerhouse of proteins. They are also a good source of iron which helps prevent anemia among kids.

    TIP: This is especially a good recipe for when your child desires to have something plain and simple.

    3. Wheat and Ajwain (Carom) Paranthas -
    These are my on-the-go favorite munching paranthas till date. My mom used to make them for me when I was a child, and I continued the tradition with my daughter too. They are a quick-fix when you sometimes run out of ideas – or groceries! – for your next meal. Wheat is a good source of carbohydrates and is easily available all around the world. Ajwain, on the other hand, has gastro-protective properties which are sure to keep your little one's stomach healthy and guard her against flatulence and indigestion even. Up here in North India where I live, these are popularly known as Namkeen Paranthas.

    TIP: You can add a dollop of home-made ghee to these paranthas. Home-made ghee will supply your child with essential fats, which are so good for her body!

    So these are my three power-packed, go-to, easy breakfast fixes. Hope they become a hit with your little one too, as they are with mine!
