Giving all you worried moms of fussy eaters new nutritious recipes which i found from different website dedicated for cooking. you can keep trying these recipes for your children. Atleast i keep trying these recipes for my 2 year old daughter and she eats readily !!! without much fuss. they may like some or the other recipes and you will be satisfied. the only thing you will need is patience and contribution of some time for making these recipes. some are instant but some are time consuming but it is worth when you see your kids eating them. All the below recipes are nutritious and healthy and nothing is fast food in it and you donot need to spend extra money to get these items as most of the items are ready at every home.

Ragi Dosai

Mix ragi flour, rice flour, salt, chopped corriander leaves, green chillies and onions. Add enough water and sour curds to form a batter of thin consistency. Set aside for two hours.

Heat a non-stick tawa and sprinkle some water on it. If it makes a sizzle sound the tawa is ready.

Pour a ladleful of batter on the outer edges. Conitinue to pour inwards, using a circular motion to make a dosai of 5-6 inches.

Smoothen gently with the back of the ladle to remove lumps if any. Pour oil all around the edges. Cook on both sides till golden brown.

Beetroot Halwa

Beetroot - 1 kg
Milk - 1½ litre
Sugar - 400 to 500 gm
Cardamom powder - 1 teaspoon
Saffron - few twigs
Ghee or Butter - 1 Tablespoon
Almond or Pistachio nuts - few, chopped (for decoration)
Method for making Beetroot Halwa
Peel and grate beetroot. Put milk and grated beetroot in a deep saucepan. Boil till the milk thickens, stirring occassionally. Once it starts thickening, stir continuously. Add sugar and cook further till the paste becomes more thick. Add ghee, cardamom, and saffron. Stir on low heat till the mixture collects in a soft ball or the fat oozes out. Serve hot, decorated with chopped almond or pista.

You can give her 1 slice of cheese as a substitute for 1 cuo of milk. You can even give her toasted cheese sandwiches, or add cheese to macaroni or pasta to make it more appealing. You can add milk to dishes so that she consumes it indirectly (adding it to white pasta sauces, sweets, kheers, etc). My son was never fond of milk, but he used to eat yoghurt (loved it, infact). So, try offering her a cup of yoghurt at the least, or a small bowl of yoghurt with lunch and dinner.

RE:A Glass of Milk for Your Kid
Its good for a child to drink milk on daily basis because it’s a good source of nutrition. Less than half a litre of milk is sufficient for a child. Milk provides vitamins which keep our bones and teeth strong.... - Czaee Amit Mishra [View Message]

Taking care of child’s eating habits is very important from childhood. A child should not snack too because that might cause indigestion and lead to stomach problems. Giving small meals in time intervals is the best way to take control of child’s diet.... - Czaee [View Message]
