@Pallavi Chaudry Hi Pallavi. My son was a very fussy eater. Now he is 5 and I have tried experimenting with his lunch box menu. It seems to have worked. You can make colurful sandwiches like the Tiranga Sandwich with Carrot, Cheese, Coriander and mind Paste. You can make Vegetable Rolls with Chappattis and fresh vegetables and a stuffing of boiled potatoes. Making wholewheat pooris with Chana or Rajma is also very appetizing. Smiley stuffed parathas (eg. cabbage, radish, potato, daal) with eyes, nose and mouth made up of cucumber. carrot and Tomato. Hope this helps!
@Leena Jumani I plan my menu for the week the previous weekend and this really helps me be more quick while cooking. Some of the healthy lunch box menus that I follow are: 1. Egg Sandwich - is filling and has sufficient protein and I usually include a lot of veggies inside. 2. Millets poha - I replace flat rice with different millet grains and make poha from it. This is something my kid started liking after 2 - 3 times. 3. Fruit and nuts smoothie - This is an accompaniment I give along with lunch. This is very filling and nutritious. I usually blend together a minimum of 3 fruits, a handful of different nuts and milk. I add little honey to it. 4. Veg noodles - This is easy and can be done even with our commonly available instant noodles. I load it with plenty of veggies and even one packet of noodles can serve two people easily.
