    Tasty and healthy Indian breakfast recipes that kids will absolutely love

    Rise and shine, it's morning time! And nothing quite as sprightly as beginning your day with a good breakfast spread. It gives you the right nutrition and the much-needed energy to get started. School or office, breakfast gives the body the refueling it needs for the day ahead, after going without food for several hours during sleep time.

    A healthy breakfast is particularly important for growing children. A balanced meal helps them maintain a healthy weight and boosts their overall well-being and immunity. Kids who eat breakfasts regularly, tend to be more energetic, have better concentration and fewer behavioral problems.

That's why Chef Mohit Chotrani of The Sindhi Kitchen is here to share six delicious recipes of dishes that are just right to be served at breakfast time!
