Healthy Food for Healthy Kids - Rainbow Food for Toddlers | Event Announcement!

This month I am guest hosting Healthy Food for Healthy Kids - Rainbow Food for Toddlers event started by Nithu Bala. I am happy to host and thanks for the opportunity.

Preparing healthy food for kids is easy but making them eat is slightly difficult. Everyone would have prepared different dishes for your kids. So send them to the event. Its good start all kinds of foods to the baby, so they will know the taste and will not be fussy later on. If you ignore that this food should not be given now and all then after 4 to 5 yrs you have have problem in making them eat, which will end up preparing dishes of their favourite choice.

Its not necessary to make them eat a lot, just 1 or 2 spoons or mashed fruits will make the taste buds used to the dish. So, its good to start early and make them eat, then you need not worry later. Patience is really important and positivity is more important. If the child is not eating, leave them for 5 mins and then again try till they eat. Don't worry only till they get used to the taste, you have to be patient later on they can eat  anything you give.

Some general notes from Nithu before you cook.

There are few important things that we should be keep in mind while we prepare food for babies. 

1. Please wash hands before preparing baby food. 

2. Wash fruits and vegetables before cooking. 

3. Wash blender jar in clean water before blending anything for your little one.

4. Don't over cook or under cook. 

5. Please avoid additives like sugar, salt & fat. If you still want to use, keep them in minimum.

6. Most important thing is consult pediatrician regarding the food that may pose allergic risks to your baby.

7. Please don't use honey till your little one is one year old. Honey may cause rare form of food poisoning in babies. 

8. Avoid nuts in baby food preparation as they may pose allergy. 

9. Use separate vessels and a small pressure cooker to prepare baby food.

Rules :
1. Post a  healthy vegetarian recipe (No eggs allowed) between 10th June and 10th July-2012 for toddlers(1 -3 yrs) with colored fruits and vegetables. (Please utilize only the natural colors from fruits and vegetables in the recipe.
