Packing a lunch box with new and innovative recipes on an everyday basis can be tricky! Be it for kids or adults, nobody likes to eat the same food and hence mothers have to break their heads thinking of what should they make for lunch, which will be delicious, nutritious and something interesting that will keep the kids (and themselves too) hooked to the food!
So, what should an ideal lunch box consist of? According to studies, along with carbs and protein, an ideal lunch box should consist of enough fibre, vitamins and minerals to ensure that you or your children is/are getting a balanced food platter, ideal for sustainable growth and development.
So, in this article, we will share with you several lunch box ideas, from stuffed parathas to toothsome side dishes that can be easy to carry in a lunch box!
Say yes to veggies
We all know veggies play a super important role in our food platter, catering us the right amount of nutrients and a low-calorie filling meal. Yet, in most of the cases, it is impossible to feed the children all the veggies which are essential for them. To make sure your kids are having veggies in the right amount, give the regular side dishes a break and stuff veggies in a paratha or puri. Try our cabbage paratha for example! Or you can also make this vegetable dosa, which is a hit among people of all ages.
Traditional Food palettes
Often, we ignore the traditional food platter which can be quite nutritious as well. Nothing beats a sumptuous bowl of upma or poha, or if you want something super healthy, try our quick and easy rava dosa recipe.
For us adults, when we are picking a lunch box, picking side dishes become really difficult, as we do not want the same side dish every day and nobody has the time to make an elaborate side dish! To make this super easy for you, we are sharing our simplest of side dish recipes, which can be made within 15 minutes and are quite nutritious as well!
