After School / Lunch Box Sweet Treats

Recipes Cooked, Photographed and Written by Praveena

Parenting always involves / demands for responsibility and decision making, regarding our children. Where a child’s food intake plays a significant role for their overall growth. Packing a kid’s lunch box day-to-day needs lot of effort not just for preparing the items but even in giving healthy & balanced food. 

I always prefer and prepare ONLY homemade healthy snacks & treats for after school or lunch box. Here I made a collection of sweet treats which I made on different occassions. Apart from the below mentioned, I make many other healthy, traditional sweets / dessert that can be self fed by little children and can be carried easily in the lunch box / for any travel with children.

To me and my family, Makara Sankranthi / Pongal / Poush Sankranthi is the most joyous of all the festivals. Its a 4 day long festival, and the preparation commences from a week before. Which starts from house-cleaning, what toys to go on the BOMMALA KOLUVU (display of toys in an array), preparing the  festive goodies well before, to invite guests for PERANTAM (haldi-kumkum), what traditional dresses to wear, the RANGOLI, etc…. My daughters are double excited about few of these and my son above few other. 🙂 

My son’s birthday, comes a week before this festival. So after all that fun, starts this festive prep. Hence, I have 2 full consecutive busy weeks but I thoroughly enjoy!!!

This platter is a festive meal which is prepared on the same day and offered to the God during the special festive pooja. I truly enjoy cooking festive lunches, though there are few difficulties like bare footedly standing on the very cold kitchen flooring for long time. (We dont wear slippers while cooking, strictly during the festive days.) Which I dont sense while cooking as I am totally immersed, but later it does effect.

Anyhow, have a look at the below platter, just added few recipe links which I already have in the site, for others I shall add the recipes later.
