Parents should not take any unnecessary stress about cooking some special food for their kids older than 1 year. Anything that the whole family is eating can also be given to them as well. You just have to take care to keep away from as much salt in the food as could reasonably be expected. Obviously, this rule will not allow any takeaway fast food from restaurants as they have tons of salt. This article discusses various food recipes for your kid that are pretty easy to cook.

Mango Idli: 

Ingredients- mango pulp (1 cup), Plain dahi (1 cup), semolina or suji (1 cup),  Ghee, a bit of cardamom powder.


  • Roast the suji till it turns light brown in ghee.
  • Take mango pulp and other ingredients, make a paste of them and mix it with Semolina.
  • Add a bit of cardamom powder in the mixture and grease the idli pan with ghee.
  • Pour the mixture on the idli stand and keep it for steam cooking for 10 mins.
  • Idlis are ready to be served.

Ragi Halwa:

Ingredient- Ragi (1 cup), Jaggery (3/4 cup), cow ghee (1/2 cup), coconut milk and cardamom powder


  • Ragi must be soaked overnight before use.
