~Oatmeal Fun-1 ~

~ Oatmeal Fun-1 ~ 

A big bowl of oatmeal with loads of diced 
seasonal fruits and a light drizzle of honey 
is my most loved breakfast. Over the years 
the Indian market has seen a sudden boost in 
the oatmeal sector, from plain oats to flavored 
from sweet toppings to savoury Indian versions, 
the humble bowl of oatmeal has come a long 
way. Oats is nothing less than a power food, 
being rich in dietary fibre, it helps one feel 
fuller for a much longer period of time and 
makes a perfect kid friendly breakfast too.If 
your child turns up his nose at the bowl of 
plain/regular oatmeal get ready to play 
and boost its nutritional value with some 
colourful  fruits.

banana ,strawberries ,black grapes and pepitas.

Many a times parents ignore 
the role of adding a fun element to food but 
involving them or taking out extra 2 mins to 
make  their foods cute and inviting surely 
works in the long run. A colorful customised 
meal for them is a great way to encourage kids
 to eat healthy.My daughter loves oatmeal and
today we decided to breathe in some life to the
bowl of goodness. As a toddler she loved the
famous Aesop fable of 'The fox and the grapes'
so we decided to add some grapes to make our
oaty fox happy !!

~ Easter 2015 ~

Easter is just around the corner and I am
 sure lil ones at your house too are hopping around
 and  enjoying their easter/spring  break. The earthy
 smell of spring ,with a hint of summer in the air,
is totally divine. Warm  sunshine has bid adieu to
 the last winter blooms. The  chrysanthemums 
and charismatic dahlias have been taken over by 
vibrant hibiscus and soothing periwinkles and 
of course ruby Easter lilies are blooming all over.

Easter is incomplete without Easter eggs, chicks n 
bunnies.With Easter crafts and egg painting 
activities  almost dying in schools these days, I 
decided to involve my daughter and pep up some
 easter fun for the two of us at the breakfast table
 today. While she happily applied some peanut 
butter to bread I quickly chopped some fruits.

Easter surely takes me back to my childhood 
days when the school canteen was filled with 
 pastel coloured sugar eggs with intricate 
royal icing patterns on them, the most exciting
 part of these eggs was to split them open and
 find an array of candies.We used to call these
 sugar eggs as golden eggs that laid candies. 
Although that old world charm is not
 available at bakeries anymore but this 
power breakfast with some eggs,milk and
 loads of my old world  stories surely added
 a zing to the breakfast.
