Kids Friendly Recipes

These are the trickiest ones because the toughest to please are the kids! If you ask kids the definition of balanced diet he/she would say “balanced diet means cupcakes in both the hands” But Mommies know the different definition of balanced diet, the correct definition. Kids are fussy as well as smart. They won’t settle for anything boring or monotonous. So a balance needs to be maintained. The food for kids should be healthful as well as enticing. Following are some food items that are always a hit amongst the kids.

  • Bite size food: Size does matter and our little ones are attracted towards the bite size food. They find it convenient to eat and especially if there is a birthday party or get together, these dishes are absolute crowd pleasers.
  • Fruit-based desserts: The best way to introduce fruits in kids’ diet is to make desserts which are colorful and therefore appealing, appealing enough for everyone and not just kids.
  • Finger food: Kids love to have finger food as it is fuss free to finish it and can be eaten on the go. Rolls and sandwiches are the best examples of finger food.

About the Author

Author’s Name


Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
