School Lunch Ideas for Kids

  1. Monday: Mini Burgers

Our cuties deserve these cuties; it is Monday for them too. Certainly, Mommies will have to work a little on Sunday night to fix mini burgers for their tiffin on Monday. Very healthy patty made up of spinach, green peas etc are used to make this kids’ tiffin recipe, but shhh… it is between us because kids won’t come to know that they are eating so many greens. Use whole wheat buns and make these mini burgers.

  1. Saturday: Instant Sooji Cheela

Whenever you pack any paratha or cheela the best way to do that is by rolling it and securing with some food wrap or toothpick (make sure the child is mature enough to carefully remove and discard the toothpick, otherwise avoid it.) And if it is a fussy item, don’t forget to drizzle little ketchup.

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!.
