    So this is a sample of what I feed my kids

    I know as parents we're always looking for ideas from each other so we can offer the most well balanced meals to our kids. What I try to do is offer a starch/carb + protein + veggie in each meal. Breakfast has dairy, fruit and protein + starch. Snack is usually fruit or yoghurt. Dinner is same as lunch where sabzi could be veggies in a salad. Milk and a small snack before bedtime.

    My kids are very picky eaters and I've seen that small portions of a variety of choices helps them enjoy the options and they don't feel overwhelmed.

    Here's today's lunch:

                What black crap? The salan on the left is kaali masoor ki daal. I don't put garam masala pieces in my daily food. That must be a piece of fried onion from the tarka.

                  No longay either? I thought longay and garam masala were the staple of desi food, but I guess it must be different for indian dishes.

                  I am ok with fried onion, though my brother hates them with a vengeance for some reason.

                      Longay/laung = cloves... I use cloves and mace and stuff in my cooking but I mash it all in a grinder so that it turns into powder..my husband doesn't like whole spices.

                      Using "crap" with food isn't cool!

                        If those things end up in my food, at least I fight a big urge *not* to puke. I still don't get it that why does one put it in the food if you are to throw it away anyway. It reminds me of my gora supervisor, who ended up going to a marriage in the family of one of his employees at the other store and he ended up with a bunch of garam masala in his mouth. It was hilarious as he told me how small black balls exploded into his mouth leaving a nasty taste!

                        YIKES longay flavored food!!!!

                          Jeez what a drama queen I used to get those too when my mom cooked....I hated it, but it wasn't that big a deal.

                          and the lfood isn't FLAVORED like longay...it..just adds to the taste, anyways you don't use much of it, lik emaybe 1/8th teaspoon

                            My kids eat similar things too but without the the division. Plain boiled rice with any type of daal - massor, masar. lobia, chanay, toor.

                            Lately they like chicken a lot too.
                            A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

                              That is pretty neat.
                              I love deadlines. I love the whooshing noise they make as they go by.
