What is your child’s absolute favourite food?
Mine’s rice for sure.
She can eat an entire bowl of plain rice if I let her! To balance her love for rice with better nutrition, I often let her have more protein (fish, beans) than rice during meal times. In this recipe, I added airfried salmon seasoned with garlic powder and mixed herbs, plus 16-grains, corn and edamame. The optional ingredient is cream cheese. It adds flavour and acts as a binder. It’s so good that even adults love this!
I have a picture of the multi grains I use over in this blog post. The last time I checked, it was still available on Redmart.
This recipe is really easy and requires no effort at all. Just cook rice, add in ingredients, bundle up in cling wrap for a minute or two and serve! Although it’s just rice, kids usually find finger food more fun to eat. Mix and match your kids’ favourite ingredients in this! Some ideas: prawns, scrambled or hardboiled eggs, peas, carrots, pumpkin all work well.
