My son is 1.5 years old and he is relatively an easy eater.
Whereever I go parents of young kids ask me what he eats and I thought I would share his routine diets. I am a big fan of eating the same thing each day! I know most people would get bored but my son seems to share my liking... I have a set routine and he eats the same stuff every single day... Of course, he would eat a little bit of my dinner/ breakfast / lunch as well but his meals are the same, taste the same, and prepared the same way each day. This routine helps me so much because I cannot afford to waste time thinking over food early morning while getting the kid ready, and myself ready to work....
I would like to pinpoint this is a blessing because when I go to work , I feed him breakfast in 10 min and drop him off with the nanny - I know how much more difficult it would be if I had a fussy eater :)
So today - I share to you my son's breakfast on most days! Rava Kanji.
He is old enough to eat dosas/ idlis/upma/ oats. I have fed him all of those and usually I experiment on weekends when I have the time and luxury. But on weekdays, when I am pressed for time, I make this and I consider this a filling breakfast for a 1.5 year old. It 's made of milk and sugar and for a one year old - milk contains all the nutrients they need plus he has veggies for lunch and dinner so I am not concerned if his breakfast is just carbohydrates!
Watching baby apps after completing his breakfast of rava kanji ...yes I cleaned the sofa after wards..
Chiroti Rava - 2 Tblsn
Ghee - 1 Tblspn
Water - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 tblspn
Roast rava with ghee.
Add water, milk, sugar - bring to boil until it forms a semi solid paste (similar to how you would cook oats)
Switch off. Transfer to vessel. Add more milk to bring to right consistency if it's too think.
If you are my son, you would eat this in 10 min :)
