Oats used in Healthy School Snack Recipes for Kids

Oats is the perfect healthy cereal to use as a base for healthy snacks for kids. Oats are a great source of protein for Vegetarians. It is rich in soluble fibre (to make it good for diabetics), which helps lower blood LDL cholesterol, the so-called "Bad" cholesterol. Kids love their savoury snacks for school. Ragi and Oats Cracker is light on the stomach.These Ragi and Oat Crackers are all the better, as they are made with wholesome ragi, oats and whole wheat flour, perked up with olive oil and other seasonings. Olive oil gives these tasty crackers an exotic aroma and a wonderfully crisp texture too, without oodles of butter or other oils.

Healthy School sweet Indian Snack Recipes for Kids 

Healthy School sweet Indian Snack Recipes for Kids. At school, kids want to dig into sweet food so its better to provide some healthy options instead of them buying cheap ice-creams for Rs 40/. Try Date and Nut Coconut Balls. While there is nothing so new about making laddoos out of dry fruits, the coating of coconut and cocoa gives the balls an absolutely new dimension. Coating one side of the ball with coconut and the other side with cocoa not only gives it an all-new taste, but also a very appealing appearance with brown and white hues. Usage of dates as a sweetener is far healthier than sugar and the nuts are always healthy.
