I am very happy to host the kid’s delight event run by Srivalli of spice your life. The theme for this month’s kid’s delight is cooking with whole grains. Just to get a quick run through, what is a whole grain? Whole grain is something that contains all the essential parts of the entire grain seed in their original proportion. This means that 100 % of the original kernel’s proportion which includes the bran, germ and the endosperm must be present. Once the grain has been processed by either crushing it, rolling it, cracking it or made into flour, it should still deliver the same balance of the original kernel.
Obesity in kids is a raising problem in today’s world. Every country is facing this problem in its own way and the way to deliver the kids the nutrition they need lies in using more whole grains in their diet. The food is so processed by the time it is delivered that it loses most of its nutritional value and what is left behind is empty calorie.
I would like you to link up recipes that are kids approved and made with whole grain. It can contain any other ingredients, but the star ingredient or the main ingredient should be a whole grain in any form (flour, cracked, broken, cooked). The recipes could range from appetizers to desserts and anything in between. I am hoping that by the end of this month we would have a wide range of kid’s friendly recipe that is healthy as well as delicious.
