Finding a kid-friendly meal is no cakewalk!
Because many time kids choose junk food options such as Pizza, Burger, Fries etc. filled with carbs and fats over a healthy meal. These snacks may carb their hunger for the moment but they lack in essential nutrients such as fibre, magnesium, iron, vitamins and proteins, which are very important for your child’s overall growth and health. But there is one food option rich in nutrition content and is the most loved spread by all kids, Organic Peanut Butter. Made with only 100% Organic Roasted Peanuts, it is a rich source of protein with a minimum amount of healthy fats and is free of cholesterol and transfats.
Here is a list of some healthy recipes you can make for your kids using organic Peanut Butter:
1. Peanut Butter Ice-Cream
