How to make kids eat Lauki
I know. It is so difficult. In fact getting kids to eat green vegetables is tough but Lauki is on top of their never to eat list.
Lauki is packed with so many nutrition that it is every mother’s desire to make their kids eat it.
It is alkaline in nature, full of vitamins and minerals. It is very light and is digested easily.
In summers it is very healthy as it has a cooling effect on the body. Water content is quite high in Lauki that is why it has a hydrating effect.
Now how to make your kids eat Lauki.
I have tried many ways both successfully and unsuccessfully. I will share here with you successful ones.
I grate a piece of lauki and add it to rajma, chole, dal while boiling. It disappears after boiling and kids eat them quietly. This is my mother in laws tip.
Add red chilli powder, saunf powder.
Now you can make Roti/parantha or poori this way and kids will not even know that they are eating Lauki HAPPILY.
Note: Start with adding half quantity of lauki and then increase gradually.
