Most parents find themselves in dire straits over the fussy eating behaviour of their kids almost always. From buying the highest-quality 12-month baby food to preparing wholesome dishes for kids, parents try to ensure good health of their children in every way possible. And, when kids reject their efforts in a single go – it becomes downright frustrating!
Even after keeping nose to the grindstone, most parents fail to discover that mantra which can actually help the situation and make life easy for them. What goes wrong, you may ask? Well, the first thing that you need to have the utmost clarity about is that – Fussy eating behaviour is quite natural among kids. Your little one is exploring the food landscape and technically speaking, there is nothing wrong about it. However, there are various aspects to every situation and fussy eating behaviour of your kid isn’t an exception.
The problem arises when not-so-healthy foods make their standing more prominent in your children’s palate owing to their fussy eating habits. This is one of the reasons why parents are so stressed about it. And, we are definitely with parents on this! That’s why we are all set to give you some mindfully curated tasty yet healthy lunch box ideas for your little fussy ones.
Our goal here is to provide our kids with some super-creative healthy lunch box dishes that they can’t possibly reject.
Let’s dive in straight:
- Ragi Pasta
Almost every kid loves pasta, no questions about it! However, pasta made with plain starchy ingredients is not good for your kid’s health.

You just need to bundle up yourself for this tasty yet healthy preparation, so your fussy one doesn’t have the option to say NO.

Get dried organic ragi pasta and start cooking it like you normally do. Add a small amount of oil along with some oregano to get that awesome flavour. If you want, you can also add other dry herbs to this besides some garlic powder. Let it settle down a bit. Now come the pizza specials – cheese, olives, mushrooms and maybe pepperoni too. You can also add other veggies to the mixture as well to make it healthier.
It’s ready to make its way to your kid’s lunch box. You can also freeze it for further usage.
