Time is a rare commodity on school days; Devansh and I are both crunched for time in the mornings. Devansh has to have his breakfast at 7 in the morning. He gets about 10-15 minutes to finish it and I get about 10 minutes to prepare it. I prefer to not send him to school on just a glass of milk. I also prefer to not send him with readymade, sugar- and preservatives-laden, and possibly GMO-laden options like cereals. But I am not one of those moms who can get up at 5:30 in the morning and start preparing elaborate breakfast and tiffin. So I rely on my tried and tested, simple and quick breakfast recipes. All these breakfast recipes contain milk as I don’t give Devansh milk along with his breakfast. These recipes don’t require a lot of chewing, as kids—especially smaller ones—take time for chewing food like parathas. I will also share with you tips that can help you prepare ahead of time and save your cooking time. Hope you find these healthy breakfast recipes for kids useful on school days.
Sweet Potato, Carrot, and Semolina Porridge Recipe
You can even call this sheera with carrot and sweet potato if you like. This tops the list of Devansh’s favorite breakfast dishes and he can easily have this every single day. On a lot of days I don’t have sweet potatoes, so I add only carrots in this sheera/porridge and my kiddo loves it. Made with beta-carotene and vitamins-rich carrots and sweet potatoes, breakfast doesn’t get healthier than this.
On weekends pressure-cook enough carrots and potatoes that you would need during the coming week. Mash them and freeze them in airtight, freezer-safe containers. You can use the mashed carrots and sweet potatoes while cooking on weekdays.
