  • 1 cup peeled and grated carrot
  • 1 cup chopped tomato
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • Pinch of sugar optional
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander
  • Salt to taste


  • Take the grated carrot and chopped tomato in a bowl. Younger kids find tomato peels difficult to chew. So if your toddler cannot chew food properly, peel the tomato before chopping it.
  • Add salt, sugar, and lemon juice, and mix well. (If the carrot is fresh and sweet, you don't need to add sugar.)
  • Add chopped coriander and mix properly. (Please wash the coriander, actually all the vegetables for that matter thoroughly as your child will be eating them raw.)


You can add chopped green chili in the salad if you are making it for grownups. (Deseed the chili before chopping it in small pieces.)
