For busy parents like you, weekends aren't all just about going out with the family and having fun. There are also errands to run and meals to be planned and prepared.
Coming up with the kids' (and your own!) baon for each day of the week can be challenging. You want something fast, easy, healthy, and something your kids will enjoy, but many baon ideas don't meet these criteria.
Not to worry—here are five no-fuss meals that your kids will love for their flavor, and that you will love for the easy preparation and the nutritional value. Just click on the dish names to get the recipes.
To make sure your kids get a good dose of potassium and other vitamins, introduce them to this tasty dish.
A side dish of banana and a few carrots and peas won't be too overwhelming even for those who don't like veggies much, because this dish has tomato sauce mixed in for that kick of flavor.
Tomatoes are rich in lycopene and vitamins A and C, so think about that the next time you whip up a tomato-based dish for the family.
There's nothing like the smell of different spices wafting through the kitchen to get your child or anyone in the family curious about the next meal.
Cumin, turmeric, and yogurt are staples in any Middle-Eastern kitchen. Make it yours, too, for their varied health benefits. Turmeric, for one, is said to have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects when taken in small portions.
When the kids aren't too keen on veggies yet and all they want to eat is corn, here's a baon option to keep them happy. They're served alongside protein-packed pork chops. (Note: Opt for other cooking methods like braising, grilling, or roasting to make a healthier dish.)
Cooking with chicken breast is a great way to introduce healthy eating to the family. Contrary to what you might think, it can actually be flavorful. Just mix it in with a fried rice recipe and add in some veggies.
Introduce your kids to omega-3-rich salmon. This simple recipe means quick preparation for moms and dads but can also mean that your kid will finally consider eating seafood. Give it that extra tamarind kick by adding Knorr sinigang mix.
These dishes might open your eyes to the possibilities of cooking easy, delicious dishes that are healthy, too. One brand that can help you through it is Knorr, which is out to promote home-cooked meals and proper nutrition through the Knorr Lutong Nanay Nutri Program.
