Peanuts and jaggery mixture for post school hunger

By | January 15, 2019

Week 2 guideline of the 12 week fitness project 2019 – Peanuts and jaggery mixture right after school instead of biscuits/ chips/ chocolates.

Our children often come back home from school feeling a bit low on energy. They are hungry and need something nutritious to eat. But this is also the time when they refuse to sit down and have a proper meal. This snack is the perfect solution for these kind of situations, and ensures that they stay off junk food.
• It’s handy
• Can be had in car, bus or while walking back from school or as soon as you reach home
• Allows kids to choose proportion of peanuts and jaggery as per their taste

Why peanut and jaggery?
• Complete meal, wholesome but not cumbersome to eat or even prepare.
• A super mix of micro-minerals, vitamins and polyphenols.
• Rich in essential fats too, good for the heart and bones. Especially good for athletic kids and gymnasts in particular.
• Extremely high in antioxidants, making it a boon for kids who don’t like eating fruits.
• Has the minerals and Vit B profile to ease puberty and cramps during periods.

Options –
• You can use cashews instead of peanuts too.
• Add 1-2 tsp of ghee if your kid is allergic or low on immunity.
• You can even garnish this with fresh coconut or eat it with a piece of dry coconut. Especially recommended for kids who are fighting obesity, diabetes or fatty liver.
• In summers, you can even use ghee roasted kurmura or lahya and mix peanuts with it instead of jaggery.

Teach your kids to eat in sync with the crop cycle. This is the way to stay healthy and fit in the future too. Happy Makar Sankranti.
