Children need to eat a rainbow of colors; eating healthy foods will provide better immune system  and  lower  the risk of diseases . Children and adolescents do not get enough Calcium ( diary products and Green leafy vegetables) Potassium ( Legumes and Potatoes) Fiber ( Whole grains , fruits and Vegetables) and Vitamin D & E ( Sunshine and fortified diary products) . Children will get essential nutrients if we include Whole grains, legumes , fruits and vegetables in their diet. Kids needs 5 serving of fruits and vegetables every day. Preparing Lunch / Lunch Box doesn’t need to be a chore. If you have noticed by now I’m a big fan of home cooked food and like to do preparation ahead of time ( day before) and spend less time  cooking ( say 10 to 15 minutes)  during Lunch / Dinner .Today I’m sharing a simple recipe that you can prepare in a single Pan and easy available ingredients from your pantry and refrigerator. Prepare the Kebabs ahead of time and refrigerate and Pan fry them before you serve for Lunch / Dinner. or else grind / Mash chickpeas  and chop the vegetables and refrigerate . Make patties and pan fry before you serve for Lunch / Dinner.
