Dinner at Five .imageEncourage Older Kids to watch while you are cooking Simple meals. This not only provides Confidence but help to learn basics and educates them on nutrition.It is a great learning Opportunity for Kids. I started a new Category in my Blog (Dinner at Five.) Sometimes I  prepare different Dinner than regular Roti and Curry to create interest in Kids about Dinner. I do some Preparation day before to make work easier the next day. Cooking Noodles and season them with Salt and Spices and refrigerate . I didn’t add any Sauces because my Kids are not Big fan of Sauce in the Noodles . It was a change with just Vegetables , Noodles and Freshly ground Spices. Prepare Salad ahead of time when ever you are free  and refrigerate . Simple salad with few easy available ingredients from your Pantry . Season with Salt and Spices before you serve. To bring the Salad to room temperature keep on the Kitchen Counter 2 hours before you serve. Finished the Dinner with Simple Dessert – Cheese and Fruits . I hope your Kids will like this Combination of Dinner. Share your feedback by Commenting.
