Healthy Children-Friendly Foods

Some of the things that best characterize Ethiopian food refer to its hands-on approach, the small sized bites, and the great diversity of vegetables it consists of. Plus, the food here comes with many special flavors that cannot be found anywhere else on the planet, hence making it so unique. These properties also make this food appealing for your small ones, especially when it comes to teaching them the importance of eating more vegetables.


Serving Foods On The Injera

Most foods here are served on the injera, which is a flat bread with a spongy composition that is made from teff – an important whole grain that contains zero gluten. Children can use pieces of the injera to easily serve the vegetables on their eatable “plate”, which makes the eating process a whole lot more fun. Wots or meat stews are also best served while accompanied by injera. The nutritious value of the food in this country can help children ingest the right amounts of vitamins and minerals or protein and maintain their health. Speaking o maintenance, to maintain your house protected at all times, it is best to get in touch with a professional emergency locksmith in your area and make sure you and your kids are safe at all times.

Ethiopian food is also many kids’ favorite due to the fact it can be entirely eaten with the help of their hands; things can get a little messy, but messy is what smaller children like to begin with. This food also contains plenty of onions, garlic or eggplants which are cooked down and carefully hidden inside delicious meals. The simple cooking of the injera is another activity that many children like. Injera can be easily prepared like pancakes and the process can turn into a highly engaging and at the same time educational one. A trick to make your kids like injera faster – not all take it to the heart at first, as it has a sour taste and it has a weird texture – is to encourage children to pick up their veggies or pieces of meat with it.
