I try to make home made snacks for the little one whenever possible. I would be lying if I say everything she eats is healthy. We do indulge her with her favorite storebought cupcakes and sweets once in a while.. Few days back I asked in IG stories what kind of content people like to see in my blog and the majority of response was Easy Toddler Snacks & healthy ish snacks for adults too. Honestly during the lockdown period it is very difficult to stop kids & as well as adults from eating junk or processed foods..The struggle is real. We all have our worst days where we are exhausted to the core. We end up indulging on snacks that are totally unhealthy. Then there are days when our energies are up and high.During that time I usually try and prepare some homemade snacks to eat throughout the week. This carrot halwa bites can be prepared a day in advance and can be stored in fridge too. Perfect during Navarathri days when there are more guests coming. We can serve this along with sundal.
Roasted Makhana, Puffed Rice, Roasted nuts,Porridges and Homemade Laddoos are my standard go to option. If you check the hashtag #resh_toddlersnack in Instagram you will find lots of laddoo varities. This carrot halwa bites is inspired from our traditional Carrot Halwa recipe. Though it takes a long time to make, I used condensed milk to make these bites quickly as well used a mix of seeds+nuts to make it slightly healthier. This can be a great snack for adults when we crave sweets post a heavy lunch. You can use your own choice of nuts and seeds. The following measurement yielded around 12 medium sized Carrot Halwa bites. Adjust measurements accordingly
