So, I’ve been asked so many times by fellow mothers, what do I feed my 15 months old ? So, here I’m starting a baby food recipe series, which will help out my fellow mothers in a great way. Here sharing an easy peasy recipe of Cheesy Baked Disks that is nutritious, yummy, visually appealing, has crunchy texture (which I believe is preferred by almost every toddler) and a big plus, this recipe is customisable to older kids and adults too.
It contains highly nutritious ingredients importantt for a balanced meal for your fast-growing toddlers. It has Paneer aka Cottage Cheese that is full of Protein, Fat, Carbs, Folates, Calcium and Phosphorus. I am also using normal cheese that has magnesium, zinc and vitamins A, D, and K meaning, it can contribute to healthy bone development in children. Cheese also contains Protein, Fat and Calcium. Now coming to Veggies! The beauty of this recipe is you can use your toddler’s favourite Vegetables into it. Here, I am using Capcicum which is a good source of: Vitamin A Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6 ,Vitamin B9 (folate/folic acid) ,Vitamin C ,Vitamin E ,Vitamin K Manganese ,Potassium. Corn Kernels that will add a little sweetness to the recipe and again has almost everything mentioned above. And Onion which is a good dietary fibre and has iron too. So, shall we begin?
Wholemeal Bread (cut in a circle shape)
Butter Spread of your Choice
Paneer aka Cottage Cheese (optional)
Cheese of your Choice
Finely chopped Onion
Finely Chopped Capsicum
Roughly churned boiled corn kernels
Salt and pepper (if your Toddler is fine with it)
All you need to do is mix all the ingredients well except the cheese and butter spread. Apply the butter spread onto the Wholemeal Bread disks, Top it up with the mixture, next top up with cheese and pop it into the oven on 180 degrees Celsius Or 356 Degrees Fahrenheit for 5 to 7 minutes until the edges of disk turns a little brown. And, here’s a delicious finger-food ready for your toddler!
I hope you and family would enjoy this recipe. Do lemme know how it turned out and whether or not you tried any variations
