Healthy Breakfast Recipe you can try with your kids

Like any mum I wanted to cook wonderful, creative and healthy meals for my kiddo. Even my Kid was never a fussy eater but I liked to make fancy, decorative and eye appealing meals/ snacks. But soon started to realize more I prepared Jazzed-up meals for him his expectation too increased there were times when I gave him simple dal, roti and he would make faces.




Let’s face it such meals can only be prepared once or twice in a week not everyday! We mums already have so much to accomplish everyday!

So here, are my simple yet delicious two recipe’s that appeal to kids eyes and help those taste buds to develop. These 2 recipe's can be combined to be served as a healthy breakfast.  This is usually our Sunday Breakfast!

5 YouTube channels for kids under Five



Hey Mommies,

There were times when our parents were the only YouTube available for kids.

If you were the 90's kid or before that, you will understand that only references and/or sources of information available to us were either text books or our parents.

But let me tell you technology is here to stay, and it's only growing we can run from it, hide from it but there is no way of completely shutting it out. So instead of hiding your kids from it and making them all curious at the later stages in life we can introduce it to them under parental control/ supervision.

From Rhymes to Physics Lessons everything is available on the internet. Youtube has somewhat never ceases to amaze me with 100 hours of video uploads every minute. The original YouTube has many channels for kids and Adults but if you want your kids to have restricted access you can use either turn on parental controls or download YouTube for Kids. But just setting up parental controls does not rule out the fact the content need to be constantly administered under parents.

So here is a list of , my personal recommendations of 5 YouTube channels tried with Kabbir,

Along the way, we learned a lot, laughed out loud, and fell in love with what YouTube -- at its best.


Top 5 YouTube Channels for kids under FIVE:


Sesame Street:

If you know Elmo then you would know Sesame Street. From the makers of Sesame Street Workshops, Sesame Street, the show was designed to use television to teach preschoolers, and give them skills that would ensure a successful transition from home to school. The show gave children a head start, and aimed to provide them with the confidence to learn the alphabet, numbers, and social skills. From the beginning (1969), Sesame Street has been the most thoroughly researched and tested television show ever produced, and it has received more Emmy Awards than any other program in television history. Their YouTube channel works on the same lines as the show.
Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird and friends are all here, along with vintage clips and musical videos.

Super Simple Learning- Kids Songs

This is Kabbir's favourite from the beginning I remember we had some memorable time exploring and learning through kids songs and rhymes. The Super Simple Songs Playlist features kids songs and nursery rhymes made Super Simple for young learners. Learn animal names and sounds, numbers, colors, parts of the body, seasons, abcs, and more!

Ryan Toys Review

Kabbir's current favourite includes Ryan Toy Reviews,

If your kids enjoyed EvanTube, then they'll love Ryan ToysReview because it gives you even more relatable interactions. Ryan reviews toys from Disney, Pixar, and more. Some of the more educational videos include his science experiments that'll teach kids and encourage familial interaction.

P.S: Kabbir actually considers Ryan to be his brother and wants to meet him. He actually tries some of his experiments with his dad at home. Everybody in our family knows who is Ryan!!!

ChuChu Tv:


ChuChu TV is the third most subscribed channel in India with over 10 million subscribers and over 8.5 billion video views. ChuChu TV consists of various YouTube channels for children that are dedicated towards creating 2D and 3D animation videos of traditional nursery rhymes with an incorporation of peppy music and a modern day aesthetic in them.

This channel worked for us as it has rhymes and songs that kids are taught specifically in India with an Indian accent that kids can relate easily. When we started Play School Kabbir was already familiar with the rhymes taught in his school. His personal favourite rhyme from there channel was Johny Johny, Yes Papa.

Mother Goose Club:

The six colorful characters (adults and kids) introduce little ones to nursery rhymes and other preschool classics, through movement, song, and skits. You can choose to watch single, short (1- to 2-minute) episodes or the channel's curated playlists (which run around 30 minutes).

Don't miss "Rockin Robot," a super catchy tune with fun robot moves that Kabbir found irresistible.

Mommy Verdict:

This list may find mom's wondering "So much screen time for kids!!!" but then with careful supervision and with proper parental controls, kids can actually use & benefit from technology. Limiting the Screen Time and carefully administering the content that they are access, can make a whole lot of difference and to be honest even helps moms to gain their adult sanity.

Do try the channels and if you like the recommendations do comment below!

Staying Connected with Grandparents

What do you remember about your childhood?
Playing around with your friends, your school, school friends, summer / winter vacations, meeting your cousins and last but definitely not the least your time spent with your Grandparents.
We used to live in a Nuclear Family and my Dadu and Dadi lived in a different city but I remember my mom and dad making a point going to meet them and talk to them whenever they can. My Nanaji and Nani stayed in the same city and either we or they came to visit every week.
The times may have changed but the love that grandparents share for their grandchild is and always will remain the same.
Even today when I close my eyes and remember the good times spent with them I remember stealing toffees that were kept under Dadu’s pillow, My Dadi teaching me acu-pressure benefits of folding hands and doing Namaste, I was so mesmerized by the speed by which my nani could knit even while she was talking to us or with her eyes closed and ofcourse my headstrong Nanaji who al…

Insecurities of a Working Mother

This article was way to important for me, had been waiting to write it down way before I even started thinking about blogging, yet this one took me the longest time maybe I am way too close to this topic and was continuously in search of the right tone to write about it. I wanted to be so perfect that somehow I was loosing my inner voice and true emotions. So today, I decided to let go of all apprehensions and write my heart out… So this article may offend a few people, or may have grammatical errors, syntax can be wrong but I am sure you will get the semantics.

I had emotionally rough pregnancy definitely not the cinematic version that I had imagined since my child hood it was way worse…somehow it passed and as Kabbir was born my worst nightmare began (which I can tell you all maybe in my next blog post). The Japa, the breastfeeding, the inconsolable new born crying his lungs out along with continuous pressure from the in laws to breastfeed the new born even when I was unable to feed d…
