very informative. But the problem is when the child is alone or at home she eats all these. But in the school when she sees the other children eating potato chips or any other junk food she takes interest in those things. Unless all the parents feel the same it is difficult. Even the school can not ban these things!

These r the best food selections for children tiffin box. If black peppers can be used instead of chilli powders it will add more benefits. Another Idea is to add some dry fruits for daily tiffin box that will help in boosting immunity and for sharp memory.
