But ofcourse frequent use of packaged food must be avoided. Once in a while, should be fine

Hey indu, although the mc Cain products do not harm the child.. But fried food does. I have bought the Phillips air fryer so that my kids also get their smileys etc, and I'm happy too not giving them that extra oil. Highly recommend the use of fryer..

Thanks Tanuja, in fact previously I used to use ready made tomato puree and ginger-garlic paste, but now reducing use of that too .... because of preservatives.

Hi Indu, Please avoid processed foods like these as much as possible, as they are full of preservatives like sodium which are bad for kids' health. Over-indulgence could lead to lifestyle ailments such as hypertension and diabetes on attaining adulthood. It is best to form healthy eating habits now as the children are more adaptable & compliant. Its difficult to change eating habits once they grow into adults.

I went to see a doctor about my daughters hyper behaviour and was strictly advised not to give a lot of packaged food, which also included noodles like Maggi. She asked me to limit such food to once a week. I suppose all mums would like to follow that advise.

Hi indu, i use it occasionally for my kids, on a regular basis a nicely done aloo tikki with only salt & aloo is a great option for toddlers, just shallo fry on a non stick pan with minimal oil.

Hey Indu, at the end of the day, these are processed foods. You may want to give them to your child as an occasional treat. I know how tempting and attractive they look to kids and it is difficult to say no. May I suggest trying to make some at home with biscuit cutters. They come in various shapes and I think you may find a smiley face too in any store selling utensils for baking.

hey Indu, we used to frequently have frozen snacks in our home, however recently I have stopped buying these to cut down my child's consumption of junk food. Once in a while is ok i believe. Also I know some friends who grill (oven-cook) these snacks instead of deep frying, which is not possible for all of us. I would suggest let your child enjoy these once in a while.. !

I give Mc Cain products to my son and touchwood so far he didn't face any health problem because of that. However I give it occasionally and not everytime because whatever said and done its ultimately junk food. Giving anything in moderation is not bad, is what I feel.
