As you all know, I started with my diet during January 2017. After I started my diet, I became so involved in it and I was scared of giving Sruti any dish that was not healthy. So I started using cane sugar for her instead of refined sugar. But then I read in the group that for kids diet should be started at the age of 18. Until then it is better to feed them good food and avoid junk. But I also learnt that they can follow partial paleo by reducing carbs on one or two meals while having a normal carb filled food for one meal. So the first change I made in Sruti’s diet is breakfast. We started with butter coffee. Both hubby and myself take butter coffee for our breakfast and so I made it for Sruti one day, but with necessary changes so that she would love it. I was really happy that she liked it so much that she didn’t even complain.
This version of butter coffee is simpler than the one we drink. And I also add sugar to it as I really didn’t want her to drink it with out sugar at this age. Slowly she learnt to make butter coffee herself and nowadays, it is her duty to make it for herself. And sometimes when I am tired or engrossed in some other work she also makes it for me too. It is such an easy recipe. Only thing you need is a hand blender, which will be very easy for kids to handle. This is such a filling drink, and they can manage three hours without asking anything to eat. The butter takes care of satiety. This was the new dabara I bought last week. It was meant to take only food photos for the blog, but Sruti wanted it for herself. So we are sharing it now! And the step wise photos were taken by Sruti herself. I guess she would make an amazing assistant for me in the future. She even plans to start her own food blog sometime.
