Kids always show less interest to the traditional idlis especially for the lunch box. Masala Idli / Idli Upma would be of more interest to them and they would surely love it. We can also add some vegetables like carrot, potato, beans and peas to make it more healthier.

It is very simple to make masala idli. All we need is 3-4 steamed idlis with onions, tomatoes and vegetables and make it less spice. As we have some spice, vegetables in this recipe, we don't need any accompaniment for this yummy dish. Package this masala idli with fruits and juice or yoghurt and make this lunch more healthy.

Lemon rice, one of the traditional lunch box rice variety given for kids. Very simple lunchbox dish and I believe all kids are crazy about this yummy lemon rice. My daughter always jumps to have this for her lunchbox. Lemon rice with any vegetable stir-fry is a great combination. I always prefer to do ladysfinger fry as an accompaniment for this lemon rice

As this is a rice variety, it is rich in carbohydrate, so substitute this rice with nuts and fruits to make this lunch box healthy.

Chickpeas rice, a very tasty rice and healthy rice variety for kids lunchbox. The current generation kids love to have different dishes for the lunch box and they do not always like to have our traditional variety rices like lemon rice, coconut rice etc. Chickpeas rice is so yummy and healthy as chickpeas are rich in protein. Always add less masala while making this rice for packing the lunch as many kids dont like more masala. We can pack yummy cucumber raita or tomato raitha as a sidedish for this yummy rice. Though chickpeas are protein rich, still this is a rice variety and hence we need to substitute with fruits and some kids of juice or soya milk.

Mini Oothappam, a perfect lunchbox dish for the kids. Traditional crispy and thin dosa will become very dry for the lunch time. It would be very important that the dish we keep for lunch should be fresh, soft and yum. Oothappam are little thick and mini oothappam with different garnishing would attract the kids. Kids especially like carrot, paneer or the plain podi oothappam. Adding different vegetables / paneer is making this dish healthier too. 

Mini oothappam are easy for the kids to take it in fork and have it without having them use their hand also :-). We can make some dips for this yummy mini oothappam like mint chutney, coconut chutney or even ketchup which are kids favourite dips! As we are using rice for making oothappam batter which are rich in carbohydrate, we need to supplement this with fruit, juice and some nuts and pack them all to get a healthier lunchbox for the kids!

Rajma Chawal, a delicious rice variety and a great lunch box delight for kids. We always pack lemon rice, coconut rice or mint/coriander rice often but Rajma chawal is more healthier and a different variety of rice which kids would love to have for their lunch. Since it is a rice variety, obviously it is rich in carbohydrates but still rajma beans has many health benefits. It is rich in iron. Rajma improves the bowel movement, High magnesium content and fiber in kidney beans is responsible for lowering bad cholesterol levels.

To make this lunch a balanced diet, we can plan to pack carrots or cherry tomatoes along with rich vegetables. We could also pack either yoghurt or fresh juice along with this yummy lunchbox.

Vegetable Toast, a very healthy, crunchy and yummy lunch box dish for kids. Toasted bread slice has a little fat though it is rich in carbohydrates and protein. Still we can make it healthier by adding healthier vegetables and also we should plan to pack more protein and also some juice to make the whole lunchbox more balanced. Always try to use whole brown bread for more healthier dish. Always whole wheat bread are healthier that too we could also use seeded bread which is more healthier. 

Pack this wonderful vegetable toast with carrots and cherry tomatoes and I bet the kids would finish off the whole lunch and they will ask you to pack this lunch so often.

Like noodles, Vermicelli is also a favourite dish for kids. Preparing semiya pulao is quite easy and we can enrich its taste by adding healthy vegetables like carrot, beans, peas. We can also add grated paneer to attract the kids. Generally Vermicelli is rich in carbohydrates. We can pack a variety of raitha for this pulao. Its a fact that 1 cup of cooked Vermicelli has 220 calories out of which 5% fat, 80% carbohydrates, 15% protein. So again we need to enrich the lunchbox with proteins and fruits. This time I have packed tomato raitha, nuts and orange along with Vermicelli Pulao.

Like Vegetable noodles, Pasta are also another favourite lunchbox dish for the kid. Pasta are rich in carbohydrates. Pasta provides you with energy, as well as essential nutrients in the form of fiber, vitamins and minerals. Pair your pasta with healthful ingredients to prepare nutrient-packed meals.Carbohydrate serve as a primary source of fuel for your body. Whole-wheat pasta also provides a considerable amount of dietary fiber, a particularly beneficial type of carbohydrate.  A 1-cup serving of whole-wheat pasta contains 6.3 grams of dietary fiber, providing 17 percent of the recommended daily intake for men and 24 percent for women, set by the Institute of Medicine. 

As pasta is rich in carbohydrates, we need to make sure to pack some protein rich vegetables or fruits along with water to make a healthy lunch.

Vegetable Noodles are always one the kids favourite dish. Vegetable noodles are low in saturated fat and high in protein. We are adding rich and healthy vegetables such as carrot, beans, cabbage, capsicum and peas which adds a lot of good value to the noodles.
