Peanut butter, banana chocolate chips French toast

This is one decadently yummy recipe. I recommend it for kids most times because its highly packed with healthy deliciousness. Peanut butter is high in protein and the right kind of fat, the bananas are healthy too, the egg in this recipe gives the right amount of protein for the meal. I have put a twist to it by adding some chocolate chips.

I tell mums that french toast is a way to get your picky eater to eat eggs just in case he/she isn't normally interested in eggs.gradually they get used to the taste and may accept eggs in other forms.

My top three natural blood tonic for kids!!!

You must have heard on one of your visits to the doctor,the acronym 'PCV'.
 PCV is simply the 'packed cell volume'- the percentage or volume of red blood cells (erythrocytes) in the blood!

Sometimes the percentage is relatively low in children due to different reasons, it could be due to eating a diet deficient in iron, folic acid and vitamin b12.
To avoid anaemia,its important to top up your PCV. How?you may ask, Thankfully,there are natural foods that help to ensure the PCV is at the appropriate level. Because my area of interest is child nutrition and cooking, this blog will not only identify PCV boosters but also give ideas about how to creatively incorporate them into kids meals,especially picky eaters.

Preserving Green leafy Vegetables by freezing

Today, I am writing about preserving green leafy vegetables. Sometimes, people are unsure if  freezing of leaves reduce the freshness when prepared. After experimenting, I suggest that leaves can be frozen till you're ready to cook. I used Ewedu and Spinach for the latest experiment.
I cant resist giving you a quick background on Ewedu Leaf before I discuss its preservation.

Ewedu leaf ,for those who dont kow it ,is the local name for the Genus Corchorus .
Different common names are used in different contexts, with the name "jute" applying to the fibre produced from the plant, 'Mallow-Leaves" for the leaves used as a vegetable. On a lighter note, a friend's 3year old daughter asked for the English name of Ewedu  and her mum put it up on facebook,asking for answers.

 Corchorus has a mucilagin…
