I am sure in a homeopathic physicians practice one is frequently asked by parents these questions :
1. How do I ensure my child is eating a well balanced diet.
2. How do I ensure that the diet is improving my child's immunity and resistance against disease/ illness .
3. How to form a positive and long term sustainable diet pattern and one that is interesting and do able .
I always begin my sharing what I have done to bring about the change in my children. Let me start with the question number 1 and share how I plan the main meals.
We call it Fun Khana Times! Some simple rules I follow for myself :
1. I plan in advance. I write down the menu of the week and I think colorful ! Reds , greens, yellows and think different food groups to be included daily.
So a daily portion of proteins ( dals, soups/sprouts), vitamins and minerals with fiber(veggies!! And salads), carbs( rotis, rice ) , fats ( a freshly made dollop of ghee) and pro biotics ( curd , yogurt smoothie, buttermilk) to help digestion and absorption of nutrients !
2. Once the menu is planned I involve the children who at times sit and want to make the menu and the meal fancy. So I encourage them in doing some craft and make a menu card and cutting the veggies or plating the salad. It gives them a sense of how much thought , care and love goes into the food. On weekends they love setting the table and some candles and music too in the background! ( at the risk of being called elaborate , I am sharing this , since it has worked wonders
with some patients with fussy and reluctant little patients of mine). My children ideally like sitting cross legged And eating with their fingers! Any novelty is fun. Like a picnic in the balcony. All these for weekends specials at Fun Khana Times.
3. They serve themselves and portions they decide. But everything that has been cooked has to be tasted/ sampled. That way I have slowly ensured that all food groups has been eaten and the children have been taught to enjoy and eat variety.
3.. I absolutely have No gadgets policy at mealtimes and bedtimes. I follow that rule myself. So no tv or iPads. It gives us time to plan the day ahead with lot of laughter at breakfast time and to discuss the day gone by with satisfaction.
This is my simple and wholesome plan for my kids ( and little angels , my little patients )
Important thought here is a simple , wholesome , homely meal and that with fresh ingredients offers a better balanced diet !!
Would love to get some more ideas. We have such lovely child counsellors and dieticians in this panel ! To a happier and healthier fun food times!

Have been asked so many times about the balanced diet I advice in my practice of homoeopathy. A diet which infuses energy and improves the immunity and helps one increase resistance against disease. A diet to prevents constipation and keeps IBS in control. A healthy body helps one recover really fast from illness/ surgery. I have been a follower of a particular simple diet plan. Writing down what one eats and measuring the portions is my first advice.
Sharing this for my homeopathy students / fans / followers of a good diet plan for healthy living and wellness.
1.. I start the day with a glass of lemon juice with honey instead of sugar. (At times I would advise a methi seeds infused water kept overnight to patients with acid reflux) . A good cleanse and detox helps kickstart the mornings.
2. A good workout of Pilates/ cardio followed by an ABC juice.
3. Breakfast : very Indian. Nothing packaged. Upma/poha/ idlis / dosa
4. A mid morning snack of fibre rich fruits at 11 am. Papaya /guava / a seasonal fruit.
5. Lunch with brown rice and dal and sabji with a sprout salad and a cup of curd( pro biotic and non sweetened )
6. A mid evening snack of fistful of nuts ( a fig/ date , almonds , walnuts , pistachios ) with a warm green tea ( chamomile to gear up for the evening) at 4 pm
7. A late evening bowl of salad with olives and flax seeds at 7 pm
8. Dinner by 8. Again a round of veggies (greens) and chappati with a glass of buttermilk.
9. A glass of milk with no sugar at bed time.
Important tip: I always eat fruits bought from the local growers.
Keep the walnuts and powdered flax seeds in the fridge to prevent them from becoming rancid.
Try setting curd at home and prepare buttermilk using this organic dahi.
Drink enough water through the day and chew into an apple when hungry !! 😊😊
