how to make tasty treats to make your child's immune system strong

Iron, calcium, proteins and carbohydrates are a must in your child’s diet. A strong immune system will help your child’s natural defense system to fight any disease. But knowing how picky children are, it is a herculean task to prepare snacks that will interest them. Most children love granola bars. But you can make them at home without the inevitable preservatives that supermarket granolas have.

Here’s a recipe of granola bar made out of walnuts, cashew nuts, almonds & peanuts

100 grams of peanuts, walnuts, cashew nuts, almonds, 350 grams sugar and honey, 1 tbsp saunf (fennel seeds), 2 tbsp butter, 125 ml water, 1 tsp grated lemon rind and 1 tsp soda-bicarbonate.

 Method: Mix & warm all nuts & fennel seeds.  Mix sugar, honey and water in a bowl and heat it over medium flame and boil it. Cook it till the sugar turns syrupy & thick. Add in the nuts & fennel seeds. Stir well, remove from flame and add grated lemon rind and baking soda to it. Pour the mixture into a greased baking tin. Cool off, cut into cubes and serve. Store it in an air tight container by separately the layers with butter paper.


  1. I really liked your recipe here but can you tell me how much 125 ml is as in per cup size?

  2. Hi Krystine,

    Thanks for your appreciation. 125 ml is equal to 1/2 cup as per US measurement. Hope it helps :-)
