As a mum of two kids, I too have the dilemma of what to cook for the evening snack when they are back from school. Most of the kids are fussy eaters and to make them eat something healthy is quite a huge task for every mother & to satisfy them daily is a difficult task at hand. Its usually a big NO to healthy snacks. They normally prefer junk food to home made regular snacks.
When I was a kid my mum used to this snack for me, which I loved so I robbed this recipe from her cookbook to share with all the beautiful mums out there. My kids simply love it and can have any time. I am sure that you all will also enjoy it along with your kids so try this Sweet Coconut sandwich, very quick and easy to make.
Coconut has many health benefits but for kids it can also helpful to avoid obesity and is a fast energy booster. This recipe is made with grated coconut, sugar, butter & bread slices toasted in a sandwich maker.
