When it comes to Snack boxes, packing is always difficult as we want a quick fix and a healthy one every day. Always fruits make a good choice for morning snacks and some healthy crunchy snacks would be great for midmorning office snacks or kids’ evening hunger.
Peanut Sesame Seeds Laddu with Jaggery is nutritious, healthy, and easy to prepare. You need three main ingredients for making this laddu. I love snacking on these guilt-free laddus. As these laddus contain peanuts, jaggery, and sesame seeds, they are rich in protein and iron. These guilt-free laddus can be had as a snack can be given to children as after-school snacks or can be packed in their snack boxes.
I often make and stock these kinds of healthy ladoos at home to snack in between meals. What I loved is the addition of fennel seeds. Dried fennel seeds are a storehouse of various nutrients, with low calories and high in different micro and macronutrients.
