Popcorn or Makhana- the better snack for Kids

Giving healthy snacks to kids every time when they have cravings in between meals is the toughest job for every mother. By handing over a pack of chips, sugary cookies and cold drinks we miss the chance to feed them something healthy and nutritious. In this article we will discuss which is healthier of the two snacks: Popcorn or Makhana (lotus seeds) and will see who wins the race in being more nutritious.

Popcorn: What makes a movie perfect? The answer is popcorn. Whether it is in the theatre or at home, movies are incomplete without popcorn. They are considered as one of the healthy snacks for kids. It has ample dietary fiber and low calorie count. Popcorn is also a good source of polyphenols, an antioxidant that helps in better blood circulation and digestive health. And is considered to be a food that can aid in weight loss too. Although always remember that vending-machine popcorn is not just high in calories but also in sodium. Air-popped would be a good way to prepare popcorn.

Makhana (Lotus seeds): Makhana or lotus seeds are grown in Asian countries and considered as a power food. It is an excellent source of many important nutrients. Moreover, it is loaded with protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, iron, phosphorus and carbohydrates. It also contains antioxidants like gallic acid, chlorogenic acid and epicatechin, which reduces inflammation, helps to neutralize harmful free radicals and prevent oxidative stress. To sum up, makahan and popcorn both are healthy snacks options.

Makhana (Lotus Seeds) vs. Popcorn

Amongst many minerals and vitamins that contribute towards brain development and function, a few are Manganese, Vitamin B6 and B9. They are abundantly present in Makhana.

  • Just a cup of Makhana is enough to meet 50% of Manganese requirements for the day.
  • It is those rare snacks which are loaded with a good balance of B vitamins, 5 times that of popcorn.
  • Makhana has 1/4th of the calories of popcorn. This gap is huge in the limited amount of calories a child can be fed. Every calorie a child consumes should be loaded with nutrients and not be an empty calorie.
  • Not just Brain, Makhana also supports strong bone development of a growing child.

Hence we can say that if we have to choose between Popcorn or Makhana as a healthier snacks for kids, Makhana wins over many folds in nutrition. However, popcorn is not an unhealthy snack option, but Makhana is definitely more nutritious and healthier. So next time when you are watching a movie or otherwise, offer your kids roasted makhana. They will surely love this crunchy healthy snack.

Health benefits of Makhana:

Strengthen bones:

Calcium is crucial for bone development and strengthening, especially for kids in growing years to have strong bones for lifetime. In addition to this, Makhana being high in calcium helps kids in bone development and adults in bone strengthening.(Foods that help build strong bones?)

Gluten free:

This superfood is gluten free, which means if you are gluten intolerant or somebody who avoids gluten foods, can enjoy it without worrying about the reactions. (Foods that can help with allergies?)

Weight loss:

Loaded with sufficient amounts of protein, this healthy snack for kids helps to stay full for longer and prevents overeating. Also low in calories, makhana is an ideal food for weight loss. Moreover, the fiber in it moves slowly through your digestive tract to keep you feeling full for a long time. (Foods that can help with weight control?)

Helps in cognitive function:

Makhana have high thiamine content, which helps with sustaining the cognitive function of the nerves and contributes to the process of neurotransmission. (Brain developments foods for kids?)

Better digestion:

The high fiber contents of makhana aids in digestion and keeps the bowel movement regular. The antioxidant properties of makhana make them even better for digestion. It also helps in prevention of excessive and frequent urination. (How to fix gut health?)

Improve heart health:

Makhana is the great source of magnesium, which significantly improves the quality of blood and oxygen in the body and reduces the risk of heart diseases. Makhana is high in potassium and low in sodium, which keeps the blood pressure level in check. (How to keep the liver safe from fatty liver disease?)

Good for skin

Makhana contains several amino acids, which help promote skin elasticity and skin health. Also the antioxidant properties in it help fight free radicals, thus they act as an anti-ageing agent. Since Makhana is high in a natural flavonoid called kaempferol, it helps to keep away the signs of ageing such as hair loss, graying of hairs and formation of wrinkles. So it is not only good for kids but for adults too. (Remedies and foods to avoid rashes in skin?)

To conclude we can say that Makhana and popcorn both are healthy but Makhana has more nutritional benefits than popcorn.

Kids notice format of food and not the food

We understand that making Healthy food is as big a challenge as feeding food to kids! Making food that looks great can help in feeding to kids, as most of the kids notice format of the food rather than the food itself.

In a perfect scenario, a mother would want her child to pick up the veggies, fruits and nuts on a daily basis. But it seems like most mothers are far away from the ideal situation. Forget kids, even adults notice format of food and fuss over eating certain fruits and vegetables. Nevertheless, what we can’t forget is that every fruit and vegetable we avoid, we also risk the deficiency of its micro and macro-nutrients, which are extremely essential for active growth and life long functioning of the body.

Kids who don’t eat well in early years end up having problems with digestion, weaker bones, delayed growth, weak vision, dull skin and hair. In the long run, these early concerns mature and take the form of osteoporosis, diabetes, depression, grey hair, baldness, early aging, obesity etc. Hence it’s utmost important to teach kids to consume a variety of fruits, vegetables, nuts and other natural foods. The next big achievement of course will be when kids not only love to eat them but also demand and notice format of food.

It is observed that it’s not the food that makes a child fussy but they notice format of food. If a child is given food in his/her favorite format in their early years, then they learn to eventually pick up and enjoy those vegetables, fruits and nuts without much fuss.

Format 1- Fries:

Kids notice format and If a child loves fries, then baking sweet potato or carrot fries with favorite seasoning is a no brainer.

  • Recipe:
  • Scrub and wash the sweet potato or red skinned potato. Leave skin on (skin is loaded with antioxidants and fibre).
  • Cut sweet potato or red skinned potato in wedges form.
  • Rub and toss them in 1 tsp oil (or more)
  • Sprinkle some salt. Good to use Epsom salt (why?)
  • Spread them out on baking sheet on tray.
  • Place on middle rack.
  • Preheat oven for 5 min at 200 Celsius and Bake for 25-30 min.
  • Sprinkle any seasoning on top and serve.
  • KIDS LOVE IT! So make extra 🙂
Format 2- Wraps/Cheela:

Another example would be a wrap made of ragi flour & chickpea flour mixed with spinach purée or beetroot purée. Replace tomato ketchup with nut spread or chutney (as ketchup sugar counters calcium absorption in the body). Stuff the wrap with cheese, tofu and sesame seeds and fold it in a convenient easy to hold format. kids will surly love and notice format of this wrap.

Kids Notice format of food
  • 1cup Ragi flour (optional)
  • One cup chickpea flour or mung bean paste (soak mung bean for 4 hours, blend with water to make thick batter)
  • 1 beetroot grated/ puréed (uncooked)
  • 200mg Tofu (mashed)
  • 3 tbsp Sesame Seeds or Iyurved’s 5 Ayurvedic herbs and 7 nuts savoury spread (order here).
  • Water (as required)
  • Salt (as per taste)
  • 2 tbsp grated ginger
  • Two tsp Ajwain/ Carom seeds
  • Coriander leaves (chopped)
  • MIX ALL

Cook:

  • Spread 1 serving spoon batter on non-stick pan. Apply some oil.
  • Flip other side. Serve.

Kids happily enjoy the ‘hidden’ nutrition of nuts, herbs and veggies!

Format 3- Paratha/Flatbread:

Sometimes kids don’t want to eat curry or sabzi with paratha.Stuffed parathas are an easy and healthy option to hide veggies & feed kids in such cases. 

Kids notice format for food
  • Make Puree of cauliflower, sprouted mung bean/ moong dal
  • Add to wheat flour or sorghum/ jowar. Add salt and ajwain/ carom seeds.
  • Put nuts and seeds powder or Iyurved’s 5 Ayurvedic herbs and 7 nuts savoury spread (order here).
  • Serve it as a paratha roll.

Kids happily enjoy the ‘hidden’ nutrition of nuts, herbs and veggies!

Format 4- Cakes:

Children love to eat cakes but parents are worried about feeding them nutritious food. Try to make this healthy no sugar, no egg, no white flour cake using nutritious & healthy dates, flaxseed powder & whole wheat.

kids notice format of food

MIX/ BLEND

  • 2 tbsp heap-full wheat flour
  • two tbsp heap-full cocoa (dark)
  • ⅓ tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil/ ghee/ any oil
  • 4 dates (paste)
  • ½ tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 tbsp flaxseed powder (take flaxseed and powder it) mixed with 6 tbsp water
  • Iyurved’s 5 Ayurvedic herbs and 7 nuts choco spread (order here).
  • Jaggery/honey/coconut sugar (to your taste)
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup milk (try any milk/ nut milk)

Preheat the oven for 5 min at 200C and bake for 30 minutes in the middle rack.

Kids happily enjoy the ‘hidden’ nutrition of nuts and herbs!

Format 5- Cupcakes:

Cupcakes are another popular food commonly loved by children. Chia Berry cupcakes are a healthier alternative for regular white flour cupcakes and allows mothers to feed their kids berries & chia seeds which kids would not eat otherwise.
