FINGER FOOD RECIPE – SUITABLE FOR 1-3 YEAR OLDS
Perfect for parents intending to treat their little one’s for forthcoming Eid and Diwali Celebrations!
Gulab Jamun, a popular extremely moreish Indian dessert loved by all who have had the pleasure of devouring it. Deep fried and soaked in sugar syrup, these delights are definitely not child-friendly.
So I continued with my mission to make traditional Indian food suitable for toddlers and young children by baking rather than frying, and drenching them in a naturally sweet honey saffron syrup. Yummy!
Please be aware, honey is still high in natural sugars so this really should be treated as a ‘special occasion’ indulgence for kids.

Used for centuries for its medicinal properties, honey, nature’s sweetener is antioxidant, helping to protect the body from free radical cell damage. Free radicals are unstable, highly reactive molecules causing serious diseases such as heart disease, cancer, strokes, Alzheimer’s disease and arthritis later in life. Honey is too anti-bacterial, anti-fungal – great for nappy rash protection and along with cardamom and cinnamon, is great for boosting immunity against cold and flu viruses.
