'Bland and boring' is a comment often made by kids, when they are asked to eat vegetables. Parent talks on 'nutrition required to grow up fast' hardly get today's intelligent children interested in veggies. So, the trick is to present them in an appetising and clever manner so that they can't say no to vegetarian dishes. 

Here's the recipe for such a dish – veg balls. It's yummy to start with and snack-like to look at  and above all, packed with nutrients and vitamins. You can either pack these to school as a mid-meal snack or serve them hot as an evening bite when the kids return from school. Check out the recipe.
