Chocolates (cocoa) and sweets (containing sugar) makes kids cranky, irritable and crave for more. This in turn make them eat less of healthy foods, affecting their overall health and development. Try avoiding chocolates and sweets for a while and see the difference in your child's behaviour for yourself. Here's a recipe I discovered as a substitute for chocolates that contains no sugar and cocoa! And my son loves it too. Ingredients: Palm jaggery (You can get it in health food stores) Milk powder (Without sugar) Butter (1/2 the quantity of palm jaggery) Method: Melt the palm jaggery and butter in a pan using slow heat. Once it melts and turns into liquid consistency, continue heating for a minute. Then slowly add milk powder to the above mixture (little by little) and stir. Once the desired consistency is reached (neither too hard or too flowing), allow it to cool. You can then make desired shapes out of the mixture and store in air tight container. To make the toffees a bit harder, heat the palm jaggery/butter mixture for a little longer time.
