Shake and Go
Looking for healthy breakfast options for your kids? Blending a smoothie is not only a time saver but also a healthy morning ritual. Not just smoothies, you can also make some nut butter, dips, and fruit purees in a blender within few minutes. Is your child fond of eating pancakes? Put the ingredients in the blender, and your batter is ready within 30 seconds. Hence, a blender is a must-have kitchen appliance for prepping healthy meals.
Slice and Chop Superfast
Are you thinking of preparing zucchini noodles for your little ones? A food processor is something that you can rely on in terms of speed and quantity. It can grate and slice your veggies, cheese, or fruits super consistently. Many of them even come with a dough blade so that you can make your favorite bread easily. When it comes to cleaning the food processor, you can rely on your dishwasher to get the job.
Cook, Roast, and Fry – All in One
Your pressure cooker can not only pressure cook but also air fry, roast, and slow cook now. Give your child a variety of sumptuous meals using the Deluxe pressure cooker, where the Tender Crisp technology makes your foods crispy in no time. Delight your kids by serving roasted chicken or jalapeno poppers without deep frying. Whether you want to slow cook rice or fry veggies and chicken, you can do it all and more by using a versatile pressure cooker.
Center of Attention
Turn your kid’s breakfast into a fun occasion by serving a Mickey icon imprinted bread slice, thanks to the classic Mickey Mouse Toaster. Your kids can not only play with Disney-themed toys, but also have super healthy Mickey mouse-shaped waffles. That’s not it; you can even serve cartoon-themed cupcakes using our special Minnie Mouse cupcake maker.
Measure it Out
Understanding the portion size for any meals you are having is the ultimate key to a healthy lifestyle. Whether you are preparing meals for your kids or your whole family, it is crucial to eat in the right portions. Moreover, many recipes require actual measurement, and for that, you need measuring cups, spoons, and bowls. For instance, to bake your kid’s favorite pumpkin pie, you need ingredients in accurate proportions using a measuring set.
Just the Right Temperature
Since the microwave oven cooks food at a shorter time, it is a boon to busy mommies and daddies. Also, cooking in a microwave is healthier than other options as the food’s nutrients stay intact. Most microwave ovens come with a grill and convection option so that you can prepare numerous dishes without any hassle. Craving for BBQ? Get the authentic charcoal-grilled chicken or veggies while choosing options having that feature enabled.
