A Cleaner Version of Chicken Nuggets

I’m not a super mom. But yes, I try to feed Nayel healthy stuff. I don’t always get to do- there are days when we order Mcdonalds meal. But whenever possible, I make sure I’m giving him healthy stuff.

His latest nuggets love is turning into an addiction- which forced me to make a cleaner version of nuggest at home for him. So I googled a couple of recipes, tried and tested and made my own version which he loves! Alhamdullilah!

Hence sharing with you all here today – enjoy!

Tip: try to make food colorful and fun for kids- sneak in some veggies and healthy bits that will give them some extra boost in a flavorsome way 🙂
