Chef Pankaj spins her magic to create healthy and tasty meals for kids with Zee Zest's newest show 'Junior Menu'

Oct 18, 2021
Kids' nutrition remains one of the biggest worries for mothers. Some children have always been known to be finicky eaters. While some naturally are highly sensitive to taste, smell and texture, others develop these eating habits by modeling other members of the family. To inspire kids with better choices, and empower mums with recipes for scrumptious dishes that the picky eaters would devour, Zee Zest - India's leading lifestyle channel, presents Junior Menu with Chef Pankaj Bhadouria on 21st October, 2021.

This show seeks to address one of the most difficult parts of parenting, especially for working mothers, that is to provide their children with a wholesome diet despite hectic work schedules. A working mum herself, Pankaj has stepped up to the task, by introducing interesting and delicious meals, that are 'Tez bhi, taste bhi' and can be prepared within 30 minutes. Packed with nutrition and flavour the dishes are artfully presented, adding a wow element to simple home-cooked fare.

Celebrity chef, food expert and writer, Pankaj Bhadouria recently delighted viewers with Indian Food Classics also on Zee Zest. Radiating with confidence that would help UNLIMIT culinary creativity for many like her, Pankaj Bhadouria stated, "Under nutrition  and child obesity are pressing issues of our time. Junior Menu promises to offer easy and quick to make dishes for kids, that will help them expand their palate and inculcate better eating habits. It will also make mealtimes fun and less agonizing for mums"

Junior Menu is all set to surprise and tempt kids with unique ideas and a creative take on food, nudging them to explore and try new foods. Pankaj also highlights the importance of certain fruits and vegetables through the show. For the little ones who struggle with their greens, the show starts off with a delectable Broccoli Tikki. Be it savory Fish Cakes, sweet Shrikhand Parfait or a mouth-watering Soya Pav Bhaji, there is lots more to look forward to!
