You cannot expect children to eat regular food all the time. Even adults eventually get bored of eating curries and bland food to control their calorie intake. Moreover, a healthy meal is incomplete without a dessert. According to the Indian tradition, after the meal, the guests are served, sweets and that’s for a good reason. This slows down the digestion process a little, and helps your body to absorb the nutrients and vitamins. However, the sweet must be of a very small portion – one or two bites.
