For most people, desserts are the most awaited part of a meal. Nothing can be more rewarding than having a slice of your favorite chocolate cake or a dish of banana pudding after dinner. But with the increasing health related problems, parents have become extremely careful regarding their children's health, and hence avoid serving them dishes that are very sugary or filled with unnecessary calories. But a healthy meal or lifestyle doesn't mean you should deprive your kid of delicious desserts and sweets.
