Mung/ Moong dal (split green gram) laddu/sweets for kids/toddlers

In my opinion this is my most favorite sweets for growing children, when my sons were kid, I gave them one laddu to eat as quick small breakfast every morning along with a glass of milk before I was busy with my daily routine. Kids just loved it. This protein packed sweets made with ghee provides good fat and calcium, sugar give carbohydrates, which is necessary for kids to provide energy to play whole day.

I really miss that wonderful time: today I prepare this laddu for my grand-daughter, who is very far away from me in India. My princess we miss you, I may not play every day with you, but I think of you and love you every moment. God bless you my angel…
