Recipe of mixed fruit jam for kids


It is vacation time and the kids are at home. Kids have peculiar taste and sometimes they are really picky eaters. Sometimes it becomes really difficult for mother’s to feed even a morsel of food to the kids. They want food that they feel is tasty and like to eat. Lot of times the kids want to eat a lot of sweet items which we feel is not good for them. We have already discussed what kind of foods to be given to infants. But older kids also like variety. Kids demand for and like to eat outside tomato ketch ups, jams and other things. Then why not make these items for them at home. The kids will be very happy and happily eat it with chapati, bread and other things. Today I am discussing with you the recipe of mixed fruit jam.

Recipe of mixed fruit jam

In the mixed fruit jam, you can take any fruits you like. Here I have taken apples, pear and raw mangoes. In this way you can give fruits to the kids and this jam is home made so there is no tension for the added preservatives, artificial flavors and food colour.



  • 5 to 6 apples
  • 2 to 3 pears
  • 2 raw mangoes
  • 1 bowl sugar
  • 1 small lemon


  1. Wash all the fruits. Peel the skin of and wash them properly. Then cut them into coarse pieces. Here I am using pressure cooker to prepare the jam.
