Rushing for school, college or office, we have spent almost every morning of our entire life running, and only one food that could be easily jammed in our morning routine is - jam. Bread and jam is the easiest meal we can fix in a jiffy, and even eat-on-the-go. If you have jam at home, you have the benefit of snoozing your alarm for few more minutes and get that blissful sleep, which for some odd reason, comes best when we have to wake up!
Mixed fruit jam is the best of all the jams available, as it contains a medley of sweet flavours from a variety of fruits, and when paired with toasted or plain bread, rounds off our meal perfectly. Not just for breakfast, jam and bread combo can satiate our evening hunger too. For kids, a large dollop of jam splayed on a paratha is one of the best meals. It's another interesting easy to way to feed them fruits, which they may despise having raw.
