Sneaking Fruit and Veggies into Kids!
I don’t know about you, but I have a child who loves fruit and would eat it for every meal if allowed and another who has been….let’s say…challenging with trying new things.
But we have had a breakthrough. I have started juicing in the morning and the kids take turns in making it for each other. We call it a glass of “health and happiness.” It’s very basic just oranges, but #1 loves it.
Another idea I read recently was getting a “Lazy Suzanne” and letting the kids pick of it what salad or veggies they like. Did you know, It takes three attempts of a new food for a person to like it.
I know friends who grate carrot and zucchini into spaghetti, another who put’s honey and butter on carrots and even cover’s broccoli with chocolate sauce (yes, it’s true). That young boy now eats broccoli without any sauce and loves it!
Have you got a great way of sneaking fruit and veggies into the kids? If so, I would love to hear your tips and tricks.
