This year, you won’t have to bribe your kids to eat their vegetables. With so many colorful and exciting foods out there, they’ll be begging you for more! Can you blame them? With pictures of tri-color cauliflower, and dancing rainbow carrots, they’ll think dinner was created by Disney. Throw in easy-to-follow recipes and colorful pictures and watch out, they may even be cooking you dinner!
Magic Spaghetti Squash
What kid doesn’t love a good magic trick?! Especially one they can perform themselves!
And, for just under a dollar a pound, it’s really a win-win situation. If you haven’t already guessed from the title of this paragraph, I’m talking about spaghetti squash, all natural and so healthy! Kids love pasta (and this looks just like it), and combined with the fun of shredding it themselves in under a minute, they won’t miss the 200 calories they are saving by avoiding the real thing.
Ratatoullie, the Dish, Not the Mouse.
Kids are familiar with the cartoon chef named Ratatoullie, but, little do they know, it’s also a healthy and delicious food! Maybe they can use a French accent while they are eating it too!
Pop Goes the Quinoa
Children will watch in amazement as the water disappears and the quinoa pops out of its seed during the cooking process. A great source of protein and fiber, and it’s also light and fluffy!
Please Eat the Flowers!
Who knew you could eat flowers? With recipes like stuffed zucchini blossoms and flowering chives, you can encourage something out of the ordinary and provide a unique experience at the dinner table. This will stimulate your child’s curiosity and make them excited and interested about food they’re eating.
With cauliflower available in colors like purple and yellow, your kids will think dinner was brought to them by Dr. Seuss.
Dancing Rainbow Carrots
Add a touch of whimsy to your table with these iresistable rainbow baby carrots. If that goes over well, you can introduce them to rainbow chard too!
