We all know that kids love candy and junk food but as soon as they see something green on their plates, their little mouths seem to lock up. This is why many parents struggle to feed their kids something that is actually healthy and nutritious for them.
Even though our little ones would like to eat burgers and fries every day, we can’t let them have their way because bad eating habits like that can lead to obesity early in their lives. Therefore it is very important to find a way to incorporate some healthy items into their daily intake. Before you start thinking that’s impossible, we’re here to prove that it is easier than you might think.
There are a few creative ways to trick our kids into eating healthier. One of the easiest is to blend veggies like tomatoes, spinach, broccoli, and other greens into a healthy and yet delicious pasta sauce. To make the dish even healthier you can replace the regular pasta for vegetable-based versions as well.
Another way to incorporate pureed veggies is to mix them in ground meat and make burgers or patties out of it. As we said before, kids love burgers so, just trick them by making a healthier alternative. They won’t see the veggies but still taste the meat!
Last but not least are fruit and veggie pops. Puree fruits and veggies that go well together and freeze them to make delicious and healthy refreshments for your kids on hot summer days.
