I would have to say that hand’s down, the number one complaint I get from parents, is that they can't get their kids to eat their fruits and veggies. Nothing is more frustrating than when you make your children food they won't eat. Not only is it hard not to take it personally, but you can’t help but worry that your child is missing essential nutrients.
I don’t have the magic bullet answer, but I do have my ways. One thing I know most kids love making is smoothies. Smoothies are incredibly healthy, it's a fantastic opportunity to use foods that are in season and your kids can participate in the making of their own drink. Participation is key. My experience has been that when they feel like they are a part of the making or growing what they eat, they’ll be much more inclined to actually eat it. You go from making them passive — having a plate of food put down in front of them — to active — I can do it! I've been making Chocolate Banana Berry Smoothies (check for the recipe next week) for Kenya and he loves them. I add a scoop of Kidz Superfood in every batch and I know that he's getting 33 rainbow colored fruits and vegetables in every glass.
Kidz SuperFood contains premium whole food ingredients that your little ones body needs and none of the inexpensive fillers and nonessential ingredients they don’t.
Since I'm nursing a new baby and always on the go myself, I've been sneaking scoops and putting them in my own morning smoothies too. "Kids" food can be good for adults too!
