When you're trying to inspire kids to eat healthy, my experience has been if whatever you are making for them is in the form of a chip, muffin, pancake or on-a-stick, it's usually a hit! We've been making these kale chips a lot recently and I can't tell you how fast they disappear! I truly can’t believe how tasty they are -- I know that’s a huge statement, but I think I like them even more then potato chips (and that’s saying a lot)! They're crispy, crunchy and on two recent occasions when I served them to kids -- several of whom normally turn their noses up at anything green -- they devoured the entire bowl full in minutes.
Another plus is that kale is among the most nutrient rich of all foods. Loaded with vitamin A, C and calcium, this is a vegetable that gets an A plus for nutrition and one that you definitely want your kids to be eating!
