To me, so much of the art of getting kids to eat is incorporating as much fun as possible, so that they will be more open to eating foods that normally might be outside of their comfort zone. My kids love eating with their hands, so I try to devise lots of new spins on recipes for things they can hold easily in their little mitts. Burritos, burgers, muffins and even these Chicken in Lettuce Cups always go over well. Salad maybe a tough sell for some little ones, but these lettuce cups are kid friendly and a whole new way for them of looking at leafy greens. They're crunchy, and in combination with the stir-fried chicken with herbs and a slightly sweet sauce it's really something special. Plus, kids can only eat these with their hands. How much fun is that?
