Now Kids Can Have Their Veggies & Eat Them Too!!!
It's a common problem among parents, getting your kids to eat their veggies. You are bound to run into this struggle at one time or another. Many kids will turn up their nose at the site of anything green or healthy, so how do you get them to eat? Here are some fun and easy ways to get your kids to eat their vegetables.
1. Plant a Garden: If your children can see the bright red cherry tomatoes, leafy green lettuce, and baby peas growing, they might be more interested in the veggies. Plus, they can eat right out of the garden!
The Dish On...
Dipping the Veggies
My kids really enjoy dipping their vegetables. What better dip than a veggie based dip such as hummus. Hummus is a delicious, healthy spread made of garbanzo beans. You can buy hummus in your local grocery store, but it's more fun to make it at home and get your kids involved.
1 can of garbanzo beans; drained
2 cloves of garlic; minced
1 - 2 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Place all of the ingredients in a blender or food processor until mixture is creamy and smooth. Serve with fresh vegetables and sliced pita bread.
