Best Way To Eat Green Vegetables
BEST WAY To EAT GREEN VEGETABLES
By Jan Ashby
Here’s a fresh idea – offer a good variety of vegetables to your family. If you expose your teenagers and children to a LOT of different types of healthy vegetables, you might be surprised to discover there are some they don’t hate ..but actually like!
There are so many ways to present them – in green smoothies, as a pizza topping, in the marinara sauce of spaghetti, or with ranch dressing. Also you might roast the healthy veggies on the grill. Your teenagers will probably even enjoy FIRING up the grill.
And if you take time to cut them up small, you can add them to something and the small kids won’t even notice (in most cases). IDEA: Add them in on a regular basis, and eventually they’ll decide what they can put up with.
The key is to keep offering different veggies and not give up, even when it seems that they will never try a new vegetable. You might SLIP them in the layers of pasta – like into the family lasagna dish.
Slip them in where you can. Whether it is covered in pasta sauce in lasagna or spaghetti — or covered under cheese in a pizza, you’ll find a method where it’s not quite as noticeable to children. By thinking creatively about what you are cooking and how you can add in shredded, finely chopped, or other cut veggies, you will discover you can add in vitamins and minerals, as well as opening up their taste buds (albeit unknowingly) to different foods and HEALTHY vegetables.
Toddler Won’t Eat Vegetables: What to Do?
Make vegetables good fun. This is the most important part of eating healthier. Whether you cut the veggies in fun shapes and offer a ranch or other fun dip to let them enjoy dipping the vegetables in – or you arrange them creatively on a plate or other dish – you will find that the more fun you make the vegetables in both serving and eating, the more likely they’ll be to eat them.
A happy face, or design done in vegetables on pizza can be appealing as well. Just think out of the box to find a way to get your kids attracted to trying new things – vegetables.
