How-to: get your kids to eat vegetables
Is dinner time at your house a nightmare? Getting your kids to make healthy food choices can often prove more difficult than getting your kids to brush their teeth. Thankfully though, we’ve come up with the sneakiest technique ever for getting your children to start eating healthy, without even realising it!
Is it underhanded? Yes. Does it work? ABSOLTULTELY! In fact, this sneaky little technique won’t just get your kids eating their veggies – it will get them begging to eat more! Think we’re kidding? Try it and see…
Puree all your vegetables for the week separately and put into individual, labelled freezer bags.
Now the fun begins! Pureed veggies make your kids favourite treats twice as moist, triple as delicious and best of all they’re totally undetectable! Even the most hardened of vegetable haters won’t realise they’re eating them! Try these sneaky, tasty combinations:
Mix broccoli puree with whisked eggs and dunk chicken bites into the mixture before coating in breadcrumbs and frying. You’ll have to stifle your giggles when you watch how greedily your kids eat up their most hated vegetable!
Add pureed carrot, zucchini and Brussel sprouts to their favourite spaghetti bolognese sauce.
Pureed sweet potato and spinach added to chocolate brownie mixture will make the moistest and moreish brownies your kids have ever tasted. Even you won’t be able to believe how good this one tastes!
Add pureed broccoli and zucchini to macaroni and cheese and teach your kids how to eat healthy – the fun way!
Experiment! Once you start mixing pureed veggies into your kid’s favourite meals you’ll be surprised by how incredibly flavour enhancing they can be! Use your imagination and play around with different combinations – the pureed freezer bags of veggies will keep in your freezer for ages, so they‘re super handy too!
