Great things come in little packages and meal times are no exception. Let’s face it – we have a hard time convincing our kids eat healthy food. They come to the table and ask for fried chicken and that’s it. We don’t have to punish them with leafy greens; we can provide an alternative to ‘gross looking food’.
Here are some healthy meals your kids will absolutely love:
Mini Bacon and Potato Frittatas
Trade a bowl of milk and cereals for protein-packed and fiber-rich mini frittata made with morning favorites like eggs, bacon and potatoes. This healthy meal will keep your kids focused and alert the whole day. These frittatas can be cooked ahead of time and microwave-heated to serve immediately for morning rush hour. Add a glass of milk and sliced fruit on the side for a more balanced meal.
Sliders with Shallot-Dijon Relish
Kids adore burgers make your little ones some baby burgers ideal for pint-sized diners. Go for lean ground beef and if they prefer for the usual toppings, top theirs with low-fat cheese, tomatoes and relish. Sliders make it more ideal for counting calories – these baby burgers amount to less than 175 calories each.
Tofu is naturally charged with a lot of good stuff like calcium, fiber, healthy fat, iron, folic acid and protein. Start training your kids to eat clean and healthy even at a young age.
Peanut Butter – Banana Swirls
Spread peanut butter and bits of banana on a flat tortilla, roll it up and slice them to little pieces of wedges. Insert a toothpick through each piece and serve. These swirls provide heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fat, potassium and fiber.
There’s always a special place for cake in every kid’s heart. Kids don’t normally like carrots but if it’s anything sweet they’ll grab it. They’re absolutely delicious plus abundant in nutrients with ingredients like carrots, walnuts, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and canola oil.
