A Sneaky Snack Story
An email from Leigh, in Bowie, Md.
of my children aren't crazy about vegetables, (imagine that). So
I know the ones that they turn their noses up at when I cook them. I get
out my Lazy Susan and put in baby carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and cucumbers.
In the middle I put ranch dressing, their favorite, and let them go at it.
I do this either for a snack or at dinner time. They dip and get healthy
at the same time.
children are served smaller portions and allowed to eat on the go, it goes better.
Try this too with fruit, and put vanilla yogurt in the middle to dip.
Strawberries, orange slices, grapes, apples, etc. and the fuss is taken out
of fussy eaters.
found in relation to other foods, that finger food like fish sticks or
chicken nuggets go over better than meat that has to be cut up and served.
luck, and sit back and watch."
Thanks, Leigh. This is a real sneaky idea
to get more veggies and fruits into the reluctant eaters!
Drag out those dusty Lazy Susans or
centers, people, clean them up and put them to good use.
