Want Your Toddlers to Eat Green Vegetables

Turning Green into a Toddler’s Delight: Tips for Vegetable Victory!

Parents, we understand the daily struggle of getting your toddlers to embrace the world of green vegetables. But fear not! With a bit of creativity and patience, you can transform the dinner table into a colorful and nutritious playground. Here’s how:

1.Make it Fun and Colorful:-

Create a vibrant plate by combining different colored vegetables. Arrange them into fun shapes or create a colorful veggie rainbow. The more visually appealing, the more likely your toddler will be intrigued to try them.

2. Get Them Involved in Cooking:-

Let your little ones be your kitchen helpers. When they participate in preparing a meal, they are more likely to feel a sense of ownership and curiosity about the ingredients. Give them simple tasks like washing vegetables or tearing lettuce leaves.

3. Dip it! Dip it Good:-

Kids love to dip! Serve green vegetables with a side of tasty dip – whether it’s hummus, yogurt-based dressing, or guacamole. The dipping process can make eating veggies a playful and enjoyable experience.

4. Turn Veggies into Shapes:-

Use cookie cutters to transform vegetables into fun shapes. Broccoli trees, carrot stars, and cucumber circles can turn a regular salad into an exciting and visually appealing adventure.

5. Blend Them into Smoothies:-

Sneak in those greens by blending them into delicious smoothies. Combine spinach or kale with fruits like bananas, berries, and a splash of yogurt. The natural sweetness of the fruits can mask the taste of the veggies.

6. Create Food Adventures:-

Turn mealtime into a culinary adventure. Pretend the veggies are magical trees or superhero fuel. Narrate stories about the exciting journey the veggies have taken to land on their plates.

7. Incorporate Veggies into Familiar Dishes:-

Sneak veggies into their favorite dishes. Add finely chopped spinach to spaghetti sauce or mix grated zucchini into muffin batter. Slowly integrating veggies into familiar foods can make the transition smoother.

8. Be a Veggie Role Model:-

Kids are more likely to try new foods if they see their parents enjoying them. Show your enthusiasm for green vegetables, and they may be inspired to follow suit. Lead by example!

Remember, it’s all about creating positive associations with veggies. Be patient, stay creative, and watch your toddlers embrace the goodness of green with excitement!

5 Quick Food Recipes For Kids

In today’s age of double income families and the growing number of nuclear families, I often find that in my practice as a child dietician, mothers rely on pre-packaged, processed foods or ready to eat foods as snacks for their children. This not only compromises the nutritional health of their children, but also increases their risk of obesity.

The reliance on ready to eat foods is not so much due to lack of interest or want, but more due to paucity of time. As a child dietician I routinely share quick and easy food recipes for kids with such mothers. The recipes are tried and tested, quick and easy, and most importantly, universally loved by children of all ages. I had to share these recipes with my readers.
