Yes we have Tips to get kids to Skip the mac n cheese and pass the veggies please because my sister just shared this incredible recipe for String Beans which both parents and kids will enjoy especially since it is just ONE point on the Weight watchers Freestyle plan! But I digress!
We recently wrapped up a family trip where we spent the bulk of our waking hours traversing area-attractions jamming in as many as activities as humanely possible. Unfortunately, our tightly packed schedule didn’t leave much time for dicing up tomatoes, steaming broccoli and peeling the skin off apples“the only three veggies and fruits my picky son will permit me to prepare for him, without throwing a tantrum, gagging or flatly refusing to eat.
Being in vacation-mode we let our normally healthy foods fall by the way side and allowed our kids to gorge on fast food and fruit punch. I know…big mistake! My once baby carrot-munching son, since returning is now averse to anything remotely healthy. And my daughter, well she’s demanding a slab of fried bread for breakfast. Seriously, I kid you not!
Tips to get kids to Skip the mac n cheese and pass the veggies please!
How can you get your ANTI-veggie kids to eat some of the green- any way of masking it in a sandwich or a pasta salad. I’m not big on hiding or sneaking vegetables into my kids’ diets. I want them to know that vegetables are important and necessary as part of a healthy, daily diet. We let our kids choose which veggie they’d like for dinner. kids are much more inclined to eat their veggies if they had a say in picking it out and planning the dinner menu. Right now they are totally digging this Cauliflower Fried Rice!
So wuth that in mind I git my kids in the kitchen with me! Here is our String Bean Side Dish recipe which is just one point per serving on The Weight Watchers Freestyle Plan!
