Pre-cook some veggies you have in mind like broccoli and carrots, let it cool a little before putting in a food processor. Put a lot of cheese and add the mixture to whatever dish they love. Your children will not even know it is there.
Vegetables do not have to be the enemy. While we keep trying how to trick kids to eat vegetables, children seem to have an aversion to vegetables. What’s funny is they will push them around their plate, refuse to eat them, ignore the food and cry. Whether you are trying out vegetable soup recipes or good vegetable grill recipes, children know when you have sneaked healthy vegetables into their meal, and they will probably kick up a fuss.
Try allowing the kids to grill the food themselves, might as well their favorite veggies. Try the following suggestions:
Zucchini or Summer Squash
The vegetables are attractive with a delicate spring flavor and aroma of the squash to fill around when grilled over intense heat. Let them season it and ask them how could these veggies taste when done.
All my kids love grilling whole eggplants then peel them right after. They make it a fun who gets the bigger vegetable on the plate. I allow them to make their own dip which they enjoy along with whatever is served for the main dish.
I’m sure all kids vote for this veggie. Potatoes are amazingly comfortable. Slice the potatoes and let the kids help to partially cook them on a Dutch oven. Do the grilling altogether. With a sprinkle of salt, the potatoes will have almost the texture of French fries by the time they’re done.
Fun, isn’t it? But if you think all these are impossible, then don’t grill! 🙂
