Feeding children tests every parents patience, especially with vegetables. Some adults have the same “ick” for vegetables but thankfully the culinary people have made it easier to eat them because of the variety of delicious dishes.
Parents however, need a lot more work and ideas to make sure their children get the proper nutrients they need from vegetables. Here are a few dishes that may help you Moms and Dads.
1. Baked Zucchini Fries
Fries are a simple snack for kids to eat, and they normally enjoy them. Because these zucchini fries are primarily vegetables, you won’t mind if your children eat a lot of the. There’s no need for a boiling pot of oil in this recipe; it’s just not necessary. These fries are incredibly crunchy immediately out of the oven – so crisp that no one would guess they weren’t fried in any oil at all.
2. Spinach Quiche
Quiche is a high-protein food that contains all of the key amino acids our bodies require. It also contains fat and carbohydrates. You can let your kids join in with the cooking by rolling out the dough, cracking eggs, etc.
3. Vegetable Calzone
These hearty Vegetable Calzones are packed with all of your favorite pizza toppings. These Italian sandwiches are simple to make for dinners, and they’ll quickly become a favorite in the family.
4. Carrot Pancakes
These pancakes are a great way to eat vegetables for breakfast. They’re like carrot cake without the frosting. They’re nutrient-dense and have a light, fluffy texture. Adding carrots to pancakes is a clever trick because they are both visually and flavor-wise very mild.
