Kid-Approved Broccoli Fritters
After School Snacks that make Parents & their kiddos HaPpY!
Delicious AND Nutritious!
If I told you that kids actually like eating these things would you believe me? Guess you’re gonna have to make them for yourself to find out!
My kids are much more likely to try new things if I get them involved in the making/cooking process.
So don’t forget to use kitchen time as a bonding and learning tool for the children in your home.
I’m often asked, “How do you get your meat-eaters to eat the vegetables you serve?”
You can’t make anyone do anything.
You just keep serving them.
You win if vegetables are on their plates!
“How do you control what your kids and teens are eating throughout the school day, at sports practice, and when they are with their friends?”
We CAN and SHOULD control ONE meal per day for those BUSY kids/teens (and spouses, and ourselves for that matter), so whether it’s breakfast or dinner at home, just make sure you’re offering LOTS of veggies and fruits, high-quality proteins, healthy fats, and complex carbs at that ONE family meal each day.Remove the pointless guilt off of yourself, and realize YOU ARE doing a GREAT job if you’re offering these foods at least once each day, and regardless if they are actually eating the veggies or not…the vegetables MUST make an appearance on the kids’ plates each day no matter what.
Also, children learn most from what they see.
Make sure you’re consistently modeling healthy eating behaviors yourself because THEY ARE ALWAYS watching.
Maybe, just maybe we’ll raise adults who are receptive to actually eating like adults, and appreciative of all of our efforts! (this part I’m just guessing and crossing fingers for us all!)
