Overland Park parents: when you put a serving of broccoli or zucchini on your son’s or daughter’s plate, does your kid gobble it down, or stare at it like it’s a pile of alien goo? Well, if the former is true, then you can skip this article. However, I think many families in the 66206 zip code area could use some more veggies for better children’s nutrition in Overland Park.
Here are some ideas for Overland Park parents who want to sneak more veggies into kids’ diets:
Broccoli: cook the broccoli, blend it up, and put some of it into brownie batter. Sounds strange, I know, but even the pickiest eater won’t detect the added children’s vitamins and minerals.
Zucchini and yellow squash: shred it and add it to pasta sauces or casseroles. Theses veggies have a mild flavor, and won’t detract from the taste of the dish.
Spinach and other dark greens: if you have a high-end blender, you may be able to blend these super healthy greens raw. If not, you can boil them for a few minutes until tender, and then plunge them into ice water. Blend with some frozen fruit and yogurt or tofu for a nutrient-rich smoothie.
Cauliflower: dice it, cook it, and add it to white sauces or cheesy sauces over pasta.
There are many ways Overland Park parents and caregivers can add healthy veggies to foods kids already eat. It might take a little more preparation, but Kansas children are worth it!
