The start of a new year always gets me refreshed to set new goals and priorities for myself and my family. Always at the top of my list are finding new ways to sneak more veggies into my kids’ diets. My children tend to be picky eaters and so I have to get creative at times to make sure they eat a wide variety of foods. Vegetable smoothies are our go-to ways to add some greens into their diets, but I’m looking for more ways to add nutritious foods to their main meals, that are still palatable and fun for kids to eat. I’ve rounded up 12 bite-sized foods filled with veggies to get us (and YOUR family) started.
