Can it be challenging to get kids to eat their greens? At times, absolutely. But it can really make a difference when you use your greens in creative ways. Get your kids involved in the process by letting them measure, dump and turn on the food processor. And don't forget to double the recipe so you always have extra pesto on hand--just store the extra in freezer cubes and all you have to do is defrost one, toss it with pasta, rice, fish, or chicken for an effort-free meal in minutes!
When my children complain about something I’m serving, I still request they eat a small amount, but I listen to why they don’t like it and make adjustments. I used to serve broccoli with a cheese sauce on top because I know my children love cheese.
