How to add greens and more greens to fried rice

Stuff a couple of peas in fried rice as the daily greens!  Here is how I pack broccoli and kale into my boys’ dinner.
Basically the principle being – when you’re introducing a new food, you might as well dress it up well.  Not so they don’t notice it, but make it too good to knock back.
IMG_9532[1]First steps are making sure the boys accept the greens easily (they did).  Then my future aim is for cauliflower rice instead of any rice (cauliflower being more nutrient dense than rice).  Usually I go against tradition and use brown rice but didn’t have enough so I used basmati rice, next best option.
Of course you can add other veges or meat and herbs of which we had none today.

Does anyone else have some healthy and delicious ways with fried rice?

Hello friend! I am a paediatric speech pathologist and health coach. My vision is to create a world where parents can understand the real link between diet and their child's health and behaviour, and know how to create true health for their family. My two young, wonderful and sensitive sons both have food intolerances and have also taught me about my own, that I have never known about until now! Topics I have looked into for my own family's health and also from my role as a speech pathologist with children with picky eating are food intolerances, fussy eaters, creating healthy eaters and eating to prevent and ‘cure’ childhood issues such as ADHD, autism, eczema/skin issues, trouble sleeping, low immunity, frequent snot/ear infections and bedwetting, to name a few. I write many posts coming from being an exhausted mum trying to keep up with fussy boys who can only eat certain foods and also as a professional who has worked with other children with similar issues. I live on the Sunshine Coast in Australia with my husband and two boys and was previously an exchange student in Brazil! I hope to inspire you to help your child achieve their potential through health and well-being. Thanks for stopping by :) Heidi
