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.
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?
The QUICKEST snack you could prepare with ‘superfood’ benefits of turmeric, which will help keep your child’s liver clean from all the detoxifying of toxins they may be ingesting. Not to mention a great fine motor task for little fingers to pick up and eat!
1. Rinse tin of No Salt Added Chickpeas.
2. Pour onto baking tray.
3. Sprinkle turmeric powder over the top. Shake tray to coat.
4. Place in oven at 200degrees Celsius for ~40mins depending how crunchy you like them. For little ones you might just do 30mins to keep them semi soft.
Enjoy! 🙂 Heidi
