Now the title of this post may sound like an obvious statement to most. Scientists and nutritionists have been saying this for years. I just wanted to share the most recent report urging parents to once again, keep pushing the veggies, or at least disguising the veggies. The researchers over at Penn State recommend adding pureed vegetables to your kids’ food. Remember to keep offering your little ones fruit and vegetables at every meal, but hiding veggies in other foods seems to be a good idea too. To read Penn State’s full study, click here.

Pottery Barn Kids offers up 5 healthy snack ideas that are easy to make, nutritious, and most of…kid approved! Now my little one’s diet still only consists of just milk. Though I’ve seen friends struggle with their toddlers and children when it comes to finding health snacks that the kids will love to eat. Growing up, my mom used to just give us an apple! These 5 ideas definitely sound a little more enticing and delicious compared to an apple:
- “Edamommy” Dip
- Fresh Fruit with Orange Yogurt Dunk
- Make Your Own Microwave Cinnamon Kettle Corn
- “Out of the Box” Granola Bars
- Pita Pesto Pizza
Which do you think your children would like? Any you just might make for yourself?
