5 fun and creative ways to get kids to eat their veggies

As parents, we all know the difficulty of getting our children to eat their vegetables. But with a little creativity and fun, we can make mealtime more enjoyable for both kids and adults.

Here are five recipe ideas that will excite children to try new vegetables and make mealtime more fun. At ELIS ELIS, we want to help you discover together a new world where fruits and vegetables are good and fun… if you dare!

1. Vegetable Pizzas

Making personal pizzas with vegetables as toppings is a great way to involve kids in mealtime. Let them choose their favourite vegetables and let them add to the pizza. This can be a good way to introduce new vegetables to your children.

2. Vegetable Skewers

Another fun way to serve vegetables is to skewer them. You can use any kind of vegetables you like, but some popular options include cherry tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms, and zucchini. Serve the skewers with a tasty sauce and watch your children dive in.

3. Vegetable Tacos

Tacos are always a hit with kids, so why not make them even healthier by incorporating vegetables into the filling? You can use any vegetable you want, but some fantastic options include grated carrots, peppers, and zucchini. Top the tacos with a little avocado or sour cream and your children will be asking for another one.

4. Smoothie Bowls

Smoothie bowls are a fun and easy way to sneak in vegetables. You can combine vegetables like spinach, kale, or avocado with fruits like berries, bananas, or peaches, adding a little yogurt or nut milk and some seeds, granola, or nuts for a fun and healthy breakfast, snack or dessert.

5. Hidden Vegetable Pasta Sauce

A good way to make sure your children are getting their vegetables is to sneak them into the pasta sauce. You can puree vegetables like carrots, zucchini, or even spinach and add them to a basic marinara sauce for pasta. Your children will love the taste and you will love knowing they are getting their vegetables.

These five recipe ideas are just the beginning of the endless ways to make vegetables more fun and appealing to children. By being creative and involving your children in mealtime, you can make sure they are getting the nutrients they need to grow and thrive. 

Keep in mind that every child is different, so it is always good to continue experimenting with different vegetables, cooking methods and ways to combine them with other foods to find what is most appealing to your child. And most importantly, continue encouraging them and make mealtime a pleasant and positive experience.
