These green beans are crispy, crunchy, and completely addictive. Kids can get their hands into all aspects of this recipe: use a kid-safe knife to trim the beans, measure and mix the ingredients for the flavorful breadcrumb coating, and take part in the "assembly line" breading of each green bean!
These mini veggie burgers include raw beets which can be much milder in flavor than cooked ones. Kids will love to mash the beans, help measure ingredients, and choose how to top their own veggie patties. Serve on a bun or on its own with a dip on the side.
Beets come in a variety of colors and, fortunately, can temporarily stain your skin yellow, red, pink, and purple. Yes, it's a good thing! Kids need to explore foods in a fun way before they consider tasting them. Temporary tattoos are sure to be a hit with kids of all ages.
When you hear the word chips, do you automatically assume they will be a “less healthy” option or a “sometimes food”??? If so, you are not alone. I have great news that this is not always true! You can actually increase your child’s interest in many kinds of vegetables by making them into “chips”. We love doing this with sweet potatoes, purple potatoes, carrots, and most of all BEETS!!!! Also children love to dip so pairing Beet Chips with a nice Beet and Berry Dip is a definite winner for everyone!
Chocolate and cauliflower? Yes, please! Frozen cauliflower makes smoothies thick and creamy but you don’t taste it at all. Make sure to have kids add the cauliflower to the blender along with the other ingredients so they know the veggie is in there.
