Kids Salad Lunches plus a $500 Restaurant Giveaway
I love it when our kids make their own lunches. I am one of the lucky ones where by Noah, Oscar and Mietta like to create their salads, head to our 2nd drawer in the fridge and choose whatever combo they like for their lunch! Many people ask me how I get our kids to eat salads. Simple. I eat salads. Monkey see, monkey do, right? When I started my healthy journey a few years ago, I remember the kids picking my food and not eating theirs. So slowly they started to eat the foods I eat and today, I am one fortunate Mama of 4 kids that enjoy choosing healthy food options.
My tips to getting kids to eat salads (fully raw fruit and vegetables)
- let them wash and prep the food with you
- store and cut the vegetable in bite sizes
- make fun faces or food art
- educate and tell them how amazing fruit and vegetables are for their growing bodies
- have plenty of variety so each child can choose whatever vegetables they like
- dressings are key, having more options gives you more to experiment with
Noah loves his Italian herbs and the roasted capsicum was a hit!
They love taking their little salad dressing tubs and pouring it fresh on their salads at school.
Noah's salad consisted of;
Oscar loves anything balsamic, in fact give him some olive oil and he will dip bread in this combo until the cows come home! So he has gone for the Praise Zero Balsamic & herbs dressing.
Here's what Oscar grabbed from the fridge;
Mietta loves anything French, so she instantly chose her favourite classic Praise Zero French with roasted garlic dressing.
Mietta's salad choices were;
