Although kids don’t find salads appealing most of the time, salads are one of the best ways by which they can eat vegetables. In this guide, you will discover the top 3 salad ideas that your kids will love.
Here is a simple 3-step checklist to tricking your kids into eating salads.
When there are lots of ingredients, the kids get overwhelmed and become less interested.
Hence, I suggest you use fewer ingredients. As a matter of fact, use fewer ingredients if your kids are still very young.
Since most kids are familiar with cheese, iceberg lettuce and croutons, why not make use of these as the ingredients for your salad.
When you get your kids involved in the preparation of the salad, you will get them excited about eating it.
Chopping of cucumber and washing the leaves are 2 examples of ways they can be involved in the preparation
That being said, here are the top 3 salad ideas that your kids will love.
1. Silly sausage
You can dress it in basil and olive to make it more nutritious and attractive.
You can add extra beans if you have a child who is a vegetarian.
Since the basil has been proven to have powerful anti-bacterial properties and is rich in vitamin a, ensure that you add as much of it as possible.
2. Tropical fruit salad with ginger syrup
This is a really good way to create a snack or dessert for your kids because it is a mixture of sweetness and nutritious value.
All you have to do is mix papaya, orange, kiwi, strawberries, and pineapple together in the right proportions
3. Goats cheese salad
When you combine Lucy’s light raspberry dressing with the creaminess of the cheese, it will be so attractive that your kids cannot but desire to at least have a taste.
You can leave out the nuts if your kids don’t like them. But you can start introducing it to them gradually and once they like it, start adding them.
