Kid-Friendly Tips For Parents

1- Your kids may still be learning to like foods all-mixed-up. In that case, use small containers or silicone cups to separate the food ingredients and let your kids do the mix themselves.

2- Keeping the sauce on the side is always a great idea to let the option to taste first and dip if preferred. Kids love dressings, and it is powerful to get kids who “don’t like vegetables” get started.

3- Involve your kids in the preparation by letting them choose the shape of the pasta, make the vinaigrette, or simply pick 2-3 ingredients they want in their salad.

This can convince any reluctant eater to give it a try!
