National Salad Month
Salads are nutrition-packed meals, but young children not might be too fond of these leafy meals. Here’s some tips for parents that can help make salads part of family mealtimes!
If your children are unsure about eating salad, try making a salad together during dinnertime. When kids are involved in the cooking process, they are more likely to try new foods because they had a hand in creating it.
When making salads for kids, simple is best. Use a few ingredients and make sure the ingredients are fruits or veggies your children have tried in the past and already like. Always ensure fruit and veggies are cut into bite-sized pieces.
