Okay, let’s face it. Spinach isn’t exactly a food that most kids are going to ask for. Most are going to push it around their plates and whine about having to eat it. Wouldn’t it be nice to have some spinach recipes that your kids actually wanted to eat?
If your kids love Mexican food, they are going to love this casserole. It’s got the great Mexican flavors your kids know and love, but has the secret ingredient of spinach. What you’re going to love, besides the fact that your kids will be eating vegetables, is that you can make this casserole ahead of time. This allows you to have something healthy in the fridge on those days when you’re really busy.
Wouldn’t it be nice to sneak some vegetables into your kids snacks? These spinach banana muffins are a great choice. The banana flavor will help mask the spinach flavor. Ground oats are used in place of flour, giving these muffins a fiber boost. They make great snacks and a good on-the-go breakfast.
Do your kids love wraps or quesadillas? Why not make some homemade tortillas using spinach? These are so much healthier than tortillas you purchase in the grocery store. Best of all, you’re giving your kids something that you know is healthy and natural.
If your kids love dip, this is an awesome snack. Yes, it’s a bit high in fat and calories, but if your family is new to the gluten free diet, it can be a great way to show your family that they can eat yummy foods that don’t contain gluten. Try serving this yummy dip during your next movie night at home.
Why not make a delicious smoothie for your kids that has a double punch of veggies. This kale spinach berry smoothie is a beautiful shade of dark pink, which will definitely appeal to your kids. The spinach and kale are also hidden behind the flavors of banana, blueberries, and raspberries. You’ll never have any problems getting your kids to drink these smoothies. Just don’t let them see you make it.
Spinach may not be a favorite for your children, but these recipes may just change their mind. Sure, they may not sit down and eat a large serving of cooked spinach, but you can get this nutritious vegetable into their diet without having to argue with them.
