I am sure most of you would agree that you would prefer a healthy brownie with beets/ spinach in it instead of a bowl of salad greens. I know I definitely would. Brownie to me means rich, decadent and it does not matter if it is made with healthy ingredients and is completely raw. It’s the look and feel of the food that we are so used to that matter most.
The same is true for kid’s foods. I’ll bet my son would rather eat that brownie without complaining than eat just beets & spinach as sides. So for this month’s Kid’s Delight event, I’m looking for dishes that are “deceptively” delicious. Make your kids’ favorite dish healthier by adding nutritious ingredients but still make it tasting good and looking delicious.
My inspiration for the theme is borrowed from Jessica Seinfeld’s Deceptively Deliciouscookbook. Jessica is the wife of famous comedian Jerry Seinfeld and she came up with bunch of ideas to hide healthy ingredients in foods that her kids loved.
So put on your thinking caps or flip through this book (or any other book for that matter) and come up with healthy alternates to dishes that your kids enjoy. Thanks to Valli for giving me the opportunity to host this month’s Kid’s Delight event.
