New research shows that allowing children to “play” with their healthy foods is a fantastic way to encourage them to enjoy and eat it!
And I have to say that at least for my family, that is totally true.
That photo above is a chicken nugget potato boat with Tyson chicken nuggets. I created it with Lizzie’s help. The blue “ocean” is sour cream I put blue food coloring in. The potato is twice baked, so the nuggets, peppers, cheese and veggies have something soft to sit in. The nuggets are supposed to be pirates and the peppers are their swords.
It was so much fun making this! And my kids just loved dipping their veggies in the “ocean” and eating the swords!
That is one way to encourage eating your veggies!
