As with the cauliflower twice baked potatoes, this vegetable side dish combines a vegetable with something kids already like - mashed potatoes. Feel free to add more or less butter and salt to adjust to your taste.
Simple is often best when it comes to vegetables for kids. This carrot salad is basically just shredded carrots and apples tossed in a creamy yogurt-based dressing. It's fresh and flavorful and combines two foods most kids already like.
Some vegetables are naturally bitter, and kids' taste buds just can't accept bitter foods. One way to cope is by adding sugar to make the vegetables sweeter for kids. This strawberry spinach salad masks the sometimes bitter flavor of spinach with sweet strawberries, glazed pecans and a sweet and creamy dressing. The result is a tasty salad both kids and adults enjoy.
Butter gets wonderfully nutty and sweet when it browns, and that's what makes this vegetable recipe so appealing to kids. If your kids don't like walnuts, use pecans or peanuts instead.
Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamins, fiber and minerals. They're one of the healthiest vegetables around. These sweet potato fries are crispy on the outside and soft inside. Kids will love this vegetable!
A lot of parents go by the "cover it with cheese" rule in preparing vegetables for kids. I can't think of a better idea, and this cauliflower gratin is a perfect example of taking a relatively bland vegetable and turning it into a creamy, cheesy food sensation.
