It’s so important for kids to learn healthy eating habits, but sometimes pickiness makes that hard to do. We’ve put together some ideas of how to incorporate more of the good stuff into kids’ meals that are cheesy, crunchy, colorful, or snuck (shhh…) into their favorites foods.

Other ways to encourage healthy habits is to expose kids to interactive activities around food, like gardening and cooking to teach where their meals comes from. Enthusiasm around fresh ingredients and properly prepared vegetables makes all the difference in the world!
