If there is one thing I know for sure, its that after a long day of learning and playing my kiddo is starving. I mean he can seriously pack in some food in and he starts asking me for something to eat as we are walking to the car from his classroom. He will continue to ask me every 30 seconds until I provide a snack and after he finishes said snack he will once again ask me for something to eat until he has eatten the equivient to a meal. Seriously preschoolers can pack it in!
I want to be intentional in what foods I am offering him at this time, he’s so hungry that I could probably get him to eat about anything. Even if it’s something he doesn’t normally like, vegetables are the obvious first thing that comes to mind. I should take full advantage of this state of hunger. Now this hesitation hasn’t always been his feelings about vegetables. When he was a toddler he LOVED celery and a variety of veggies. Then one day he completely lost interest and vegetables became a struggle. We recognize it’s an important part of his every day diet so we strive to make sure he is getting the recommend number of servings. Thanks to Green Giant this is getting a little easier.
Green Giant has introduced two new flavors to their veggie tots which are an awesome alternative to traditional potatoe tots or French fries. Each tot is filled with either corn or sweet potatoes. All great flavors, personally the sweet potato is my favorite. They cook up in just 14-17 minutes in the oven and are delicious and ready to enjoy immediately.
Since little ones love “dipping” their food these are the perfect bite size snacks for dipping. While they are delicious on their own, pairing them up with ketchup or ranch makes them even better!! Obviously this is a huge motivator for kids to eat them.
You can find them in the freezer aisle at your local grocer and by clicking HERE you can grab a coupon to save $1 off of your purchase.
I’d love to know how you make sure that your kids are getting all the servings of vegetables they need in a day. So leave a comment telling me all your tricks for getting those health options into their bellies.
