We had so much fun at the Birds Eye event in NYC a few weeks back. We have been experimenting with veggies to make dinnertime funÂ (Birds Eye was kind enough to send me some veggies to try!) and I wanted to share with you 4 new dinnertime rules to help get your family excited about eating their veggies!
Rule 1 Role Reversal – Kids get to pick the menu and the veggies. Have them pick a theme and dress up and decorate.
Rule 2 Play with your Birds Eye Veggies – Use your veggies to make smiley faces or create something fun on your plate. Yes, it is ok to play with your veggies!
Rule 3 Celebrate Every Bite – Did you know it can take up to 12 times for kids to try a new type of food before they begin to like it? So keep em coming!
Rule 4 Be a Veggie Explorer – There are so many different ways to serve veggies. We love the smoothie recipe – yes, veggies can go in your smoothie so experiment!
Anytime you involve your kids in the cooking process and have them lead the way is one way I have found it easy to get them to experiment with their veggies. Pizza making is one of their favorite meal times and making sure the veggies are chopped up small helps a bit when adding them as a topping.
Disclosure: Birds Eye sent me a gift package with recipes and veggies to experiment with! All opinions are my own.
