How To Get Your Kids to LOVE Fruits & Veggies

How To Get Your Kids to LOVE Fruits & Veggies

I’m proud to be participating in the Feed Your Potential campaign with Aramark. By sharing my healthy eating ideas and fitness tips I hope to help inspire everyone to make healthier choices a part of their everyday lives and this starts at home! Being a mother of six and constantly on-the-go, incorporating fruits and veggies into my boy’s diet has become an everyday norm.

 

I'm excited to share some tips on getting your kids to LOVE fruits & veggies!

Kids Rule: Offer options such as broccoli or edamame as a dinner side, before you start cooking. Once the kids come to a consensus, cook it up and prepare to watch it disappear! Ultimately, the control and (healthy) choice lies with them!

Dip It: Crudités are an amazing appetizer for kids. Carrot and celery sticks, snap peas and sliced bell peppers taste great solo or with a dip like light Hidden Valley Ranch or hummus. You can toss roasted or steamed veggies with lemon juice, sea salt and olive oil for some Mediterranean flair.

One Meal, Same Menu: We have raised our kids by having them eat what the adults eat and it has made the boys more adventurous eaters. I was also raised this way and think that's really what made my palate grow. This also means less prep, cooking and dishes for you. Everyone wins!

Have fun: Spice it up, cut it up and watch them eat up by putting a twist on the traditional fruit and veggies.

My Life is My Pride!
My Life is My Pride!

June is here and I am excited to celebrate my love, my life, everyone in the LGBTQ community and the milestones of change we celebrate during Pride Month. Over the years, I have seen the people in my life and across the globe become more inclusive and tolerant. No matter who you love, how you look or what you believe - we should all be able to live in a world full of love and without judgement or shame.
Why I LOVE Farmers Markets!
Why I LOVE Farmers Markets!

Spring is here all across the country and that means Farmers Markets will be popping up in everyone’s city and town. I am fortunate to live in California where farmers markets are accessible year-round but I never take for granted our access to fresh, a variety of in-season and local produce. Not only does it taste better when cooking and eating, it also has the fullest nutritional value. Did you also know you’re contributing to your local economy when you purchase from your local farmers markets? Farmers Markets return more than three times as much of their sales to the local economy compared to chain stores.
