Vegetables are so nutritious... So, many wide variety of veggies are available in the stores. The only problem, is how to make these kids eat them. Mine just want to stay away from veggies, and only thing she likes to eat is Macaroni and Cheese. Well, I just can't give Macaroni and Cheese in all meals... So, started making veggies in different ways, which now she not only like it, she eats the whole meal by herself.. And no more, arguments on the dinner table.. Yayyyyy..
Do you know, Broccoli has a lots of Vitamin C and dietary fiber. It also has lots of nutrients, which has a anti cancer properties... I use it all the time in my recipes, but my little kid just do not want to eat these little trees.... They are out of her plate, as soon as she sees them...
So, experimented some options to make her eat Broccoli.. And this is the 1 idea, which is super-duper hit with her...
