fruits-and-veggies

 

Happy Thanksgiving Sports Moms and Dads!  We had the first snow of the season last night here in New Hampshire and now I feel like I can wrap my head around the holidays!

 

Holiday meals are wonderful, family and friends all gathered around a table loaded with delicious food and drink.  Lots of laughing and friendly chatter until the dreaded “kid meltdown” over refusing to eat what has been prepared.

 

You know the drill:  “That looks yucky” to Grandmas green bean casserole or “That smells stinky” to Aunt Betty’s Brussels sprouts.  Immediately, the tension and food wars ensue.  Part of this behavior is to be expected due to the change of routine etc.… and in general, I would say that a holiday meal is not the time to get sucked into a food war but I have found one little trick to add to our feeding children itinerary that really works.

 

THE VEGGIE PLATTER

 

Take a step back and think about what we do to veggies on Thanksgiving.  We add cream of mushroom soup to green beans, put a glaze on carrots and prepare smelly veggies like Brussels sprouts.  Now put yourself in your child’s shoes.

 

Familiar foods are now unfamiliar and horror upon horrors – food is mixed up with other things and on top of it all, the meal is at a different time of the day.   Making sure the kids are not starving when they sit down to dinner can be a game changer and having a big platter of veggies and dip set out while everyone is waiting for dinner can be a healthy solution.

 

Many children prefer raw veggies over cooked and it always amazes me how quickly a platter of colorful peppers, broccoli, cauliflower and carrots disappear when placed on the counter while dinner is being prepared.  Toss in some delicious sugar snap peas, celery, radishes and mushrooms and you may even encourage your child to try something new!  Children love to dip so be sure to include several dips alongside your platter such as hummus, ranch dressing or a homemade Greek yogurt dip.

 

BIG MOM WIN!

 

  • Your get your kids to have a healthy snack so they are not starving when they sit down and ultimately get them to eat their veggies!

 

  • By having the platter in the kitchen, the children will be around and interacting with everyone rather than off in their rooms or in front of the television

 

  • The veggie platter may become so popular; it may replace the weeknight pre-dinner crazies and increase your child’s overall intake of vegetables.
