More often than not asking children to to eat their veggies results in a pout, or worse, a tantrum. It would have been great if commercially-produced foods were nutritious but reality dictates the opposite.
Instead of force feeding your little one’s boiled broccoli, or reminding him every meal time how unfortunate other kids are to not have any food at all why not make meal times more fun by educating your little about foods from around the world. You could create themes which should be fun for both you and your little one.
Here are some healthy and tasty ideas to get you started:
German Golden Pretzel – German kids just love pretzel dipped in mustard, it goes down well as a treat. For a better-tasting version, you may opt for the one dipped in honey and mustard.
Chinese Peking Duck with Wheat Noodles – in a country as vast as China, it is expected that their cuisine is also as vast. In Beijing, one of the most sought out foods is Peking duck served with a special sauce. Pair this with noodles made of wheat (which is widely grown in the region) and you’re in Chinese heaven!
Japanese Yakatori – this is a meal in Japan that is made of skewered beef or chicken chunks. Japanese kids love Yakatori served with sweet sauce such as that of teriyaki. For safety purposes, remove the meat from the skewer before serving.
