A round-up of healthy and delicious vegan recipes for kids that'll make them ask for seconds, every single time!
Ohhhhhh kiddies these days.
Some kids like sports. Some like to paint. Some like to hoard their parents' clothes and have fashion shows. Others like to build intricate structures out of Legos and we wonder how they’re smarter than us at age two. Some like monster trucks and green beans and some are super, super picky. Then there are the picky ones that love monster trucks and green beans.
Thankfully, at the end of every one of crazy, finger-painted day, most kids crave the same thing: super yummy food.
When discussing the eating habits of our shorter and cuter counterparts, we often use the terms “kid food,” or “kid-friendly.”
So what is kid food and what makes a food kid-friendly?!
Lettuce face the facts. Kids are picky. And so are many adults! I define kid-friendly food simple, back to the basics, no questions asked, good food without any crazy spice profiles. And yes, at times, that may sound something like chicken fingers, pizza, ice cream, and mac n’ cheese.
But what if I told that you could give your kids all of these foods in plant-powered form?
Today I have for you a set of simply humbelievable vegan recipes for kids that they'll be hollering about!
News flash--- kid food doesn't have to be bright orange or purple or loaded with sugar to be tasty. The importance of feeding children with wholesome ingredients cannot be overstated, my frands.
Healthy living that starts at a young age, and the food that they consume will set them up for top-notch growing. Do your part!
Now there's no need to turn your youngins into people who say no to crusty pizza and ice cream. That’s no life to live. Aren't we all just kids at heart anyway?! We all need those fun foods to make regular appearances at home, too. Balance is key! And a little healthy eating surely won't hurt the little sprouts.
