Vegan recipes for kids! These easy, healthy kid-friendly vegan lunches and meals will have children asking for seconds every time!
When discussing the eating habits of our shorter and cuter counterparts, we often use the terms “kid food,” or “kid-friendly.” Most kids, picky or not, crave the same thing: super yummy food. And kid friendly vegan meals can be just that!
What is kid food?
Kid food is really just be adult food in smaller portions. We've been made to believe kids need bland flavors and repetitive textures, but the opposite is true. The more variety they get from babyhood, the better.
But research suggests that exposing babies and toddlers to lots of colors, flavors, and textures helps reduce pickiness later on. It may take ten times of introducing a food to get your kiddo excited about Brussels sprouts, but keep at it!
Kiddos can really eat anything adults can eat, from spicy food, curry, Brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes and beyond. As long as the texture and size is age appropriate, you're in the clear to go wild.
Vegan recipes for toddlers or kids don't have to be loaded with sugar or salt to be tasty! Healthy living that starts at a young age, and the food that they consume will set them up for top-notch growing. Now there's no need to turn your youngins into people who say no to vegan brownies. Balance is key!
