We obsess about how important healthy eating is for us, but there are a few other people who rely on you to keep them eating well, too… your children! Making sure kids eat what’s good for them can be difficult since foods packed with nutrition don’t always please their tastebuds. But teaching kids healthy habits early on will make them want to eat healthy food later, which is a win for both of you. Here are 12 fabulous recipes to keep your kids happy and eating what is good, not just what tastes good.
