8 Ways to Get your Toddler to Eat More Veggies!

This is brilliant! Not only are they healthy, but they’re loads of fun to make with your children. Here is a simple idea for some delicious Green Monster Pops; 1 cup of chopped spinach, half a cup of chopped kale leaves, 1 whole peeled and chopped pineapple, and 1 – 2 cups of purified water. Chuck all of that into a blender, puree, add water, repeat. Pour your mixture into pop moulds or small cups and leave them in the freezer for an hour!

這可是個超棒的主意!自製雪條不僅健康,而且也在製作的過程中讓孩子體會到樂趣。例如可以加1杯切好的菠菜,半杯橄欖菜,1個去皮切片的鳳梨,還有1至2杯水,將這些原料放入攪拌機混合。最後將攪拌好的放入模具,雪一個鐘,就有新鮮好味的雪條啦!
