Looking for ways to get your cutie pies to eat more veggies every day? Make healthy eating fun with Salad on a Stick! Sometimes you need creativity with the little ones and give them an incentive to eat their daily allotment of plants, so get creative in the kitchen! Maybe if I served my salad on a stick, I might have eaten more veggies as a kid. I probably would have just eaten more Doritos but we all can dream.
This is such a simple yet fun recipe that really doesn’t need a lot of explanation. All you have to do is place all of your salad ingredients onto a stick (I know, what a novel concept with a title of Salad on a Stick) but what ingredients you do use is up to you!Print
- iceberg lettuce
- bell peppers
- cherry tomatoes
- homemade nondairy ranch dressing, for dipping or drizzling
- Sliced up your veggies (use fun shapes if you want!) and iceberg lettuce.
- Place through the skewers.
- Drizzle with the dressing or set in a small cup for dipping. Easy!
Add or subtract any ingredient that you want. This is your recipe. It’s based off of what you and your kids like so go crazy. This might also be the recipe time to incorporate a new veggie into your kid’s diet. Cut it into a fun shape and now you got more motivation to eat it!
