There’s No Need to Fear

Fruit-AppleWho says you can’t get older kids to try new things? Sure, by middle school, most kids are quite clear in what they will eat and what they won’t; fruits and vegetables are often not at the top of the list! So, how do you get them to be bold and try new things? Make it fun, if course!


Here are some of our favorite ideas:


Serve up a smoothie. Fresh fruits, like berries or bananas, are not the only items you can add to smoothies. Try adding in some leafy greens, like spinach or kale — trust me, your kids will never know!


Switch up your traditional salads. Salads don’t necessarily need to be served in a bowl. Try serving “lettuce sandwiches” — lettuce slices wrapped around your family’s favorite cold-cuts. Another idea? Add some fresh fruits for a pop of color and flavor!


The more, the merrier. Remember the television series, Fear Factor? If your kids love competition, they’ll love taste-testing new fruits and veggies in a fun and competitive way! Consider hosting a taste-testing party, Fear Factor-style, by encouraging your kids (and their friends) to experiment with new fruits and veggies normally outside of their comfort zones. Will they like the new food? Will it be sweet or sour? Crunchy or soft? Your kids will have a blast daring — and motivating — each other that they’ll likely forget they were picky eaters after all!
