Picky kids are smart — they know when you’re trying to feed them vegetables and other healthy foods, and they’re clever enough to pick around them. Outsmart your kids with these recipes. They’re a great way to sneak fruits, vegetables and whole grains into your child’s diet!
NurturMe freeze-dries organic fruits and vegetables at their freshest, to lock in nutrients and flavor. That makes their baby food healthy, delicious, and portable . It’s perfect for travel, like airplane check-ins and roadside meals. But NurturMe is versatile. It can also be added to recipes to pump up nutritional content. Every meal becomes an opportunity to get your child an extra vegetable serving or two — no coaxing required.
Stumped for ideas? NurturMe offers recipes on their website to help. You can add always-ripe banana to smoothies, secret carrots to spaghetti and even sweet potatoes to pancake batter!
