Here’s today’s tip: get your children to try new, healthy recipes for kids by adding tons of cheese! I know that sound counterintuitive. Then how can it be healthy?

Go ahead and smother that vegetable in cheese, bacon, and/or butter. Yes, we said it. Go ahead and introduce your kids to new foods with not-so-healthy ingredients, in the beginning. Once your kids start eating Brussels Sprouts more regularly, then you can start modifying these recipes using healthier ingredients. The goal is to help your kids develop a positive relationship with each new food you introduce to them.

If your child loves steamed veggies, by all means, keep offering steamed veggies! This is a tip to try if your child is hesitant to try a new vegetable.

Use Cheese To Get Your Kids to Try New Foods. Get Inspired!

Cheese helps bring familiar flavors to these foods, which may help get your kids to be more accepting of new food. Once they are used to these new foods, you can start removing the cheese little by little.

Over time, your kids may start to be used to new food and you’ll be able to serve them without all that cheese and you can create your own healthy recipes for kids.
