MOMMY TIP- HIDING NUTRITION IN YOUR CHILD’S FOOD
This is something we have done for quite a while… actually more so when my second was starting to eat finger foods. He was, and is, my picky (and I mean p.i.c.k.y) eater. I’m more concerned about getting wholesome and nutrient-rich foods in his little body than filling him up at snack and mealtime.
There are many creative ways to hide healthy additions in your everyday foods and many sources that provide you with ideas:
- Annabel Karmel has a site and many books (SuperFoods is one that I like) full of recipe ideas
- Jessica Seinfeld also has a great book, Deceptively Delicious, which helps parents get creative
- Super Baby Food is a good reference book (that I look at weekly, to this day)
Another secret (that I use often) is adding pureed food or baby food to sauces, smoothies, yogurt, and baked goods… basically anything that it can be mixed into easily.
Here’s a perfect example…
Last night I made pasta with meat sauce.
But because my toddler will only eat peas and my preschooler will only eat carrots (when he’s in the mood),
I needed to come up with a way to get some more nutrition in their tummies.
So I added a pack of NurturMe Scrumptious Squash to their food.
Sometimes I scoop out a ladle full of sauce and then mix in the additional nutrients but yesterday I just sprinkled it directly on the food.
I mixed it all together, used my trusty scissor technique and dinner was ready!
I like NurturMe because I can carry the pouches around in my diaper bag,
store them easily in the pantry and it’s all healthy, yummy stuff to enhance my kids’ meals.
These would definitely come in handy for traveling, too.
