Irresistible Kid Friendly Salads
With these ideas for kid friendly, irresistible salads, I wanted to emphasize how important it is to include fruits and vegetables in yours. The new USDA 2010 dietary guidelines recommend half your meals should be fruits and vegetables, but sometimes dinner becomes a plate of cheesy pasta because you know the kids will eat it! So, with that in mind, these are the salads that I prep ahead and have in my fridge for anyone to eat. Whether it’s to add to a quick dinner, to eat as dinner itself, or a snack when you want to eat something healthy, these salads will become irresistible to your kids!
You can’t go wrong with broccoli salad! Almost every potluck we attend, we bring this recipe! – Traditional Broccoli Salad! This is also AMAZING, with a more citrus flavor to it! Loaded Broccoli Salad
A pepper salad marinating in some Italian dressing for a few days, is SO GOOD! This is the one we make most often.
CABBAGE APPLE SALAD or BROCCOLI APPLE SALAD
This one we used cabbage. The other one, we used broccoli slaw. Same recipe, just different greens. Both amazing!
So. as you are planning meals, don’t forget the fruits and vegetables. Just like the benefits from eating dinner with your family, doesn’t have to exactly be dinner, any meal you use to make half of it fruits and vegetables will benefit your kids.
