Dress them up
Even the dullest of vegetables can be spiced up with a delicious dressing or a flavoursome marinade, well-seasoned for the seasoned among us or toned down for younger ones.
Try root vegetables with olive oil, black pepper and rosemary – drizzle the dressing over, then roast them in the oven. Kids will love a sticky sweet chilli sauce (not too spicy), which works brilliantly with roasted cauliflower.
Explore new vegetables, together
Make meals an adventure and discover exciting new flavours together. Work your way through a rainbow of colour, from bright red peppers and tomatoes to deep purple aubergines, and help your kids to explore the new textures and tastes (with their hands, if they need to!).
Help your children see that new foods and vibrant vegetables aren’t scary – it’s OK if they don’t like something, but you’ll never know unless you try. Get the whole family involved in plating up a picture – with a little help, and made with love, from Birds Eye.
