Vanessa and I both love our veggies, but we will be the first to admit that our kids don't!
We know how hard it can be to get little ones to eat the greens, so we scoured the internet for someone who was doing it right! Dr. Laura Lefkowitz, is an M.D. out of Florida and specializes in nutrition. She's taught us so much! Did you know that the baby palate is developed while in the womb? Or that you should never mix veggies and fruit in the same meal? Well, take a few minutes to sit back and enjoy this video, because we know it will help you raise a veggie lover!
TIPS FROM DR. LAURA
Top 3 rules of Palatetraining are:
1) Always start non-sweet Vegetables, then Sweet Vegetable, and finally fruit.
2) Never Mix Fruits and Vegetables. You can mix Vegetables with grains and Fruit with grains or avocado, but never mask the taste of vegetables with fruit.
3) Serve every puree/food independently on a flat sectioned plate (like pain on a painter’s palette) and aim for 2-3 different colored food at each meal. i.e. green peas, orange sweet potato, and yellow squash. or Green zucchini, purple potato, and orange butternut squash.
