Vegetables are pretty much the quintessential healthy food.
Unfortunately, they get a pretty bad rap as far as taste, especially from kids.
But with a little creativity, vegetables can be yummy and enjoyable for everyone! Our family is taking four super simple baby steps toward healthier eating. And veggie side dishes are just one of the ways to do it!
Here’s a great list of vegetable side dishes that kids will love! They feature all kinds of different veggies from asparagus to zucchini!
