Foodista: Taste the Rainbow

Every day, moms across the country try to get kids to eat their fruits and veggies. Many fail and are met with a range of responses, from the audible “yuck” to food flying across the room. Some are more successful, as they choose to hide veggies within more kid-friendly foods. Yet others have won kids over with dishes that highlight the produce’s hues and flavors. Check out these tasty and nutritious recipes that encourage tots to taste the rainbow.

    Wow I almost ate the screen! Love the rainbow of colors, everything looks super tasty. The problem with most of us is that we dont take the time to actually make food. I am trying real hard not to buy pre made food. I sure plan on making a few of these! Thanks for sharing.
