    Easy dinner recipes for kids that are fun too  


    Kids refusing to eat veggies is a really common issue that has many parents tearing their hair out and trying to find creative ways to add these goodies into meals. Aside from bribing them with rewards, one of the easiest ways to make vegetables for toddlers and children is to arrange them in a way that makes them look fun, colorful and tempting to eat. Have a look at the following top tips for getting creative when it comes to preparing vegetables for kids:


    • Create a yummy spaceship with crackers for the aircraft, cucumber sticks for the legs and cherry tomato halves for the top.
