Captain Create knows a game you can play to get your kids excited about eating veggies. Check out his video below!
A fun veggie recipe to make with your kids is a build-it-yourself recipe, like Garden Veggie Pizza.
If you have a pizza crust on hand, great! If not, use flatbread, an English muffin, or even a bagel. Kids are more likely to eat something they’ve made themselves. You might be surprised at the veggies your kids will try when it’s on their very own pizza creation. Set out all the veggies you can find from your fridge, pantry, freezer, or garden and let the kids go to work creating their own masterpiece. Enjoy!
