As a parents, we know our kids need to eat veggies, but our kids often have other ideas! I’ve found that by finely grating veggies and disguising them inside of burgers and meatloaves has been really successful, and these sneaky sliders, combine two ingredients that my daughter would NEVER eat if I put them on her plate in their true form.
As you will know I’m a HUGE advocate of having your children help you make dinner in the kitchen however if this is the first time you are making these for your kids, I would recommend NOT involving the first time you make them. You want them to enjoy the recipe, without knowing the ingredients for the first couple of times you serve them (hence the sneaky lol)
Beets are loaded with vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C. They are also an excellent source of calcium, magnesium, copper, phosphorus, sodium and iron. Its iron content, though not high, is of the highest and finest quality that makes excellent food that is blood building. This renders it highly effective in treating many ailments caused by our toxic environment and surrounding.
Kale is one of the very few vegetables that contain a decent amount of Omega 3, they are rich in calcium, copper, iron, potassium, and also high in Vitamin B1, B2, C, E and K. Similar to broccoli, it is also found to have anti-cancer properties that help fight cancer by boosting the repair of healthy cells and blocking the growth of cancer cells. Apart from this, kale is also rich in flavonoids that control indigestion, inflammation and stress. It is also known to help lower the bad cholesterol levels.
Kale is really important food for my family to eat, so I have to find ways to sneak it in there!
