Is Your Child A Picky Eater? Here Are Veggie Dishes You Can Whip Up

There’s no denying the benefits that vegetables can provide for your child. They are nutritious, they protect against diseases and boost development. However, not all kids love vegetables—perhaps even you didn’t like them as a child! 

Worry not. If your child is not a vegetable fan, there are still some dishes you can cook so she won’t miss out on the advantages of eating veggies as she grows up.

By simply mixing eggs, onions, spinach, and cheese with milk and baking powder, you’re giving your child a nutritious snack—great for breaks when studying!
