One thing we struggle with in our home is convincing our children to eat raw vegetables. My little one, 17 months, eats anything and everything. . . but is beginning to mimic his 3.5 year old brother's "YeeeeeUCH" whenever a vegetable is on his plate.
To give them the nutritional power punch of fresh, local produce. . . and in celebration of this years Eat Local Challenge; we went to Times and bought an array of local fruits and veggies (produce shopping with toddlers is super fun!)
We then took them home to have a Juice Party! Who knew a 3.5 year old could drink 4 servings of fruit and vegetables in one sitting, and happily too!
Our favorite recipe:
one japanese cucumber
2 cups of kale
1/2 a beet
