Well I am here trying to solve your problems by sharing 5 Ways to Sneak Veggies into Home Cooked Pizza for the Kids.
I have experimented few of these ways with my nephew since my lo is too young to eat a Pizza. And few of them are basis my research. Instead of facing a showdown at the dinner table these tips may help your kid eat healthy at the same time your kid is delighted as ever . So here I am sharing these 5 ways to Sneak Veggies into Home Cooked Pizza for the Kids
You can apply this method if your kid is just fussy but has well balance taste-buds for veggies. All you can do is creatively design the topping in the shape of their favourite cartoon character, some random theme etc. The Idea is to present the food well – what is good to eye will be good to eat as well. In this I have shared a rainbow theme example that goes with the current monsoon season and has loads of veggies stuffed to it
2. HIDDEN VEGGIES
This trick you can apply when your kid shows ultimate tantrums to have only cheese pizza but does not care about the taste. Select the veggies of your choice, cook it well and blend it a mixture. Mix the veggies with the tomato based pizza sauce and spread it on the base of the pizza. Well the good part is there are veggies in it which your kid does not know about and your mission is accomplished. However make sure you use the right combination of vegetables
3. Create Colourful Mini Pizzas
Before I express my view point, plz dont go by the look of the pic. This is for reference only. The idea is to create colourful mini pizza by changing the ingredients of the pizza sauce. So one sauce is made of tomatoes, other one is spinach, the third one is beetroot mixed with carrots. Just create a separate base for the pizza and make your dinner table colourful.
4. MAKE YOUR OWN PIZZA DOUGH USING CAULIFLOWER
YES, You read it write. Make your own pizza dough using the vegetable cauliflower. There are many recipes available on youtube. Many make use of egg. but incase you are vegetarian like me try the vegan recipe of cauliflower dough pizza. It may sound strange but there are brands abroad who only sell cauliflower dough to consumers, restaurants etc. This is one of the best and healthy option we have
5. Cottage Cheese is the Cheese
This is another way to offer a good protein intake to the kids. Create a mixture of Cottage Cheese-Mozzarella Cheese and Parmesan or the cheese your lo prefers in ratio of 3:1. The mixture will ensure your kid eats healthy and at the same time he can see cheese dripping off from the sides.
I hope these little hacks would help you to get your kid eat healthy and also relish his tastebuds at the same time. A little hardwork from our side can ensure we teach them to live healthy.
