School Smarts: Getting picky eaters to add fruits and veggies to their diet

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Getting children to make healthy choices at mealtime begins at home. But parents frustrated by picky eaters may find that a good blender and a little creativity is all they need to break through those objections.

Pamela Sutton from the Head Start program at McFerran Elementary has some clever ways to get your children to eat their fruits and veggies...and like it!

She suggests making smoothies with a variety of produce. There is no real recipe. She uses a combination of kale greens, spinach, carrots, strawberries, blueberries, bananas, pineapples, greek yogurt with honey, ice and a little orange juice.

Most children like bananas, but to add a little extra nutrition, try something different.

Banana & granola

Plain granola

Soy nut butter

Honey

Put bananas on a popsicle stick. Drizzle melted soy nut butter over banana. Roll it in granola, and drizzle pure honey lightly over it.
