How to add more healthy food to your kids meals.

I have been on a journey to eat healthier, I am adding more fruits and veggies to my family's diet.  After a while we get tired of eating salads. How can you add veggies to your diet without adding salads.  You hide them in everyday food.  Take any veggies, puree it and add it to your favorite recipes (some veggies work better than others).  The hard part is finding a blender that will puree the veggies.  Pureeing Veggies is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to make your meals healthier.

I search for the perfect blender and it found me.  That is why I was so excited when I was selected by House Party to host a" Blend it like a Ninja House Party"  sponsored by the Ninja Blender.  It is so easy and simple to host a house party.  If you are chosen to be a host the company send you FREE product.  All you have to do is to educate your guest about the product and share the product will them.  It's that simple, no selling involved!

So today my hostess box came for my "Blend it like a Ninja House Party".    I was ecstatic to  try out my new Ninja Blender.   The kids wanted to try some smoothies  so we bought some fresh fruit and starting blending.  The Ninja is a powerful machine and it does not take much to turn fruit, yogurt and ice cubes into a smoothie (about 5-10 seconds).  You can also add protein power or fiber to your child smoothie.   I used the cookbook that came with the Ninja to find delicious recipes for my guest to try. 




At my party we tied all kinds of recipes. Click here to see some of the recipes you can use with your Ninja Blender. We made a vegan broccoli soup with cashew, vegetable stock, and steamed broccoli.    





The Ninja Blender can add so much more flavor and nutrients to your kids food too.  You can puree vegetable ahead of time and freeze them in ice cube trays.   I like to add puree carrots to my hamburger and pizza sauce.  Add sweet potato to your child's Mac and Cheese.  Add a little cauliflower to your mashed potatoes.  Your choices are endless.  

The other day I made homemade spaghetti sauce for the first time and my family loved it so much more than the jars you buy at the store.  It was so fresh and delicious and I knew exactly what my family was eating.    


How do you add more nutrients to your child's food?
