Veggie Smackdown! Spinach vs. Kale

Friday, February 7th, 2014

I have tried it ALL. Bribery. Threats. Withholding of dessert. I’ve even changed the name of green peas to energy pellets. No go. None of it. Nothing works! What I wouldn’t do for my 3+ and almost 2-year-old to eat something green. My son even picks the basil flecks off of his cheese pizza. Where did I go wrong?

I read this info-graphic from the March issue of FamilyFun with a longing stare…with the hopes and dreams that one day my children will get excited about spanakopita or kale chips. I may have to resort to the spinach-in-the-brownie trick. Or maybe I just need to convince them that Transformers and Hello Kitty can’t get enough of the stuff!

ps…beets and spinach are related? Who knew?
