Recipes – Kids

Nurture’s kids recipes:

  • almost always include a fruit or a vegetable, as most children do not eat the recommended five servings a day (2 of fruit and 3 of veggies)
  • often use a Nurture-recommended piece of cooking equipment (rice cooker, slow cooker, and/or hand blender/food processor) with the goal of quick and easy meal preparation
  • often incorporate other Nurture-recommended foods besides fruits and vegetables (whole grains, beans, lentils, split peas)
  • are healthy, nutritious yet extremely delicious and FUN choices for kids!
