As it feels like we are slowly edging towards summer and hopefully much warmer days, I feel like I’m starting to look forward to eating more salads, more fruit and less “heavy meals” that we frequently eat during the colder months.
That being said, it seems like salad is something that isn’t often associated with small people, and so whilst the grown ups in the family are happy to either eat salad as a meal in itself or as a side dish, kids are often are not!
Fortunately, salad doesn’t have to mean a limp bit of lettuce and some token tomatoes thrown in for good measure!
There are so many different ingredients that you can include in a salad to make them more exciting and more of a meal in itself as opposed to just something on the side!
Salad Ingredients To Try
- fresh fruit
- nuts & seeds
The combinations are endless! Get creative and you’ll find a combination that works for you or your kids!
