If you're out of ideas on how to make your child eat meat, fish and vegetables try adding them to daily meals for more color and vibrance that they will love

Like all parents, you dream that your children would enjoy all kinds of foods and never complain. But rest assured that it’s almost impossible to get your children to like absolutely everything. The main thing is to get them tasting as many different recipes as possible, as early as possible. From meat to fish to vegetables, here’s a roundup of ideas to ensure that your whole family enjoys eating lots of foods other than just baked chicken and pasta!
We can never say it enough – being creative in your cooking makes all the difference when you want your children to try out new recipes. With meat and fish, try to take it slow because strong-flavored meats and rubbery-textured seafood could simply push them away! To start with, choose foods that are both healthy and easy to eat. Take white meat like chicken shawarma for example and prepare in in a low-fat fryer such as Actifry. It has a subtle flavor that children tend to like. Red meat however, should be cooked through. Your Optigrill + can help you by automatically detecting the meat thickness and cooking it to perfection for delicious steaks every day. It’s to avoid any of the blood that most kids hate! When it comes to fish, buy fillets and make sure all the bones have been removed. Children often love prawns, mussels and other shellfish too, so long as they get the chance to taste them at an early age.
As for vegetables, try to experience different shapes and colors. Try carrot sticks, sweet potato chips, apple mash, marrow noodles… they will love them al! You can serve your vegetables with pasta, grains or rice, and even throw in some spices and herbs (fresh herbs can be stored in the freezer all year round).
