Vegetables are one of the major contributors to a kid’s growth. Research has definitively shown that if you keep offering and keep offering, children will eventually turn grumpy. It can be a challenge to eat the recommended servings each day. And when a craving for creamy mac and cheese calls, it's tough to ignore a grumbling tummy and cheese cravings and opt for a bowl full of veggies instead.

Well, do not worry, we have some tips to sneak vegetables into your kids’ diet even if they crave for something cheesy.

>Mix cauliflower into scrambled eggs: Steam and pulp or finely grate cauliflower to mix with snarled eggs. Try it with chicken or tuna salad for a full entrée. Your kid will love the mixture.

>Frittata it: Every kid will love starting the weekend with an egg-heavy brunch. Mix eggs with veggies for a healthy and hearty breakfast for your kid. Bonus points for making enough to munch on all week.

>Add minced broccoli to scrambled eggs: This veggie addition doesn't change the texture of eggs and fits in an entire serving of veggies. Your kid will never notice the veggie in the taste.

>Add greens to breakfast smoothies: Trying to add green veggies to your kid’s meal. A handful of spinach or kale blends well with any fruit smoothie. Try the classic Green Monster by blending 1 cup milk, 1 frozen banana, 2 handfuls spinach, and 1 tablespoon almond butter.

>Experiment with veggie noodles: When your kid demands eating noodles, use a spiralizer or julienne tool to create zucchini, squash, asparagus, or cucumber noodle and skip the pasta altogether and add extra veggies to the sauce for an extra dose of nutrients.

So, you can try the above tips to sneak vegetables into your kids’ diet.
