Toddlers and Children can be such picky eaters that at times we often shake our head in amazement that they get enough nutrition! They go through phases where they only eat bread or yogurt or whatever their particular favorite is. I personally find myself worrying constantly if my son gets enough vegetables in his diet. We do pretty good with fruits, carbs and dairy in our house and try to mix the veggies in with things like smoothies, muffins, scrambled eggs and sandwiches etc. But sometimes I am singing the veggie blues!
This past weekend, despite refusing to at any veggies, I decided to try some veggie croissants! You only need a few things and it takes about 20 minutes to prepare these tasty morsels! Plus the kids can help you which is a fun way to integrate learning, math and cooking all together!
You will need the following:
* your own dough or precut croissants (I LOVE Trader Joe's or Pillsbury)
* an assortment of your choice of veggies finely diced. I used brocoli, onion, zucchini and squash above.
* Cheese - I used a Mozzarella that had hints of a BBQ flavor which I found at Windfall Market. If there are dairy allergies, try a soy milk cheese or rice milk cheese.
* Although mine did not have chicken-you could add this in for protein :)
