Getting Your Greens

Leave a comment

Looking for ways to get your greens?  How about hummus with kale or kale applesauce?

Here is a healthy lunch idea for you or your toddler:  1.) cantaloupe, blueberries, strawberries with low-fat plain yogurt sprinkled with wheat germ and low-fat granola; 2.) kale hummus on toast; 3.) scoop of kale applesauce and 4.) WATER!

When you make applesauce and hummus at home it’s cheaper and you can easily add greens such as spinach, kale, or parsley.  Your toddler will never know.  My toddler LOVES hummus and applesauce!  A change of color – green – even better!  You can also try pumpkin or sweet potatoes in your hummus or peaches and strawberries in your applesauce.
