Squash is something my kids have always taken to because they have had it since they were very young, but what about those big kids?It’s still a vegetable, right?!Kids are just notorious for pointing that out and making sure you know that they know it!
So how do we introduce squash to kids that have never had it before? Here are some ideas! (superhealthykids.com)
- Make it fun. Let them pick out the squash at the farmer’s market or store.
- Let them help you prep it. Let them get their hands in the middle and scoop out the seeds. Let them smear the butter all over! And put the squash on non-stick baking mats.
- A little drizzle of honey never hurt any! My kids will try just about anything if there is a promise of a little honey. A small drizzle isn’t going to sugar spike them, and quality honey has many nutritional benefits anyway. I might suggest that if you have super little ones – as in under age 3 or 4, this is probably unnecessary. Butternut squash in particular is super sweet on it’s own, and it’s best to just keep those palates super low key as long as you can on those little ones.
