This week is all about eating new foods, trying new things, and enjoying these delicious treats! We asked Sparkle Kids what their favorite foods were and then searched the Sparkle Recipe Book to find recipes that would match up with some of their favorites. From crab and seaweed to eggs and cupcakes, there are lots of interesting new things to try!
This is a fun and different way to eat berries — a thick berry syrup with sugary dumplings. Like Martin and Sylvia, your kids are sure to love this new kind of dessert.
This is for all the kids who love seaweed. I know both my children love it. These handrolls are fun and customizable.
So Much Kale
Kale is one of our favorite greens. We grow green and purple kale. A few years ago, we listened to the So Much Kale story, tried out the kale cupcakes, and were instantly hooked. This is a fun one to get your kids to try kale in a different way.
Eggs in a Poke
If your kids are on the fence about eggs, or if they love eggs but have had enough of them scrambled, try out this recipe — a quirky way to enjoy eggs in toast.
Granola is always a winner. It's sweet, crunchy, and filling. You can also customize it to fit your child's favorite tastes.
Pizza is a unanimous favorite. There is no better way to get kids to eat new veggies than to cover it with cheese and put it on bread. Grilling pizza takes the flavor profile to a whole new level as well!
Crab is perhaps not a traditional "kid-food," but it is certainly sweet, fresh, and delicious. My kids love crab even though they have been desert-dwellers for their whole lives. These cakes are fun and easy to make and give you that classic crab cake taste.
Take the classic grilled cheese and mix it up with fun new flavors! This is an excellent way to try new things!
Mac and Cheese
This homemade mac and cheese is an excellent way to get your kids to try homemade foods if you don't often cook. Also — kids love mac and cheese. Period.
