You can call it clean eating or eating healthy, but no matter what you call it if it doesn’t taste good your kid isn’t eating it!
If you’ve decided to make the switch and make clean eating a priority at your house, here are fifteen of the best clean eating recipes your kids will love!
What Is Clean Eating?
Clean eating or eating clean means eating food in its natural state – or as close as possible!
When you’re on a clean eating diet you:
1) Eat whole foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats
2) Keep your intake of processed foods (junk food, fried food & sugar) to a minimum.
If you’re trying to healthy-up your diet, you know eating clean is tough for an adult, and close to impossible for a child who lives for the drive-through!
But it doesn’t have to be.
You can clean up your kid’s food one recipe at a time. Remember, take small steps towards eating healthier each day.
That will be so much easier than trying to do a complete overhaul – which will stress everyone out!
