How many of these foods do your kids eat?

26 Mar

Recently I came across a list on Babble, which listed 10 Super-Foods Your Kids Should Be Eating Now. I was immediately intrigued. I wondered what the foods were, and whether or not any combination of my kids were eating them. Below is the list and I’ve shared with you how my kids fare. How many of them do your kids eat?

1) Blueberries: All three eat these

2) Sweet Potatoes: Elizabeth likes them

3) Natural Nut Butter (for kids without allergies to nuts): My kids eat chocolate peanut butter but I don’t think that counts. They eat regular peanut butter, but it’s generally Skippy so that’s not all natural either.

4) Avocados: Alex and Liz like them

5) Broccoli: they all like it

6) Yogurt: They all like it, especially if it has crushed up Oreos in it, or is Boston Cream Pie flavored, which I’m not sure is quite what they had in mind here.

7) Tuna and Salmon: They all liked salmon the last time we had it, they all like tuna and spaghetti and Liz likes a regular ole tuna sandwich, even just tuna in a bowl.

8) Eggs: They like em’ hard boiled, fried, scrambled, and Caroline even likes just whites.

9) Beans and Legumes: Here we fall short. Alex and Liz like peas and Liz likes Lima beans, but overall they’re not huge bean eaters other than string beans, which Caroline in particular, loves.

10) Seaweed: Unless it’s wrapped around sushi, which we get to have only once in a blue moon, they don’t really have a whole lot of seaweed opportunities here. Two out of three like sushi though.

So now that you’ve seen the list, how did your family fare? What do you think about the list? As I read it I thought of several other really good for you foods that my kids do eat, so even though we missed a few things on the list, I know there’s other really good things that they eat also and that makes me feel good!

    I’m not sure about the seaweed. All the others she would gladly eat. I know she would try it, ‘The Girl’ is good about trying new things. Whether she would like it, I’m not sure… As far as the adults in the fam, Hubs and I enjoy all of these items. I am not a huge fan of sushi, but I like the dried seaweed snacks you can buy, which I’m sure are VERY healthy for you! 😉

    we fare alright… My girls love seaweed! They sell a really tasty pack of seasoned, dried seaweed squares at Trader Joe’s. I’m always a little afraid to send it to school with them because I don’t want them to get teased -ugh! But… You might want to give it a try, I bet your girls will like it 🙂
