Hope you had a great weekend! We’re finally seeing some spring-like temperatures in New York, which was so nice. I’m excited to get cooking with spring produce like asparagus and peas, and my girls were excited to get outside for a bike ride the past couple of days!
In case you aren’t subscribed to my newsletter, here is a link to last week’s edition, which included my top tips for getting kids to eat salad. I know this is an issue many parents struggle with, and if your kids are eating other fruit and vegetables it’s ok if they don’t eat a salad per se, but hopefully these tips help if you want to make a salad for the whole family.
I’d love to know if these tips are helpful and work for you and what your experience is with kids eating salad!
