Like most of the herbs on this list, parsley hails from the Mediterranean, where it's very well regarded for its versatility in the kitchen. Power-packed with large quantities of vitamins A and C, parsley is a great way to sneak some nutritional value into your kids' meals.
Parsley is popular as a garnish because of its bright green color, but its uses go way beyond that in the kitchen. You can find ways of mixing in parsley pretty easily. Toss it in with other green salad ingredients or use it in a fish sauce. Beware -- like many other herbs, parsley's flavor fades with heat, so add it toward the end.
