5 Easy (and Healthy) Dinners for Fussy Kids

Spaghetti

We like to think of spaghetti as kid-proof camouflage. You can hide a lot of nutritious ingredients in a red sauce, and your exacting babies will never know the difference. Antioxidants, minerals, protein and vitamins by the score are all at your disposal if you're super sneaky. The trick is to hide some of the foods you know your kids need in the sauce in a way that will be undetectable. Grind ingredients small, and use small portions of the types of foods kids often find bitter, like spinach and broccoli. Oh, and to make sure you're packing in as much fiber and goodness as possible, use whole wheat pasta.
