I hear grumblings a lot from families who just cannot seem to get anything good into their kid’s diets without getting the proverbial EWWWW it’s green! Or whatever color it may be is usually the turn off. Unfortunately our society has programmed our precious children into thinking that cherries should look like maraschinos and cheese should be neon orange and yogurt is bright blue. So when I find companies on the market making an effort to help us sneak some things into our kid’s diets without all the fuss…I say bring it on. Of course if you’ve ever worked with me as a client you know that I truly believe in teaching your children how to make better choices with food first and foremost; however, sometimes we’ve just got to have a break and use some easy dishes that are already loaded up with goodness. Some of my favorites are Dr. Praegers which has yummy spinach cakes. They also come in sweet potato and plain too. A dollop of sour cream on top masks the color and they are crispy, light and yum. Happy Bites has amazing mac n cheese bites plus salmon sticks are fab too. So, the newest on the market is a company called Kidfresh. I was lucky enough to have them send me some samples and coupons. So after you read this blog if you DM or email me, I’ll give you one of their FREE & $1 off coupons.
Matt Cohen, Kidfresh founder, wanted more delicious and healthy meal options for his own children as well as meals that were quick and easy for parents. He enlisted a top chef and a pediatric nutritionist to find just the right recipes for kids. They launched their first store in New York City which offered natural and organic children’s meals prepared daily in their kitchen. They had so much local and international interest that they wanted to offer the meals to grocery stores nationwide. Hence, the new Kidfresh frozen meals were born. The meals are variations of children’s favorites while packed with vegetables. They contain nothing artificial made without BPA or phthalates as well as use environmentally-friendly packaging. We say thumbs up to a delicious and conscientious combination! My 8 year old son loves the macaroni and cheese wagon wheels dish! And even better than the taste, the packaging is super kitschy and cute to look at & doesn’t scream ‘I’M HEALTHY’. So, date night out for you and your spouse doesn’t always have to be junk—throw one of these in too for a cleaner choice. Don’t forget to email me about the freebies I have from Kidfresh so you can try it for yourself.
