Make your family vegetable lovers

We all know that there are people and kids who don’t like vegetables.  This type of anti-vegetable attitude can make it very difficult for those of us who attempt to cook healthy and nutritious meals.  We also know that people who eat more vegetables and fruits as part of an overall healthy diet are likely to have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases. This is why eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is so vital.  However, back to the age old question, how do we get families who don’t enjoy vegetables to find the love again?

Doctors, mothers and fathers all over the world have tried and failed to get their families to eat vegetables.  They give you advice such as: “make them sit there until they eat it”, “find other ways to substitute the nutrition,” or better yet “make dinner fun.” While these very well may work, we have a better plan.  What if you were able to create and cook several fool proof vegetable recipes that any family would love, even those picky anti-vegetable eaters!

Hanover Foods Chef Jim Anderson came up with three foolproof vegetable recipes that we hope can help your families learn to enjoy vegetables and in turn reap all the health benefits that come with them.

Let’s start with a staple in any busy family, pizza.  Chef Anderson created this amazing pizza that is covered with delicious vegetables like mushrooms, spinach and peppers.  Add a little cheese and this nutrient packed meal or snack is sure to be a hit!
