5 Superfoods Your Kids Will Actually Eat

Posted on: August 2nd, 2016

Superfoods! We all know the buzz.

These are the foods that are packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and more nutritious goodness your body needs to thrive. They’re great for overall wellness. But sometimes, it can be tough to get kids on board with the idea. I mean who has ever heard of a kid who loves kale?

So how can you work superfoods into your kids’ (and other picky-eaters) diets?

Look no further than our list of 5 superfoods your kids will actually enjoy eating!

1. Blueberries

Talk about delicious and nutritious! Blueberries are sweet, tangy, chock full of antioxidants and easy to grab-and-go. Pair them with any lunch or snack, from oatmeal to trail mix. These berries can help ward off cancer and other diseases.

2. Sweet Potatoes

These yummy roots are not just for the holiday season anymore. Full of beta carotene, vitamins E and B6, potassium, and iron, sweet potatoes work great as a side-dish for lots of meals. Sub them for mashed potatoes, bake them for a healthier “french fry” option, or even substitute them for rice as the base of a dish.



3. Nut Butter

Go beyond the peanut! There’s a whole world of nut butters out there waiting to be explored. Look for natural nut butters without hydrogenated oils. Almond, Cashew, and Soy butters are delicious and usually easy to find at most grocery stores. To up the nutrition factor, look for butters with the fewest ingredients possible. You want them to be primarily just nuts and maybe some salt.


4. Avocado

Its cheery green color makes this superfood as fun as it is good for you! Avocados are a great source of good fats, the monosaturated kinds, found mostly in fish and nuts. Our body uses these types of fat for development and growth — just what your little ones need most.


5. Yogurt

Yogurt has been a kid-friendly snack time staple for years. Make their favorite snack a superfood without them even noticing by looking for natural fruit yogurts without a lot of added sugar. Yogurt has tons of vitamins and minerals, including calcium, protein, vitamin B, zinc and phosphorous.
