Healthy teeth start with a healthy diet. With the everyday hustle and bustle that comes along with raising children, feeding your kids a properly balanced diet can seem like an impossible task. As your pediatric dentistry in Orlando we’d like to help you introduce kale into your kids’ diet.
Kale is one of those super vegetables complete with ample antioxidants, fiber, and vitamins K, A, and C. Introducing kale and other healthy vegetables into your child’s diet now will help them develop a taste for healthy choices down the road. Consider the following kid-friendly options to help integrate kale into your child’s diet:
- Add it to a smoothie. Adding kale to a fruit smoothie is a surefire way to give your kids a yummy vitamin boost.
- Make it into chips. Add a little olive oil and sprinkle some salt on a few kale leaves before putting them into the oven and they’ll be kale chips before you know it! Kids love the crunch.
- Mix it in. Kale makes a great accent in several dishes including salads, soups, omelets, pastas, and even desserts.
As your pediatric dentistry in Orlando, we hope that your child gets a kick out of some kale in their diet. Contact Pediatric Dentistry of Central Florida with any questions about your child’s dental health, or to schedule their next checkup!
