KALE CHIPS AND SWEET PEPPER STRIP that your tots will love.

KALE CHIPS

Kale is included in the cruciferous vegetable family that have a lot of healthful benefits. I do have a toddler that have a strong opinion on foods, so I did a small batch of this just to try if she will like it. To sum up kale's benefits : antioxidant, anti-inflammatory and cancer-preventive benefits. For a complete info you can refer to this link http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=38

Here's the easy and yummy recipe for kale chips.

    1 or 2 big bunches kale, leaves chopped to chip sized pieces
    1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
    1 tablespoon oil ( EVOO, would be great)
      salt, to taste
    1-2 tablespoons favorite seasoning blend ( i skipped this for Lucy)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Pour the apple cider vinegar, oil and seasoning onto kale (in a bowl). Mix to coat all pieces.
Bake for 10 minutes or until crispy.
Makes: 3  Cooking Time: 10 minutes


YELLOW PEPPER STRIPS

Aside from its sweet taste, yellow bell peppers are known for its high content of Vitamin C. ( as well as the other bell pepper family). For a complete health benefits you can refer to this link ( just so i need to convince you more) http://healthbenefits-of.org/2010/05/the-health-benefits-of-bell-peppers.html

Here's the most simple snack you can give to your tot:

Yellow bell pepper , cut to strips ( be sure that your tot is a good solid eater, and as always, never leave them unattended..as sometimes they have the tendency to over stuff their mouth :) )
 Vanilla Yogurt ( or any flavor depending on your kids choice)
Salad Supreme , just a dash ( u can skip this if you like)

Sprinkle a lil bit of the Salad supreme on top of the yogurt for dipping. Put a fair amount of yellow pepper in your kids favorite plate. Yummy and healthy
