Helping the kids eat their veggies can feel like a fruitless task—it can be so hard when they seem to refuse them all! But we have some fun strategies that are quick and easy from a real mom that just might help.
Meet Ilene Godofsky Moreno
Ilene runs The Colorful Kitchen. is the author of two cookbooks, and is the mom to two little kids. The food she makes at home is plant-forward (and vegan), so she’s come up with some great ways to make veggies more appealing to the kids. We talked through some of her favorite ideas on this week’s Comfort Food podcast including:
- Favorite dips and sauces for vegetables.
- How she came to focus on color as an entry point for how she cooks.
- How she likes to have her kids in the kitchen—and how that can help.
- Her tips for prepping produce to simplify weeknight cooking.
- Her approach to family meals and how she tries to keep them free from food stress.
- And so much more!
TIP: She has fun posts where she shares what her kids eat in the day.
