Have you been trying to get out kids to eat healthier? Last month was National Nutrition Month and to keep with that theme, I’ve been trying to find ways to get our kids to eat more fruits and veggies. While researching recipes I found Bean Sprout Cafe, an innovative cafe that gives families the opportunity to get away for 30 minutes. They offer healthy, yummy food including organic baby food. They can hold birthday and tea parties for your little ones special day. There are classes and a month full of events. It sounds like the perfect place to introduce your children to new foods. The only problem: Its in Wisconsin. I’m thinking we’re not going to be visiting for awhile.
The good news: They have created a fun cookbook filled with recipes and activities to make your child want to eat their beans. Bean Appetit has captured accolades nationwide including being on Martha Steward Radio. I was excited to see how well the recipes would work. We made the High Note Nibbles. The kids were a little put off at first by the rye bread but I asked them to just try it. Charlie wound up loving it so much that he ate the whole “piano” and asked for more. There are so many other recipes we want to try. I love the ones that give your recipes for staples like pancakes. We’re trying the Stick Stacks. Homemade pancakes, strawberries, kiwi and blueberries. Sweet but nutrious.
You can try some of the recipes by checking out Bean-go. Make sure if you test a recipe that you let me know because I want to know how your little ones liked it as well as letting Bean Sprouts know by filling out their survey.
Keep an eye out for Bean Sprouts on your favorite morning TV shows.
BUY IT: Make sure you purchase your copy of Bean Appetit: Hip and Healthy Ways to Have Fun with Food.
