Kids will be getting iron, magnesium, zinc as well as fiber. When buying bread, first check the label – whole-wheat flour should be listed as the first ingredient. One way to make kids eat whole-wheat bread instead of white is to serve it with melted cheese.
Idea for picky-eaters: Use cookie cutters to make finger sandwiches in fun shapes. Kids will be excited to eat an animal shaped sandwich and won't notice that the bread is of a darker colour. Or mix a few drops of natural colour into cream cheese, add stars made of fruit and sprinkles et voila, unicorn toast.
Tomatoes contain a lot of vitamin C and a great amount of fiber. If your kids won't eat them fresh, chunked, or sliced, try lightly grilling them with a little olive oil.
Idea for picky-eaters: Tiny grape tomatoes are really sweet. With a bit of creative presentation, your kids won't be able to resist it. Transform them into a car with tomato wheels or ladybird decoration on vegetable waffles.
