18 September 2018
While children are growing up, it’s important to provide them with nourishing foods that can sustain their growth and it all starts in the kitchen.
Trying to introduce all organic recipes into your household, may not please everyone but they will surely benefit from eating them.
Just bringing in fruits and vegetables into your kitchen, sadly, is not enough. Instead, there are organic recipes that you can try to stealthily transform any fussy eater – they’ll be none the wiser.
As hard as mothers strive to cook only the best for their children, using organic ingredients for organic recipes will ensure that your little one is growing up strong and healthy.
And always remember to wash your organic vegetables and fruits thoroughly to make sure there are no pesticide residues.
Baked Avocado Fries
A great alternative to regular potato fries and definitely French fries – avocado fries will give your child the crunch they desire and the creamy goodness of the vegetable.
Avocados have been proven to protect the heart, increase brain function and aid with any inflammation in the body, control blood sugar and regulate insulin.
And baking the avocado fries removes any unnecessary oil that you might get when you fry them, leaving behind any unhealthy components and focusing on the good nutrients.
With almost 16g of fat, its best if you serve this as a side dish or a snack for your child. You can also make the same recipe but replace the avocados with sweet potato for another healthy alternative.
