April Fools Fake Out:
How to Sneak Healthy Twists Into Kids’ Favorites

  • Deceptively Delicious Desserts: If it was up to kids, dessert would be the only meal on the menu. Give your little chocolate fans an extra boost of protein and fiber along with their post-dinner treat by serving up double chocolate brownies made with black beans. Kids won’t be able to taste the secret ingredient, and you can feel good about the extra fiber. If your little ones are cookie fans, slip a serving of chickpeas into your next homemade batch for some added plant-based protein.
  • Masked Mac & Cheese: Mac & cheese is a kid favorite, but traditional recipes can often be low in protein, fiber and nutrients. Give your mac & cheese game an upgrade with a few simple swaps that pack in protein and veggies without an ounce of detection by even the pickiest eater. For a boost of beta-carotene and vitamin A, grate carrots and squash and blend right in with the cheesy goodness.
  • Saturday Morning Stacks: Give Saturday morning cartoons a fun, healthy breakfast to go alongside with detoxifying beets. Mix blended beets into your pancake batter to create cakes with a fun red color that kids will love with the added boost of folate, potassium and iron you want. Drizzle with your favorite maple syrup or fresh berries, honey and yogurt for a complete breakfast.
    With these April Fools’ Day-inspired tricks, you’ll be able to put a fun and healthy twist on your kid’s favorite dishes.

To pump up protein while eliminating unhealthy fillers and fat, swap hot dog slices in your next batch for naturally smoked sausages made with high quality cuts of meat. Simply Savory Sausages from Land O’Frost pack in the same flavor youngsters love with 35 percent less fat, at least 9 grams of protein, and no artificial colors, flavors, MSG or fillers.
