Kids Tested, Mother Approved Healthy Pizzas

We attended another Whole Kids Cooking Club class at Whole Foods. The Healthy Eating Specialist had two healthy vegetarian pizzas for the kids to create.  One sweet and one savory.

The savory pizza was made on sandwich thins, hummus with  shredded carrots, broccoli, romanesco broccoli, red and yellow bell pepper, zucchini and spinach as their topping options.

The sweet pizzas were made on flat sandwich thins made with with raisins and flax seeds. The topping options were peanut butter, almond butter, sliced strawberries, bananas, kiwi, blueberries & raspberries. None of the kids seemed to have a problem with any of these options.

The kids loved making their pizza’s. It was fun and easy for them to do. My little one always digs right in there and throws all the ingredients on her plate. The funny thing is, if I would have offered my 7 year daughter and 6 year grandson romanesco broccoli earlier in the day they probably would’ve said no. In a setting like this however, they were all more then willing to eat it or at least try it.

 I recommend taking your picky eaters to Whole Foods  for a Whole Kids Club cooking class. For $5.00, they provide a fun environment with kid friendly food ideas that empower kids to try  new things.
