These are not going to be an immediate hit for every picky eater!
If you have a child that finds green challenging, then it may not be a today food.
If you have a child that will accept green, these can be a great choice.
Texturally they are dry and crispy. This is often more comfortable for children who find many veggies challenging due to the feel.
The taste is also pretty neutral so not overwhelmingly ‘green’.
If we have a child that is okay with green but hasn’t tried them, then just touching them etc. is a great first step.
If we have a child that is okay with seaweed sheets or the nori around sushi then this is super similar.
Kale – I prefer the cavalo nero but any will work
Wash and dry the leaves. Cut into pieces, if you wish (smaller is always better for picky eaters)
Oil a baking tray and lay the leaves down flat.
Bake in the oven at about 170˚. Once crispy on one side, turn and crisp the other side too.
