As you probably know you are not the only one struggling with getting kids to eat more wholesome food such as grains.
I have 3 kids myself and I’m very lucky I can almost get them to eat any kinds of grains. But one of the tricks is to make sure that the grains are edible. I often make a very heavy sourdough rye bread with wheat grains. The only way I can get my kids to eat the bread is by making sure that the grains has been soaked before they are mixed into the bread dough.
Here just some ideas:
1. Replace 1/2 of the plain flour with wholegrain rye flour when you make cup cakes or any other cake and the kids don’t even notice.
2. Replace the plain flour with wholegrain wheat flour when you make meat balls.
3. Make your own muesli bars and add soaked dried grains.
4. Replace 1/3 of the plain flour with wholegrain wheat flour when you make pancakes.
And the list goes on.
I hope this will inspire you to add some more wholegrain into you food.
Thanks and good luck,
