Making Vegetables Fun

Make Your Own Veggie Pizza

Nothing creates dinner buy-in like making it yourself. And nothing gets kids excited for eating healthier like the prospect of pizza. Make dinner an event by taking your kids to the grocery store or farmer’s market and giving them a “veggie budget.” Decide how much they can spend and let your kids each pick out a few veggie toppings for their pizza.

Buy a few wholegrain or gluten-free pizza crusts, any kind of tomato or pasta sauce, and some low-fat mozzarella. Then, let the assembly begin! Task your children with creating the most creative and veggie-filled pizzas possible. Bake at 425 degrees for 10-12 minutes or according to crust package instructions. In a few short steps, dinner is made—and it’s eaten even quicker than that!
