In some families, the “z word” is too close for comfort with the “v word”. Yes, zucchini is indeed a vegetable. But this vegetable is not only loaded with nutrients, it’s loaded with fun too. Kids seem to have a thing for stuffed food. Perhaps it’s because foods that are stuffed give a little spin to otherwise boring meals. On another note, I know that vegetables offer a real challenge to many nutritious conscious parents. Did you know that your own attitude towards them tend to rub off on your children? When you treat them as something scary that you have to sneak into their mouths, that sends a strong, negative message. Vegetables, especially zucchini, can be fun and are packed full of flavor and that’s the message we want to relay to our children.
