By now, I'm sure you're thinking ahead to Thanksgiving and what you'll be serving for the big event. Since you'll be spending plenty of time in the kitchen, you may find it difficult to keep your kids occupied and out of your hair while you cook. Well, if you can't keep your eye on them because you're in the kitchen, maybe it's time to let them join you in helping to prepare those yummy dishes.
Country Crock has been helping us home chefs create delectable family-friendly dishes for years and they've created a whole section of delicious Thanksgiving recipes to be thankful for. Getting kids to eat their vegetables is a constant struggle for most parents, so perhaps this holiday season, try getting them involved in the preparation.
Also, by using Country Crock to make your vegetable side dishes taste even better, you might have your children as excited to eat their veggies as they are to eat the turkey itself!
These veggie recipes from Country Crock are perfect for turning your little ones into sous chefs for the day. Whether mashing potatoes or seasoning squash, kids of all ages can get involved and discover that eating veggies is fun and enjoyable. With 70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than butter, adding Country Crock to these dishes is a perfect way to keep your Thanksgiving meal delicious, and loved by the entire family.
You’ll also find that when kids contribute to the feast, they are more likely to eat the dishes they’ve helped prepare.
