I discovered this great website called Supersprowtz.com recently I would like to let you know about. This is a site that is filled with a ton of information on how to get you kids to eat healthy with also games for your kids. There are recipes, videos and they also have dvd’s and books you can buy. One look at the characters called The Super Sprowtz and you will know why kids love them. There is also a section for parents with great information on nutrition and health. You kids will love the videos and books because the characters are cute and are fun for the kids to watch. Here is one of their videos
The founder Radwa Agrawel owns several organic pizza restaurants in New York along with her sister. She often visits schools with the Super Srowtz teaching kids how delicious vegetables can be. The books and videos are very entertaining, your kids will love to read about the different characters and their abilities.
Here is one recipe from Supersprowtz.com that you and your child can make together
Quinoa and Spinach Pie
Quinoa and spinach make a great team. They are both high in fiber and protein and compliment each other in texture and taste. Quinoa actually has a complete protein profile-containing all eight essential amino acids, making it an ideal grain for vegetarians and vegans who may struggle with getting complete protein. The ‘popping’ texture of the quinoa makes this fun to eat for children and parents alike! (Serves 6)
1/2 cup quinoa, rinsed and drained
1 large bunch of spinach
3 Tbs olive oil, divided
2 medium onions, thinly sliced (~2 cups)
2 green onions, thinly sliced (~1/4 cup)
1/4 cup chopped fresh dill
1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese
1/4 cup goat cheese, grated
3 eggs, beaten
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
2. Place quinoa in a saucepan with 1 cup of water and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes until the water has evaporated and quinoa is light and fluffy.
3. Heat large pot over medium heat and cook spinach until its wilted (~3 minutes). Drain excess water from spinach and add to the quinoa.
4. Heat 1 Tbs. oil over medium-high heat and add the onions. Cook until they are golden brown. Add the onions to the spinach-quinoa mixture.
5. Add the dill, feta and goat cheese to the mixture and stir in the beaten eggs, season with salt and pepper.
6. Pour 1 Tbs olive oil into the pie pan or casserole dish. Add the quinoa mixture and bake 20 minutes. Drizzle olive oil over top and bake for another 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.
