The humble beetroot gets a child-friendly makeover with these yummy pink recipes from nutritionist Chloe Moir.
As a parent, it can be difficult to get your kids to eat certain vegetables. The humble beetroot is typically an uninteresting vegetable for kids, but it's packed full of nutrients, making it a great vegetable to sneak into your child's diet.
Beets are an excellent source of folate (vitamin B9), which plays a role in new cell development and is vital for babies and young children. It's also higher in manganese (a mineral we don't offend hear about), which contributes to healthy bone structure and is important for growing children.
Not only is beetroot packed full of nutrients, it acts as a natural food colouring to turn these nutritious child-friendly recipes into intriguing pink treats that will be excited to eat.
