Hanukah: The Perfect Time to Celebrate Veggies, Too!

Hanukah is the perfect time to introduce new veggies to your kids! Instead of traditional potato latkes, sub potatoes for sweet potatoes (or try half potatoes and half sweet potatoes!). Make a few with parsnips, carrots and/or beets. Let your children pick their own combinations and then have them rate the flavors and pick their favorites! Getting children involved and giving them an opportunity to voice an opinion is key to expanding their palate.
