Super Foods Recipes for Kids

 14 Super Foods Recipes for Kids - Inner Child Food

It’s almost 2014 and I know a lot of families are looking to eat healthier. I looked around at our contributor’s blogs and found some great super foods recipes that parents and kids will love. So, get ready to start fresh, discover some new foods and be ready to be healthy in 2014!

Super foods can come in many shapes and forms. The recipes below contain ingredients such as kale, sweet potatoes, eggs, quinoa, coconut, berries, avocados and more. You know, all of those super foods that you keep reading about in magazines or seeing on TV shows like Dr. Oz. These recipes provide you with an easy way to incorporate those super foods that are good for you in so many ways. A few of them, like the Cheesy Butternut Squash Pasta Bake can be doubled and frozen to make for an easy meal at a later date. Strawberry Mango Salsa can be made in bulk for a few days worth of easy breakfast. We even snuck in a chocolate waffles recipe because cocoa is often listed among the super foods.
