A quick and easy fondue recipe, the trick for getting kids to eat vegetables
“It’s incredible,” She says, in her sweet voice with the southern drawl, looking around at the meal she worked on for hours that they hardly consumed. The forks well rested under the plates that are piled with veggies they declined to try. She wonders if there will ever be an end to the battle of “you need to eat your veggies” and them hiding them under the table, passing them to the dog, or the negotiation of “Can you eat these before she notices?”
She notices. We all know the struggle to have kids eat what their bodies need and our desire to provide them. The exhale that is taken when they take a bite of something new and the anticipation as we look for signs of a successful mission or a dismal fail. The absolute elation we feel when we have added another green to their diet and the struggle we have when they were denied again like a basketball player going up for a sure lay up only to be met at the last second by a defender with a long grasp. We saw victory and it was robbed at the last moment. That was until you learned the secret.
They say the secret is in the sauce. What if the secret is the sauce?
“They” are correct the secret to the vegetable denial diet is indeed resolved by the implementation of RAGÚ® Pasta Sauce into your dinner.
Italian Fondue brings back the fun to each meal while it encourages those picky kids to eat their veggies, it fills my soul to know that I have found a way to bring the fun back to dinner. I have succeeded in getting vegetables in my kids, and they love it. They no longer argue over trying new things. They look forward to it. A successful dunk has been achieved.
These are some great RAGÚ fondue options, you simply pour your favorite flavor into the fondue pot, crockpot, or heat on the stove and bring to the table place on a trivet for dipping.
These are my favorite options-
- breaded chicken strips already made
- grilled chicken
This easy to create fondue allows you to get dinner on the table quickly. You can grab dippers from the ready-made section in the store and find great choices in your freezer. I always keep cut veggies on hand in my refrigerator. This dinner idea is both fun and easy.
When I figured out that dipping was the answer to getting my children to try new things but to also eat the things I wanted them to eat, I decided that we will now have a #RaguWeeknightTradition.
I figured out the secret to vegetable consumption, and once I secured the trick, it was indeed “Incredible” to eat again. RAGÚ has no artificial flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, and no artificial history.
