IMG_8037While The Kid has never met a vegetable he couldn’t push away, sometimes even the his least favorite things can be seen in a new light if they are covered in maple syrup and pancake batter. I’m not sure why I didn’t try to turn my little guy’s short stack into a mini version of the food pyramid earlier, bot now it is an essential part of his diet.

At first there were some complaints of. “No kale.” But after a few days he gave in and now accepts his green flying saucers with flashing blue lights with the same relish as he did before they were packed with vitamins A,C and K.

You can use the proportions below to modify your favorite pancake recipe or mix. Just make sure you put the kale and carrot in a food processor, as your little finicky eater will probably reject the healthy food bits if they are too big. I increased the kale and carrot content over time as my son got used to it. The kale and carrot mix should make about 1 cup full after being put through the food processor. I also like to double the standard one egg that you add to a one cup mix to get a little more protein and nutrients in there for The Kid.

Blueberry, Kale and Carrot Pancakes
