Tips for Parents with Picky Eaters Using Birds Eye Veggies

  1. Fresh or frozen, it’s important to incorporate veggies in every meal. Click here to see more.
    9 out of 10 people don’t get the proper amount of vegetables on a daily basis, so it’s becoming increasingly imperative to include veggies with every meal. From a nutrition standpoint, there is little to no difference between fresh and frozen vegetables. For example, at Birds Eye, we flash freeze our veggies within four hours after harvest, locking in peak freshness, nutrients, taste, and color. Birds Eye vegetables are quick, delicious, and a great ally in getting a nutritious dinner on the table on even the busiest of nights. Close.
  2. You can get picky eaters more interested in dinner by involving them in the meal preparation. Click here to see more.
    We find that picky eaters get more excited about dinner when they’re engaged and included in the meal prep. Even something as simple as picking out which Birds Eye vegetable to eat that night can get kids more interested in dinner! Close.
  3. Keep your family interested by mixing up the veggie and flavor profiles. Click here to see more.
    It’s no secret that people get bored by the same type of meal or flavor, so change up the veggies you serve and the flavor profile with which you serve them. Luckily, Birds Eye provides families with more than 40 unique vegetable blends year round at affordable prices, so you can mix up your meal ideas all year! Close.
  4. Introduce new foods slowly, pairing them on the table with familiar foods. Click here to see more.
    We all know how hard it is to get kids to eat new foods, so be sure to introduce new foods and tastes slowly – developing healthy eating habits is more a marathon than a sprint. Don’t overwhelm kids with a dinner full of all-new foods. Serve new dishes alongside family favorites, such as dips, salsa or hummus with veggies to get them more willing to expand their palate. Close.
  5. Look for alternative vegetable occasions, including breakfast. Click here to see more.
    Veggies aren’t just for dinner! Another option for parents to help ensure their kids get the proper amount of vegetables is by combining Birds Eye frozen fruit and veggies to create fantastic smoothies. These are great for those mornings when you’re on the run, kicking off your day with delicious servings of fruit and vegetables! Close.
