We’ve all heard of ways to slip hidden vegetables into kids’ food – spinach brownies, cauliflower mac-and-cheese – and some parents regularly engage in the practice to boost their children’s diets.
But what happens when the food industry decides to do the sneaking for us?
In today’s New York Times, I write about a new line of frozen pizzas which reportedly contain over five servings of fruit and vegetables, as well as other, similar kid-friendly products currently on the market.
The makers of these produce-enhanced foods think they’re doing picky children a favor, but some experts disagree. I’d love to know what you think about all this, so please feel free to leave a comment here or on the Times website!
