    Lettuce Boats for Fussy Eaters

    Updated: Mar 18

    Lettuce Boats are a great alternative to tortillas and wraps (see Label Watch Wednesday on why a lot of wraps and tortillas are best avoided) Cos lettuce is sturdy enough and a good shape to hold fillings. Let the kids fill their own, plus the mince is laden with cooked veg too. Letting kids having control over their fillings means they're more likely to try things they normally may not be interested in. Including raw veges in your day ensures that you are benefiting from nutrients and enzymes that are sometimes killed off during cooking of certain vegies.


    Broccoli is one of the main vegies that is best eaten raw due to certain important cancer fighting enzymes being damaged when it is cooked. Try this broccoli couscous salad, - chop raw broccoli in a food processor until it resembles couscous, place in a bowl, then mix in juice of one lemon, 1/3 c olive oil, mint, chopped nuts, raisins. Yum.
