Cookin’ with Kids: Avocado Recipes and Mini Chef Contest!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Avocados from Mexico for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Cooking with Kids

“The belly rules the mind.”  – Spanish Proverb

That’s never more true than when talking about children! A kiddo with an empty tummy is the crabbiest kind. And as moms, we don’t want to just fill those tummies up with junk food and empty calories – we want our little ones to get the best possible nutrition, right? But what do you do when your kids don’t want to eat the fruits and veggies that you lovingly serve? {You do serve them “lovingly” right, every time?? Lol} – Busy Mom Solution: Involve your kids in the kitchen, and they’ll be much more likely to finish what’s on their plate! The boys at my house love helping me put meals together. The Little Mister helped me make one of our favorite lunch-time snacks today – keep reading to check it out!

Mini Chef Video Contest

The Mini Chef Video Contest finalists have been chosen – and public voting starts TODAY on YouTube!! {The winning video gets $1,000 in cash, plus some other awesome prizes!} You’ll find 10 adorable kiddo’s sharing their favorite recipes in their own kitchens – watch the videos with your kids, pick your favorites, and get them excited to become your little meal-time helper too. When you get the kiddo’s involved, and let them help you choose healthy ingredients, and use them to prepare super-yummy meals, they’ll be much more excited at meal time.

Avocados from Mexico

A great ingredient to include in your families meals are avocados!! These fruits {yep, they’re a fruit!} are packed full of the vitamins that your kiddo’s need to grow big and strong – Just 3 slices of a creamy and delicious avocado provides potassium, fiber, folate, vitamin C, E, and B-complex vitamins that help support memory! Now that’s a super snack, right? If you’ve never thought about introducing avocado’s as a snack food for your kids – it’s definitely time to try it out. I’ll share a couple favorite recipes from our family…


Tangy Turkey Wraps

Mash up a couple of slices of avocado, and spread onto a flour tortilla, stopping about an inch away from the edges. Top this with a slice of turkey, sprinkle with cheese and grated carrots, and add a bit of your favorite BBQ sauce. Roll it up, cut in half, and enjoy!

Avocado Kabobs

{So fun to say, lol.} Using wooden skewers, thread each one with the following: Olives, Salami Cubes, Mozzarella cheese balls, avocado chunks, and cherry tomatoes. Line ’em up on a tray, spray with a bit of olive oil or balsamic vinaigrette dressing, then sprinkle with parmesan cheese or dried herbs. Kids love the bite-size pieces, and they’re a really fun appetizer for holiday entertaining too!
