The eternal struggle for parents is to get their kids to eat high-nutrient foods. As adults we manage to swallow our kale salad and drink our green smoothie, but that's not always the case for our 2-, 6-, or even 14-year-old!
As a mom of three boys who have severe food allergies (dairy, gluten, eggs) and can't eat processed foods of any kind, I had to find a way to get them to eat from the garden and like it.
Here's one of my tricks: Let them eat cake (and ice pops!)
These three dessert recipes are not only family favorites, but they are also vegan, gluten-free, and filled with powerful nutrients. What's more, they are great treats to bring to a birthday party or barbecue—people won't even notice that they're not eating the real-deal, high-calorie, artery-clogging original!
