How Garden Lites Helps Me Get My Family to Eat Vegetables

Are you exhausted from trying to get your family to eat their vegetables? I know, the struggle is real.Meet Garden Lites.

They are on the same mission we are, to get more nutrient rich vegetables and super foods into our diets.

They have removed the challenge of getting vegetables passed your lips and into your tummy by creating an enjoyable and easier way for us to eat our vegetables.

We are empty nesters so guess who needs to eat their vegetables in our home? Oh, we have our favorites and they show up on the dinner table but we could do better. Do you know how many ways it is possible to prepare your favorite vegetables? Yes, we do too. That is why we were both thrilled to find Garden Lites in the Live Naturally section of our Kroger.How to get your kids to eat vegetables

The reason we avoid the health food section of the grocery store is because we are convinced nothing over there tastes good. Am I right? We enjoyed exploring the freezers of the Live Naturally section in Kroger. There is actually quite a bit to choose from in Garden Lites products. We were pleasantly surprised.

We took home the Butternut Squash Bake and some Blueberry Oat muffins. My hubby showed me the Roasted Vegetable Bake and the Zucchini Souffle. He is a Zucchini lover so we’ll be trying that next along with the Chocolate muffins. I may even serve him those Chocolate muffins as a dessert. Who knew you could get your superfoods as a dessert?

The great thing about the muffins is they are delicious! You would never believe vegetables are the first ingredient in these muffins.

If your kids can make popcorn in the microwave, they can heat up their own after school snack. 10 seconds in the microwave is all it takes. My hubby is now packing them for his afternoon snack at the office.

I have been enjoying those delicious Blueberry Oat muffins for my own afternoon snack, especially on a busy work day when those vegetables help keep me going.

What did my husband say when he tasted those muffins? “No one would ever believe these have vegetables in them? This is delicious. I was not expecting these to taste so good.”

Who would have ever thought that you could actually enjoy a chocolate muffin made with 33% vegetables and it even tastes good? Thanks to Garden Lites, we can and those chocolate muffins are already on my grocery list.

The Live Naturally section at Kroger is no longer an area we avoid. The delicious tastes of Garden Lites is how they got us to eat more vegetables.

  1. Shirley,
    Thanks so much for stopping by and for taking the time to leave such kind comments!! The adults did truly enjoy the circus!! I loved watching my 30+ children laugh and applaud all the acts but it did break my heart when my great niece, Maddie, asked her Mom if they could come back next year. It is so sad that there will not be a next year…….It is so sad to sad the end of an American institution….

  2. Sounds like a nice way to get your veggies. Thanks for sharing at Over The Moon Party. Hope you come back next week so I can stop by again.

  3. I want to get more nutrient rich vegetables and super foods in my family’s diet but it becomes a challenging task to make a way of vegetables from mouth to tummy. These muffins are really good option for a meal and as they are flavorful will be loved by everyone. 🙂

  4. The Garden Lites Blueberry Muffins with zucchini and carrots in them I would love to try. These would be great for any one having trouble with their kids not liking veggies too. Thanks for sharing these awesome muffins and I can’t wait to try them.

  5. This would be a good way to get kids to eat their veggies. I have yet to find a child who would say “no” to muffins! I will let my daughter know so she can get some of these to give her son for a snack. I will also share your post with my cousin who has three young daughters, the youngest is the pickiest eater of all. All she ever says at dinner time is, “what’s in this?”

  6. These look great! Anything to help us sneak our veggies in is a win in my book. At our house we have a garden every year and try to eat healthy. These look like a great option for grab and go in the mornings. Thanks for sharing them with us!

  7. Luckily, I don’t have a problem eating my vegetables. I guess that if I did have a problem, it would be that I just don’t get enough of them. These muffins could definitely help me out there.

  8. It can be hard to get picky eaters to eat all their veggies. These sound like a great solution, and tasty too.

  9. Every year we grow a huge garden and even a herb and fruit garden. Always canning and dehydrating to preserve for the whole year. If someone isn’t able to make or just doesn’t want to take the time and effort this would be a great alternative.

  10. This looks good! We grow a garden every year and try to eat healthy. These look like an option for my kids to be able to make their own breakfast! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Veggies in a muffin? I’m totally on board. I haven’t seen these products yet. The next time I’m in Kroger, I’ll definitely pick up these muffins. They look yummy!

  12. This is totally want I need in my life. I don’t get enough veggies in my diet and this is a great way to sneak them in.

We enjoying hearing from you!
