Today's Sunday Supper Movement event is KID FRIENDLY VEGETABLE RECIPES and is hosted by Anne of Simple and Savory. I am thankful that my big kids love vegetables, so I've never really had to hide vegetables in food. My youngest is currently in his beige food stage, but I have high hopes that he will also love vegetables as much as the rest of us do. I really attribute the big kids being so open to vegetables because Nick and I eat basically every vegetable there is.

I think both of the big kids love broccoli the most and love when I fix shells and cheese with broccoli added to it. I know a lot of kids will eat vegetables if they have cheese on it, so this recipe is really good for picky eaters too. I personally think you could adjust the amount of broccoli if it makes your picky eaters side eye all the green, but we love lots and lots of broccoli, so we needed it all! I am really excited to see what my fellow Sunday Supper bloggers have to share because I put veggies in everything!
