Crunchy Kale Chips (Seriously, They're Good!)

You know kale is a nutrition powerhouse, thanks to vitamins A, C and K. But how do you actually get your kids to eat it? Bake up some kale chips: Tear kale leaves into bite size pieces; wash thoroughly, then dry (a salad spinner makes the task easy). Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle some salt on them, then pop into a 350-degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes. “They’re a much better choice than potato chips -- and go down just as easy,” says Sarah Krieger, RD, a spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association. Plus, the olive oil helps your tot’s body absorb the soluble fiber and vitamins in the veggie.
