I was attempting to make my raw veggie burgers more attractive to my kids, hoping that they’d be more likely to eat them if they were fun!
So I dug out our collection of cookie cutters and made some simple shapes, like this car, a snowman, a tree, a truck, and some basic shapes.
We just laid the cookie cutter on the dehydrator tray, pressed some raw veggie burger mix into it with a teaspoon and then dehydrated it for the usual 5-6 hours.
And the results?
- 3yo who does not currently eat them said “I’m not going to eat one”
- 9yo who currently eats them happily, ate them even more happily, with a mouthful-by-mouthful description of a truck being demolished
It was a partial success, because they looked awesome and were definitely more fun to eat, but no luck enticing the 3yo to eat them.
I shall keep experimenting…
