Spinach Salad

Spinach Salad

This Paleo Spinach Salad recipe is a great way to get the little ones their greens. Child friendly, it’s wonderfully healthy real food fare.

Children eat salad? Yes, it’s true. The boys eat this in heaps. The secret is fruit. My boys love fruit. I can generally get them to eat anything if I spike it with a little bit of fruit and insist they finish an entire portion before they get more. Common sense approach to avoiding kiddie food waste. And this way they can’t just pick out the raisins and leave the greens for me, the human leftovers vacuum.
