The truth about veggies and toddlers

Hi y’all,

My name is Laura Max Rose, and if you don’t know me, I’ve been a proud brand ambassador for Recipe for Success (and specifically, the VegOut challenge) for nearly three years. I love our mission and I love bringing it to you in such a fun, easy way every day of the year!

I’ve been working with Recipe for Success since before my daughter, Selma, was born. Even though I used to post all day long about incorporating veggies into your children’s diet, I had no idea how difficult it would be until I had my very own child that only wanted popcorn and french fries! I swore I would never be one of those parents whose kids survived on Mac n’ Cheese and Cheerios until I ultimately became one. Feeding toddlers is some seriously tough business!

The #VegOut Challenge has not only helped me grow more conscious of my own veggie intake as a busy, working mom, but its also helped me stay mindful of what Selma is eating so I can be sure she’s getting the nutrition she needs. Feeding kiddos is no easy task, but with all of the delicious veggie recipes available to me through the VegOut website and the veggie tracker in the VegOut app, I’m able to make it a fun adventure for both of us and weave in some green beans and carrots between bites of cookies and crackers.

Now that we’ve “met”, you’ll probably be seeing a lot more of me on the Recipe for Success Instagram feed, and I hope to follow you on your #VegOut2018 adventures, to. Tag me @R4SFoundation so I can see what you’re up to and share your veggie adventures with our followers! I hope you have as much fun partaking in the #VegOut2018 challenge as I have.

Happy *belated New Year,
