The Country Crock Chronicle #veggieworld

This post is sponsored by Country Crock. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective, and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.

Trying to get kids to eat their vegetables can be trying for some – me included. I never thought it would be so difficult trying to convince the kids to eat their veggies and the importance of doing so. I keep trying and refuse to give up – eventually I figure I’ll just wear them down. So I can absolutely appreciate Country Crock and their special edition of The Country Crock Chronicle called A Very Veggie World. It includes 25 fun, step by step recipes that focus on making veggies more appealing to kids, along with great facts and suggestions to get the most out of each recipe. “Making foods, particularly veggies, look and taste delicious is an important element of “A Very Veggie World.” Clare Crespo’s clever designs will help entice families to consider serving up veggie recipes as part of their everyday meals. Keeping recipes simple and adding Country Crock® will ensure that veggies will taste delicious.”

Every recipe comes with a photograph so you know what the end result should look like, along with detailed instructions and most importantly, they all feature veggies, including the Bear Paws recipe – which makes 4 servings
