Nutritious, Kid-Approved Gluten-Free Meatballs

Spread the love

We all want to make sure our children are “eating the rainbow!”

Often kids will gravitate towards the same fruits and vegetables everyday, and are not as open to incorporating more of a variety. But this week, we had the opportunity to try Rawsome by Now Foods and it’s a game changer in this ongoing conversation with kids! Rawsome, a whole food meal, makes adding nutrients to our comfort foods convenient. One teaspoon serving is a source of 7 essential nutrients including vitamins, minerals and Omega-3 fatty acids, plus antioxidants from 10 different whole seeds, fruits and vegetables.

The best part is that it’s kid approved! We’ve added Rawsome to a variety of our meals this week, and they were an instant hit.
Rawsome can be added to:

  • dips
  • Meat dishes
  • Soups
  • Salads
  • Baked goods
  • Yoghurt
  • Cereal

Here, we’ve added Rawsome to our gluten-free meatballs recipe and it works perfectly. Thank you to @vistamagcanada for providing us the opportunity to learn about Rawsome.
