Based on the book Creepy Carrots!
by Aaron Renyolds
What do cheddar cheese and carrot have in common? They are both orange. Kids who are wary of vegetables will embrace this simple, crunchy salad. When coated in the dressing, it’s nearly impossible to tell the difference between the cheese and the vegetable.
I’m not a fan of hiding vegetables in food, instead, I like to show kids how vegetables change depending on their preparation. Maybe your little one won’t eat a whole “creepy carrot”, but when shredded like cheese, it takes on a whole new look. Carrots are packed full of good-for-you nutrients. The best part: they are naturally sweet, crunchy and orange — all elements that make them appealing to our littles.
