Kale Chips: Our Toddler’s Favorite Snack

I know it might sound crazy, but one of Ingrid’s favorite snacks is Kale Chips. If you haven’t ever tried them before, they might sound gross to you. But I promise, they are surprisingly delicious. As a mom, feeding my kids healthy, well-balanced meals is something I strive to do. Kids can be especially picky, but exposing them to a variety of good food at an early age can make a HUGE difference. I started making kale chips at home when Ingrid was first able to eat foods like these, and she has gobbled them up every time! Scroll down for the EASY recipe…/>

What you need:

  • One bunch of kale (curly or flat, it doesn’t matter)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt (optional)
  • Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Next, wash and dry your kale.
  • Then, rip or cut it into bite-sized pieces.
  • In a small bowl, drizzle a bit of olive oil. Throw the kale chips into the bowl and massage them around a bit, making sure that each piece gets coated in oil.
  • Arrange your kale chips on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Sprinkle a tiny bit of salt over the chips.
  • Bake them for 8-10 minutes, or until crisp, then gobble them up!
