Kids can be finicky, especially when it comes to strong-tasting foods like garlic. But it’s important to introduce them to different tastes to help form a lifelong appreciation for healthy variety. There’s also many health benefits to eating garlic that should be considered.
Garlic facts: Garlic contains compounds that may boost immunity as well as antioxidants that control the damaging effects of free radicals. It may also prevent heart disease and fight some types of cancer. And check out all nutritional and health benefits of eggs.
An easy way to get garlic to pass anyone’s taste test:
Lightly run a peeled garlic clove over a slice of toasted bread. I got this from my Czech family (it’s an old Eastern European trick intended to keep kids resistant to colds and flu), so in my house we call it “Czech toast.”
Add a few more steps for a tasty take on garlic bread with a French toast twist: Dip the toast in a beaten egg, then give it a few turns in a pan with a bit of olive oil. You can even make a sandwich with sliced tomatoes, cucumbers and chopped parsley or cilantro.
