If you have kids and want them to eat leafy greens, then introducing them to herbs in interesting ways would be a good idea. You can pack more nutrition and taste into their evening snacks by sprinkling a few herbs like coriander, cucumber, basil and parsley.

There are many kid-friendly ways to involve herbs into daily food, such as adding some cilantro to guacamole can enhance the taste. Add some chopped herbs when you make toppings for pizza or omelet.
You may add mint to smoothies, and fresh herbs to salads, sandwiches and soups. Kids will appreciate the awesome taste and flavor, while moms can feel happy seeing their little ones eat all those nutritious food.
Other fresh herbs, such as basil, chives, mint, tarragon, cilantro and dill, have high amounts of vitamins, antioxidants and minerals, too. Surprising? Herbs have a solid reputation as garnishes and flavorings, but they are actually much more than that. I’d dare to label them a relative (or at least a neighbor) of kale.
