Kids need an average of 3-5 servings of vegetables a day.
This includes 1 cup raw, leafy greens.
If using fresh herbs for the dressing, double the amount – ½ tsp. each.
Consider serving dressing on the side and letting diners add according to their tastes. Plenty of kids like plain, raw veggies best so don’t force them to eat dressing.
