We all love a light, refreshing salad in the summer time, right? If you do then this article is for you. If not, we have rounded up five delicious salads that will turn you into a salad lover… which means this article is for you too!

Loving, or at least like vegetables is so important. If our children see us eating this way they are more likely to do so themselves. Lead by example! Sometimes we forget, but our food is our fuel, so we want to be fuelling our bodies with the best food possible. More importantly, we want our children to develop healthy eating habits while they are young, and to appreciate healthy foods. 

Get you kids involved in the salad making process. It’s great for them to learn basic kitchen skills plus have a connection to their food and what it is doing for their body. 

1. Cold Vegetable Mango Noodle Salad
