1. Leafy Greens

Leafy greens refer, unsurprisingly, to the wide variety of vegetables that are green and leafy! It includes common greens like spinach as well as more niche vegetables like beet and mustard tops. Leafy greens are an incredibly important part of a balanced diet, as they contain many trace nutrients that are hard to find elsewhere.

Leafy greens can easily be incorporated into green juice and fruit smoothies, which is especially helpful for getting a picky child (or adult) eater to consume them. Many greens are also delicious when lightly sautéed with spices and olive oil.
