Want to put an end to your kid’s picky palate?
Time to show them the deliciousness of honey Dijon mustard
Using Dijon mustard instead of higher calorie culprits from the condiment carousel can have health benefits for the whole family. Recognized for its helpfulness with digestion and metabolizing foods, it’s little wonder nutritionists include mustard as the only condiment allowed in most diets.
Got a picky eater at home? Odds are their eating preferences include sugary condiments and sauces which are often paired with fatty and not-so-nutritionally packed foods. And they’re not alone: research shows that only two out of five Canadian children eat their “seven a day.” With its delicate balance of tangy Dijon and sweet blossom honey, Maille’s award-winning honey Dijon can help make their introduction to different foods more fun, and ease the transition to a higher consumption of veggies and lean protein. Used on its own or in healthy dips and sauces, honey Dijon adds a little bit of sweetness to your child’s snacks, lunch, dinner and even desserts!
But don’t forget – what’s often great for kids is also great for adults trying to adopt better eating habits. Adding only a few spoonful’s of Maille Honey Dijon while cooking and preparing marinades or glazes, can amp up the flavour in a variety of recipes. Because Dijon mustard is thick, it also acts as an emulsifier which allows you to cook with lighter ingredients such as greek yoghurt, in lieu of high-fat ingredients such as butter or cream, without compromising on taste. So encourage the whole family to consume more veggies by serving them in different ways, and dress them up with Maille’s Honey Dijon to prove how tasty veggies can be! After all, we are more likely to eat more vegetables when we actually enjoy them.
