Easy Kid Friendly Turkey Meatballs


I try to make clean eating fun for my kids. I have two complete opposites and both are picky eaters. One thing I’ve started to do is garden with my kids . I thought it might be a good way for my daughter to see vegetables grow right in front of her eyes. Its given her a new appreciation for nature itself too. Not to mention, we all just really enjoy being outside in our backyard. My son enjoys digging his toys in the dirt and that’s ok too. We have to let them be kids right. I’ve found a way to make turkey meatballs and my kids will eat them . I always switch up the veggies I mix inside depending on what vegetables I have on hand. Here is what I used

You will need:IMG_6055

  • Ground Turkey
  • 1 egg
  • spinach
  • shredded carrots
  • garlic
  • Himalayan salt
  • pepper
  • All purpose seasoning

whole wheat OR regular pank crumbs

Put the ground turkey in a mixing bowl. Chop up the spinach is really thin small pieces, chop up the shredded carrots in really small pieces and add to mixing bowl. Crack an egg over the ingredients and add seasonings. I never measure and I need to start to! Add ahout 1/2 a cup of panko crubs and mush together with your hands. I always have my daughter do this with her clean hands. She thinks its hilarious and fun. Both of us roll the mixture into balls and add in the oven in a baking dish.  Sometimes I will add low sodium chicken broth to the very bottom of the baking dish to keep the meatballs moist. That is a personal preference.
