Beet Chips

Baked beets is one of the easiest ways to give your kids the nutrition they need without them even knowing it. The beets' sweet, mild flavor is amplified after spending a few minutes in the oven with a drizzle of olive oil. They're healthy, and they taste better than potato chips.

Beet Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.

Beet Cooking Tip

Different vegetables have different cooking times – cook different types separately and then combine.
