Delicious Eggplant Pizzas are a Tooth-Friendly Option
If you have kids, you already know, trying to get them to eat healthy can be a challenge. Of course, if they have braces, you have to be even more conscientious about finding tooth-friendly recipes that are both kid-friendly, nutritious, and not frowned upon by your orthodontist.
Many leading orthodontists recommend avoiding the following:
• Crunchy style chips
• Corn on the cob
• Pizza crust
Well, as a parent, you’re probably already wondering what you’re going to feed your child. These tend to be some of the most popular foods for pre-teens and teens. Can you imagine telling your child that pizza is off limits? Fortunately, with a few minor substitutions, you’ll be able to satisfy their desire for a yummy pizza without risking a disapproving look from the orthodontist.
A delicious eggplant pizza is not only tooth-friendly, but it is as delicious as it is nutritious. This is the type of pizza you can feel good about serving your kids whether they have braces or not. Whether you use it as a substitute for your traditional Friday night pizza party or you serve it as a quick weekday meal, even the fussiest kids will quickly become fans.
The low carb roasted eggplant base makes the perfect faux crust for your favorite pizza. Simply top the eggplant rounds with your choice of toppings or follow the recipe to get amazing results. If you think your kids are going to turn their noses up at the thought of making a substitution to their favorite takeout pizza, you might be surprised. Cook up these pizzas, let the kids help, and everyone will have a great time as well as a delicious meal.
