How can you have your kids eat enough food and finish their vegetables? This is a question that most parents are asking for the longest time. Let’s face it, kids are picky eaters; they will choose fried food over healthy ones and often avoid vegetables. Barbecue Pork Chop with Mixed veggies might be the answer that you are looking for.
When my children were young, all they want is fried chicken, hotdogs, spaghetti, and French fries. Do your kids have the same preference too? It is to have them finish their vegetables; most of the time, they leave the veggies untouched. Throughout the years, I learned from observation that kids prefer food that looks attractive and colorful. Yes, they want fried food, but grilled food can do as long as it is sweet and flavorful. This is where this BBQ pork chop with mixed veggies comes in.
Serving lean Barbecue pork chop with a variety of colorful vegetables can increase the appetite of your kids. It also has less fat compared to fried chicken (as long as you do not include pork fat). This can be served with white or brown rice.
There are many commercialized BBQ sauces in the market. It will be better if you will use the sweeter blend like the hickory and brown sugar BBQ sauce that I used.
