Have your kids' whines and tears won against your endless struggle to force them to finish the green stuff on their plates? We don't blame you for quitting chugga-chugga-choo-choo-ing peas into your child's mouth, but that doesn't excuse your kiddos from getting their daily dose of veggies. If you're tired of devising creative ways to win the battle, jot Farmwise's new All-In-One Chicken Veggie Nuggets&Tenders onto your grocery list.
The health-conscious brand uses only white meat chicken that's humanely raised cage-free and without antibiotics or hormones before spiking it with non-GMO broccoli, carrots, white beans, and potatoes, and breading it with a gluten-free coating. The result is a kid-friendly protein that's crunchy on the outside, juicy on the inside, and totally rivals the best-selling staple at McDonald's.
"For the ultimate in convenience, we decided to blend the veggies inside for all-in-one chicken and veggie nutrition. Chicken Veggie Nuggets and Tenders are a parent's dream—the great taste and texture of traditional Chicken Nuggets with veggie nutrition that every parent is searching for," Farmwise Co-Founder Cristina Peters said in a statement.

To get your kid to eat more wholesome veggies on the daily, try blending kale and spinach into a fruit smoothie and serve carrots and steamed broccoli with a clean ranch dressing.
