Sometimes I need to “trick” my family into eating healthy. Today I am sharing one way that I do that, and tomorrow I will be back to share even more.
MAKE FOOD FUN. Yes, there’s many other reasons for having a meal in a jar. But for my family, we like to make it a little more interesting than just eating a salad.
Enter Salad In a Jar!
I have found that just because it is in a small jar, and each child (or husband!) has their own individual salad makes them all so much more willing to eat it all. And you can layer so many fun colors and good-for-you veggies into one jar.

Ingredients:

  • Kraft Fresh Take {Rosemary & Roasted Garlic}
  • Frozen Chicken Breasts
  • Carrots {chopped}
  • Cucumber {chopped}
  • Avocado {chopped}
  • Mandarin Oranges
  • Craisins
  • Romaine Lettuce
  • Spinach
  • Salad Dressing

For this recipe I tried something a little different and made a YUMMY chicken before the salad. I used Kraft Fresh Take’s Rosemary & Roasted Garlic mix and baked my chicken.
Once my chicken was done I cubed it and set it aside with all the other pre-cut salad ingredients. Then I layered the salad. Did you know that if you layer it right, you can keep it in the fridge for a few days and nothing will get soggy or yucky!
First layer needs to be your salad dressing. I used about 1 tsp in the bottom of each jar. Next you will put things that wont soggify {yup, that’s a word now!} from being in the dressing. So you’ll put your veggies. For us it was our carrots and celery. Then we put our cubed up chicken topped with the avocado followed by oranges and craisins.

Between each layer I push it down so I can pack as much in as possible. Then fill the whole rest of the jar with romaine lettuce and spinach. Replace lid on jar.

Ok, now I did label each of our jars, because included were things like AVOCADO….YUCK! I can’t stand the taste and texture of avocado, and The Little Man is the same way with craisins, so we left a few items out of each salad.
But although we skipped some ingredients, each salad was extremely healthy and full of a great mixture of foods.

Have you tried the Kraft Fresh Take’s? You find them in with the cheese at your local store. They are amazing and come in a bunch of different flavors. And you don’t have to just use them for a chicken dinner…ya know, like I did above!
