Is there a picky eater in your house who needs to try eating some fermented foods? Here are 20 kid-friendly fermented recipes that are packed with probiotics and delicious. Whether you’re looking for salty or sweet recipes, there is bound to be something that will work for even the pickiest eaters!
1. Fermented Beverages
2. Dairy Ferments
Kids love dairy products, so why not use that love to get some probiotics into their diet? Yogurt is the usual go-to for probiotics, but why not try milk kefir or cultured buttermilk? Sour cream and cream cheese are also probiotic and delicious.
3. Fermented Vegetables
Fermented vegetables can be a great way to get probiotics into a kid that loves salt. Try sauerkraut, fermented pickles, or fermented vegetable sticks. If your picky eater turns their nose up at a fermented carrot stick, then try making a few fermented condiments. I recommend my sweet zucchini relish, my salty cucumber relish, fermented salsa and fermented guacamole.
4. Probiotic Treats
If you picky eater has a sweet tooth, then probiotic treats might be the way to go! Try making cultured ice cream, probiotic cheesecake or a smoothie popsicle. We love peanut-butter and banana pudding for a sugar-free sweet treat. And cream cheese frosting is perfect with everything.
