When my children have been avoiding fiber-rich foods, we get an abundance of tummy aches as their… uhhh… plumbing gets a little backed up.
Even though we are a whole foods family and the children eat a ton of fresh fruits and vegetables, our special treats were lacking in fiber. So, I have tried to find ways to boost the fiber content where they don’t expect it.
Cookies are an easy place to boost fiber. Just substitute up to half of your flour with whole wheat flour or finely ground oatmeal and switch nuts for oats.
