But really, we aren't so inventive and "organic" every single moment of every single day. There are plenty of days when we're in a rush to get lunch on the table, are out of my first choices for lunch items, or are just plain too tired to create something fabulous.
Regardless of the fare, I stumbled upon a guaranteed way to get my kids to try more new foods and eat more veggies: I make faces out of them. For whatever reason, my boys think it is hilariously funny to eat the moustache on a clown or beard on an elephant, no matter what it's made of. And I'm thrilled. Success!!
So. What have we been eating lately? Have a look for yourself....
whole wheat banana muffins, strawberry, and Cheerios
grilled cheese sandwich, carrot slices, raisins, and cantaloupe
bean/cheese/spinach quesadilla, turkey/ham, carrots, raspberries, cantaloupe, and apple slices
whole wheat banana muffins, Cheerios, and cantaloupe
turkey, apples, cucumber, strawberries, and string cheese
(This one's my fave so far...)
So...what's on your plate??
