I can’t wait to try some of these myself 🙂

There are so many yummy and healthy recipes you can try with your kids! My biggest tip is to get your kids involved in the shopping and baking/cooking. They are more likely to eat something if they can help out in the kitchen from start to finish. Make it a goal to try something new 2 times a month. Over time you will have some great recipes to use that will please your whole family 🙂

    I have never understood how people say that their kids won’t eat. Weird. My kids were never like that, they love food!! I started when they were young, showing them that eating healthy and eating only when you are hungry is important, they learned early and it stuck with them.

    You can see what my kids typical lunch consisted of when they were going to charter school here…

    We homeschool now, so they make their own meals whenever they get hungry.

    My son makes most of our family meals and has become our little family chef for the past 4 years. He asks for things like cookbooks and fryers and pasta makers for his birthday, LOL (btw, he is almost 12)
