  • My Ds is a picky eater I don't cater to him but I also do not make foods I know he hates.

    Breakfast was Envirokidz organic Koala Coco cereal (its expensive so it's just for my children) with goat milk and a banana

    Morning snack was granola (organic from our health food store)

    Lunch was grilled cheese sandwich and grilled watermelon

    Afternoon snack was organic blueberry rice cakes with low sugar ice cream between them

    Dinner is going to be a marinated chicken cubes served on Italian bread with pasta salad.
