  • If your kids are big on pasta, switch to whole wheat....angel hair is easy to pass by them.

    We have all kinds of things for dinner. Tonight is home made pizza night. We do it every monday. The stipulation is we can't have the same toppings as last monday. We also have a salad to go with it. We have tried to go a bit healthier on the crust but haven';t found a good tasting alternate so we use Rhodes frozen bread dough, it works wonders! All of our toppings are low-fat or turkey meats.

  • Stir Fry Veggies (water chestnuts, bell pepper, onion, celery, snap peas broccoli, and cauliflower) with some beef and whole wheat tortillas. And some fresh fruit for dessert. :)

  • For breakfast my daughter used to be the same way she was very held back and only like her certain things, but i just kept slowly trying to introduce new things with the things she liked for instant. I would still give her some dry cereal but would make he a bowl of oatmeal to go with it, or i would make banana pancakes. He favorite meal is breakfast now!
