  • Nope... neither of my kids like it... they are 4 & 7. But that's OK b/c its full of nitrates and sodium, so they don't really need it any way.

  • I choose not to use lunch meats because of the nasty chemicals and preservatives, etc. I bought a meat slicer and I just roast or grill chicken breasts, turkey, ham and then slice it like deli meat and use that for sandwiches. But after eating that way at home, they think lunch meat is disgusting when it is offered elsewhere. "It doesn't taste right."

  • Yes. He eats ham and turkey. I don't know how I got him to eat it, he just does lol. I don't think it's so bad if kids don't eat it though. There are healthier options out there.

  • We roll it up and put cheese in the middle like a sun and call it mr/mrs sunshine we alternate ham and turkey slices and cut them in half after rolling them up. We also give the option of mayo or musturd for dipping.
