Children’s palates are as reliable as a sunny dry day in Seattle, right?
As a Mom to three boys, I have steadfast, three helpings per night eaters, and on the other end of the spectrum, that one child who eats one eighth of his dish, without protest.
From time to time I’ll enjoy sending a pic of a family favorite dinner on our social media sites.
One habit I have made in the past three years, is to offer more than one vegetable at each dinner, so that I have an alternative to the gravely dejected veggie of choice, and another habit is to avail both fresh, raw ingredients, as well as roasted, baked or sautéed veggies, for that texture particular child.
For now, have a look at the wild array of colorful veggies we choose from, for our weekly Tuesday Taco night. We have been successful with both plant-based and carnivore forward menus. Some ingredients that seem mixed-age welcomed, are corn, beans, rice, spinach for the adventurous, tri color peppers, tomatoes, hummus, diced chicken, white fish or grass fed beef, and tofu and dare we forget, cheese! Bon appétit and Om Shanti (peace & joy!)
