Meal Plan – Week of 07/28/13-08/03/13

Good Morning all –

Here’s this week’s meal plan! Notice we have Friday night as “Kid’s Choice”. We have personally struggled with trying to get our 5 year old son to eat dinner (happily) with us. Granted, it is partially my fault. Poor kiddo started eating before our diets were forced to change. Some of his first foods included McDonald’s happy meals, hot dogs, chips, etc. I get a lot of kickback from other parents (and my own) about not letting him eat these things anymore. Instead of chips, he gets asparagus. Instead of regular ice cream, he gets homemade almond milk ice cream or frozen yogurt, cookies made with applesauce, etc. I now pay attention to what goes on his plate and in his body and I simply cannot allow him to eat some things anymore. Anyway – he gets one night (sometimes more) where he gets to pick exactly what he wants and I will recreate a “healthy” version. Typically it is “breakfast that looks like dinner”, which is basically just breakfast for dinner – and let’s face it, who doesn’t love that? Let your kids help with the planning – they will love it and hopefully have more incentive to eat better at meal time!  Have a lovely weekend!
