What’s your go-to kids’ school lunch?

what's yours?
My kids get either cheese or Nutella

My go-to school lunch is one of two things. It’s either a plain cheese sandwich on a sandwich thin (those 100 calorie bread options) without any condiments. Or it’s Nutella. I know. I know. Nutella isn’t the best option. But one of my children doesn’t like peanut butter and one of them doesn’t like jelly. So, where does that leave me?! Confused, that’s where. I tried for a very long time to get them to eat cold cuts – but that didn’t work out. And don’t get me started on homemade soup. Sometimes it works out and sometimes it doesn’t. We just stopped fighting it.

How do you deal with picky eaters?

Dinner is dinner…

I have the pickiest eaters on the planet! I don’t really test their limits either. If I give them grilled chicken too many days in a row, they practically have a melt-down. I deal with it by making them understand that dinner is dinner… and if they don’t like it, then they don’t have to eat it. But mom is not cooking them up a second meal. I don’t understand moms who make everyone something special. I don’t have the capacity for that! My kids understand this rule and sometimes they choose to go to bed without dinner! And you know what? That’s OK!

Fruit is a big favorite…

Does your family go through ‘snack phases’ like mine does? When it’s hot, we always, ALWAYS have a freezer full of popsicles. Now that it’s a bit colder (yes, even here in southern California), we are loving air-popped popcorn, string cheese and sliced apples. Of course, anytime there’s a holiday like Valentine’s Day or Easter, there’s the candy that goes along with that, but mostly we ALL enjoy snacks we can grab and go. Fruit is a big favorite around here, we’re lucky we have access to a variety of fruit all year long. Whatever’s seasonal is always a hit.

I was a pasta girl…

There was a time when I would have told you I couldn’t live without Italian in my life. I was a pasta girl all the way! But over the past couple of years I’ve been weaning myself away from my addiction to pasta and grains and because of that, I choose Chinese. I know that if I step foot in an Italian restaurant, I would surely start running to everyone’s table stealing breadsticks and bowls of spaghetti.

I make a really good Bolognese sauce…

We had a dinner with about 15 men in the house, and I thought, what am I going to cook for 15 grown men? I made a combination of Bolognese sauce (and I make a really good Bolognese sauce, I must say that, and it’s super easy) and I made that with gluten-free pasta.
