Tales From The Lunch Box – September 12, 2014


KFF Kids On The Move – Tales From The Lunch Box: (Sept.12)
Let’s talk about lunch today. I am all for trying new foods and encouraging my kiddos to do the same. I want them to have a palate that experiences and enjoys a variety of foods. When it comes to their lunches, I know my children, just like you know your children. In theory, loading their lunch box with endless vegetables probably makes you feel really good as a parent and yes, it looks great in the pics we post, right!? However, I consider myself to be a realist and I acknowledge that although all my children will eat their vegetables at home, 2 out 4 will eat any veggie or combo I place in their lunch, 1 would give me about a 50/50 chance and my final brilliant mind would simply disregard them. That’s my truth, simple as that. So what do I do to accommodate my concern and make sure they are eating the foods and the amounts needed to nourish their bodies…I make minor adjustments. Although I do provide raw veggie on the side occasionally, I make sure to load their lunches with a variety of fruit and I focus on including a variety of veggies in their sandwiches, wraps, pastas, pitas, etc. I learned that when they are prepared this way (cooked & raw), all my children eat their veggies and won’t bother with removing them. This works for me, I am not saying this is the golden rule or the only right way to incorporate veggies, this is simply a tip. Hope it helps!!
