Breakfast Ideas for Kids + Lunch they’ll Love!
Do your kids tend to be picky eaters? My girls have both gone through picky eating phases.
I’ve found a few simple tricks to help curb picky eating. One of them is elevating a simple recipe and making it more interesting!
I like to build on what they already like. My girls are big fans of peanut butter and jelly. They also love grilled cheese.
To help to encourage them to try new things, I created grilled peanut butter and banana sandwiches. The key was finding a recipe they were already comfortable with, and adding in some new ingredients!
