    Hi there – just found your blog and loving it. Your recipes are great – I’m curious, do your kids eats most of them? I’m a single mom, and I find myself always cooking two different meals. One for me, and one for my 8 year old picky-eating daughter.

      Thank you so much Alicia! It is certainly a struggle, and differs with each child. We seem to go through seasons of being more consistent, then less. When we are consistent, our kids do better with eating what we give them. Our oldest (6) is at the point where he knows he is expected to eat everything on his plate and does so. We are getting there with our four-year-old, but he sometimes sits at the table for a few hours (seriously…) before finishing. But we did that for a while with our oldest, and it worked. Now he enjoys some vegetables. I do make separate meals often, but more so because of food allergies. Our middle guy cannot have egg or dairy, so his food is often different from ours. We do what we can 🙂 And on days that I feel they are not getting enough of the good stuff, I throw some carrots and spinach into a fruit smoothie and they down that! I hope that helps!
