This month, Summer Miller is again and excited to share her household’s meal plans for December. Happy holidays, everybody!
I attempt to feed my household just a few dishes I do know they’ll like every week, mixed with just a few new objects I hope they’ll attempt. I’m an enormous believer in meals love by affiliation. So far, this strategy has labored for me.
I’ve additionally by no means let “no” cease me from serving a sure meal or vegetable for the second, third or thirtieth time. Sometimes children don’t like the feel of one thing or the temperature of the dish or another random factor recognized solely to them. It doesn’t imply they don’t just like the precise meals — or that they received’t begin to find it irresistible finally.
Blueberries have been one in every of my son’s first meals. He’d eaten them repeatedly till the age of 5, when instantly he determined he couldn’t stand the sight of them. Then, in the course of the summer time of his eightth 12 months, he cherished them once more and couldn’t get sufficient. These mysteries of childhood are usually not for me to know.
I attempt to not make an excessive amount of of a fuss about what they eat, and I don’t drive them to scrub their plates. I determine it’s my job to serve them wholesome meals, and it’s their job to determine in the event that they need to eat it.
If they refuse, I all the time have a lot of chopped up contemporary greens within the fridge. They are welcome to eat a bowl of cauliflower!
While it’s irritating when children (or adults) don’t eat what they’re served, I perceive that generally we simply aren’t within the temper for what’s in entrance of us. This week’s meal plan provides a little bit one thing for everybody, even the pickiest amongst us.
