Feeding kids healthy food can be confusing and stressful. Do you ever find yourself saying…
I feel overwhelmed and hopeless when it comes to battling the Kid Food culture in this country.
I’m stuck in the challenge of cooking scratch-based home-cooked meals when kids’ palates are accustomed to chicken nuggets and pizza for lunch, donuts and oreos for birthday parties, and ice cream as an after school treat. Steamed broccoli and roast chicken just don’t have the same allure to my kids.
I feel like the deck is stacked against me when it comes to feeding my kids healthy food.
Feeding kids right is hard! So hard that I stopped trying with my boys and just give them what they want (mainly pasta with cheese) to try and keep the peace.
We are bombarded with clever marketing and quick fixes to get food on the table easily. Sadly the amount of sugary, unhealthy food (or food-like substances as I like to call them) that is constantly at the ready in our society is an at-times overwhelming force for parents.
Parents are sold kid food to solve a problem. Picky toddler and preschool appetites, convenience, and speed all make the Standard American Diet (SAD) appealing. This includes pizza, nachos, chicken nuggets, macaroni & cheese, gummy bears, chips, and more! Even school lunch programs are filled with carnival food, often coming directly from fast-food establishments.
But I know you want more for your kids! I know you want to get off the hampster wheel.
You want to be the parent with the neatly currated bento box lunches that include homemade crackers with cheese instead of a Lunchable®. You want your kids to be the ones happily eating cucumbers and peppers instead of veggie straws.
The jump from where you are to where you want to be seems too far.
Take heart! There is hope.
The first step is to transition from your kids’ favorite SAD fare to healthier versions made with whole foods.
As a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner I see so many parents at a standstill because they just don’t know where to start. So my gift to you is my book The Kids Menu! It contains simple, Real Food versions of just about every typical “kid food.”
Many of the recipes are staples in my own house. Even as an adult homemade chicken nuggets are still one of my favorites!
There is no need to give up on pizza, mac ‘n’ cheese, and fruit snacks just because you are trying to eat healthier.
I’m a busy mom of four. I can’t spend all day in the kitchen. So the recipes in The Kids Menu are simple. Plus there are simple swaps to make allergy-friendly versions of every recipe. This cookbook truly is for everyone!
