As you know, if you’ve been reading this blog for very long, I’ve been working on making positive changes in my life. Some of these changes involve eating no sugar, less processed foods, and little carbs. I don’t feel deprived. I’m happy eating salads for lunch every day, and I feel much better when I eat this way. That’s not my problem.
My problem is the kids.
While I may eat a healthy salad, the kids’ lunches at our house are usually quick and simple… quesadillas, frozen pizza, ramen, chicken noodle soup, mac & cheese, corn dogs, chicken nuggets, sandwiches…
You see my dilemma. I am not feeding my kids with the same standard I am using for myself. I use processed, bad-for-you, quick foods to feed them because A) it’s easy, and B) it’s what they like. Bad mommy! Breakfast isn’t a whole lot better. Two of my kids eat cereal and the other eats boiled eggs. They’re not fans of oatmeal. Two of them will eat fruit smoothies if I make them.
So, I’m all ears! What healthy whole foods do you feed your children for lunch? Or if you don’t have children to feed, what might you feed them if you were in my position? I need ideas, people!
