I am so tired of making meals for my kids that they won’t eat. My kids routinely refuse the lunch I make them. That means the meal ends with them eating very little, usually just the fruit and vegetables on their plate. I put their leftover lunch in the fridge and they have it for dinner. The grumble, but they eat it (for the record, I’m a good cook, I just don’t allow my kids to eat chicken nuggets or mac and cheese every day).
After meal after meal of complaints I threw up my hands in frustration and created a meal I could live with serving and they would actually eat. I took a loaf of take and bake bread, put meats and cheeses that I know they like on it. I added lettuce, tomato, mustard, and mayo – all things they like. I cut slices and they ate it happily.
I called it at Family Sandwich and they raved about it for days. I’m quite proud of reframing a party sub as a family meal.
Please share your most frustrating story about what your kids wouldn’t eat with me. I want to feel better about my picky little ones.
