5 Reasons I Won't Make "Kid Food" for Dinner

This isn't meant to be some grand manifesto. I really wrestled with how to make food appealing without making kid food while I was working at the daycare last summer. During these first weeks of the MyPlate on My Budget project, it has bubbled up in my mind again. We all take a different approach to teaching our children and encouraging to them to make healthy food choices. This just happens to be mine. What is yours?
If you would like to read a great book on this subject, I highly recommend French Kids Eat Everything by Karen Le Billon. I picked up this book expecting to read all about her kids. What I found was a story of a mother who had to reframe her own ideas about food before she could begin to teach her children. There are great ideas for introducing new foods to even very young children. Don't be surprised if you find your own tastes expanding right along with your children -- she did. The book is an easy and entertaining read. Bonus: It is set in a tiny village in France so you get to do a little arm chair traveling too!
