Get Your Kids Involved! Weekly Meal Plan: 5/11/15 - 5/17/15

Get Your Kids Involved!

Do you struggle with picky eaters? 

We are NOT perfect in this household, either.  But, I work towards progress, not perfection -- in all areas of our health.

My cuties.  :-)
I AM happy to say that my kids will eat chicken, fish, beef, and shrimp.  They eat quite a few vegetables.  They have started to try more spicy foods (especially my son).  They LOVE couscous.  We are still working on quinoa.  LOL.  BUT, I must say that when my children are involved in the planning process, they are more likely to eat what is prepared.

Try asking your children what foods they would like to eat during the week. Get them involved in the planning process.  We all know that when we have more control over our choices, things tend to go a little easier.

Now, I’m not suggesting you give your kids executive control over grocery shopping habits and meal planning.  But it is kind of like you’re teaching them how to ride a bike without training wheels:

Practice.  Exposure.  Repeat.

And, maybe -- just maybe --  they'll slowly start letting go of the iron grip on the back of the seat.

21 Day Fix Meal Plan

So, here is our plan for the week ahead!
