They get to experiment and be a part of the process. School is out and there is no peer pressure. We must keep in mind that children need calories and good fats because they are still growing. So other foods to consider are steamed veggies, quinoa, brown rice, avocado, olive oil and flax oil on a regular basis. Making a weekly meal plan can help ensure that you’re giving them variety.
