I have a little challenge at lunchtime – my daughter loathes peanut butter. Really and truly cannot stand it. She doesn’t like most nuts, in fact.
So there goes a classic kids’ lunch. It doesn’t help that my son would gladly live on peanut butter.
Today we came up with a compromise. She got a jelly sandwich, which she adores but I hate to make because they aren’t all that nutritious (although I do use wheat bread). But she also had to have some lunch meat. I buy the healthier kinds, not just bologna. She’s happy. I’m happy that she’s getting something healthy along with her sandwich.
The kids are also enjoying fresh tomatoes from the garden.
I’d love to hear how other parents handle lunchtime challenges. What do you like to serve your kids for lunch and how do you cope with difficult food preferences?
