Put an end to Food Fights with your kids + Giveaway

The ways that children differ in the way they eat these days is insane. I often go to school and have lunch with my sons and it’s very hard not to notice what other kids are pulling out of their lunch boxes. I’ve seen everything from carrots to candy bars. To each their own but there is no way I would send my sons to school with a candy bar in his lunch box. On occasion I will sneak a little something in there as a surprise. Maybe a “Kiss” or something as a treat. My son’s are not extremely picky eaters as a whole, but, they just are not big on vegetables. It’s not for my lack of trying.

As a kid I remember my parents forcing us to eat our vegetables. I think the purpose of that in the long run failed because today, I still don’t like most vegetables or seafood. I decided long before I even had kids that I wasn’t going to force them to eat things they didn’t like. However, I would make them try everything, and I do. You can’t force someone to like something no matter how many times you make them eat it.

Once a week I let the boys pick anywhere they want to go for dinner. They have a few favorite places which include a pizza buffet and a Chinese buffet. Now do I think a pizza buffet is good for them 7 days a week? Of course not but a few times a month is okay. I don’t let them eat until they are sick. They know how much they are allowed to have and even when they hit the dessert end, they know they are each only allowed to have one item. I also take weeks where we will go over what will be cooked for the week. I have found that giving them some input rather than telling them this is it, eat it or like it, has gone a long way.

3T Throwdown

My awesomely named friend Toni, from Food (Just Sayin’), has initiated a “Throwdown”! We will be making a Molted Lava Cake. I have never made anything like this before so it should prove to be interesting. You can follow out smack talk on Twitter using the hashtag #BakersSmack

Also joining in on the fun is Tanya from Shin-Dig-It. You are probably wondering how do you have a Throwdown when you can’t taste anything right? Since this is all for fun, it is an honestly policy. Obviously if you kill your recipe then you will wave the white flag. You can also have people try it in your home and give honest opinions. My sons would have no trouble telling me if something tasted like crap! lol

Look for our posts this Tuesday to see how everyone did!
