I guess it’s confession time: My kids used to drink “smoothies” when they first got up in the morning. Why the quotes around smoothie? Because I’m such a slacker mom. Lately they are some flavored yogurt (organic, usually) and milk. I used to put baby food (fruit puree) or pureed tofu in them, but I got away from that a long time ago. For TBO, when he was a toddler, those smoothies were his primary food source and once he started eating solid food, I stopped making a meal of the smoothie.
Anyway, we stopped the morning smoothie a couple of weeks ago and they have finally gotten used to the idea of eating a breakfast that requires chewing. They have juice and a cereal bar (the fruit ones from Trader Joe’s) and I’m noticing that they eat more during the day as well. Which is why I’m posting. Now that they are eating more I need more ideas on meals and snacks.
What are your kids eating these days? What books or blogs do you like? I’m adding blogs to the sidebar and I love finding new cooking blogs 🙂
