My kids were tired of my dinners and I wanted them to be excited about healthy eating. Making a plan together was the remedy for the food rut! Here's what we did to put the meal together: 

  • we looked up recipes on Pinterest 
  • they crafted a menu 
  • we shopped for the ingredients
  • they helped with prep and cooking
  • they served the family

Everyone left their plates clean and we all walked away happy with the bonding start to finish!
