Load up some spring mix (salad) with toppings you DO like and use a light dressing. Ken’s steakhouse makes some really good light dressings.

Oven bake lean chicken, pork or fish. Have it with a side salad, steamed broccoli, tomato and cucubmer salad, collard greens, sauteed or steamed cabbage, a small serving of roasted red taters, cut up fruit, green beans, corn on the cob, an artichoke, mushrooms (stuffed with pesto or sun dried tomato?), steamed or raw carrots….

What are some healthy cheap family meals for picky children?

Question by Elizabeth C: What are some healthy cheap family meals for picky children?
My husband needs to eat better and get weight down (too much buying fat-food for lunch at work–we’re changing that). Our kids are small and skinny and picky eaters. Husband and I would like to eat better and are tired of the only foods our kids seem to like–pasta (ravioli, spaghetti, fettucine, and macaroni and cheese), PBJ sandwiches, pizza, and fruit. Don’t get me wrong, we like these things but our kids make it hard to eat anything else. My two daughters will eat meat, my son won’t unless it is a chicken nugget or he’s starving to death. My daughters will eat some veggies but the only one I’ve gotten my son to eat is corn. I need ideas on meals that are kid-friendly, healthy, and cheap to make.

Meal planning site for picky eaters?

Question by rybo510: Meal planning site for picky eaters?
Is there a good site for meal planning for a large family (7) of picky eaters? Does this site also have menu ideas? TIA

Best answer:

Answer by viv
It is called “at the dinner table with a piece of paper and a pencil”. Everyone has to write down what kind of food that they like and what they are going to make one day a week. Everyone can cook one day a week. NO one is allowed to make things that all kids hate like liver or stuffed peppers or eggplant or zucchini but everyone has to participate or go hungry.

there are tons of cookbooks to buy about 3 and 4 and 5 ingredient recipes – Rachel Ray has a magazine that has tasty recipes that should please everyone.

Just be thankful that you do have the food to eat. There are 2 billion people in the world who are in danger of not living because of lack of food and bad water.
