OK, so I did meal plans for two weeks in a row, and I tried to include things my kids have liked/eaten in the past, and I included my DD1 (the really picky one) in the planning process. She was all excited about a pasta salad we picked together, then when I made it she wouldn't touch it--I ended up making something else. Then I made turkey tacos, which she had loved two weeks earlier. She gave me a hard time about those too. Neither one will touch anything out of the crockpot--I have no idea why! I made baked sweet potato fries (OMG, so good, by the way)--no go. And so on...
I had the same problem the second week too. Here we are in the third week, and I'm totally off track. What am I doing wrong? Are they just so used to too much fast/convenience food that anything real is a bust right now? Is there some trick to meal planning for kids?
I need to use some ground turkey breast tonight, so I'm planning sloppy joes. I mean, what kid doesn't like sloppy joes, right? If this falls flat, I don't know what I'll do. I can't feed them noodles with butter and cream cheese and jelly every single day! Ugh. Any advice is SO welcome.
