I just want to reiterated journeymom's suggestion of the book, Bread and Jam for Frances, it was one of my childhood favorites.
Jania, I found a very healthy way to make french fries, and you can stick the fish sticks
in with them, as they take the same amount of time.
Wash one potato for each person eating, plus one.
Slice in half, then each half in fourths (or fifths), about 1/2 inch thick,
Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray (non fat), or use olive oil (good fat).
Arrange on the baking sheet. Salt them, or use Old Bay. Spray them.
Bake in a 400*F oven for 20 minutes.
You can turn them 1/2 way if you want the browning on both sides, but you don't have to.
My kids love them. But one other thing, your babe is only a year. Don't expect a varied diet with a child this young. Four or five staples in her diet are enough. Scrambled eggs, yoghurt, applesauce, avacado, rice, peas...these were about all I gave my kids at that age.
I am so impressed with everyone's attitudes toward this issue. We have such problems with eating disorders in our culture, and I was one who succumbed to anorexia. Food is meant to nourish us, we should eat it and honor it, not gobble and covet it.
Irishmommy, it sounds like your ds has enough of a varied diet to me. Put THAT list up on the fridge, and tell her that is what is available. Set mealtimes and snack times every few hours, but stick to them, often my kids will not want anything but a glass of water. I am not so good about remembering snacks on hectic days, but they always remind me if they need something.
Oh, and my ds1 is 8yo, about 4ft tall, and weighs 45lbs
The other three follow suit...
