The perfect dinner for picky kids!

Do you have picky eaters in your household?

Always looking to balance out their meals?  Do they eat too many carbohydrates?  Not enough protein?  Too many fruits and not enough veggies?  Have a kid too skinny?  Or one who needs to cut back?

Well we had the perfect dinner last night for the picky eaters in our household:

Miso Soup: Full of soba noodles, re-hydrated mushrooms blended up so they cannot be detected in the soup (plus a few large chunks for the adults – which the kids remove), bok choy, nori, egg, green onions and chunks of tofu.

Plenty of protein.  Green veggies.  Carbs.  And a bowl is a meal!

They all loved it!  Especially considering the other meal option that we offered that night, and every night, to be exact.

We’re not a restaurant, right folks!

Option 2:

WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) with a side of; “You get what you get and you don’t get upset!”

So like I said… The soup was a big hit!

    I have just nominated you for an award. You might think these are naff in which case feel free to ignore it. Otherwise, go on and accept it 🙂

    I was just going to share the Southern version of your side for Option 2 – I’m a Yankee, and the first time I heard it, I cracked up.

    “You git what you git, and don’t have a fit.”

    Love the miso soup idea, gonna try that when the kids are all back!!

      Hey there LBD,

      Thanks for the comment. I love it! I’m going to use that expression on my kids probably tonight at dinner.

      The other difference would be, as a Canadian it would end with “eh?” and from the Southern US, “y’all”.
