Trying to make kid-friendly meals is one of the toughest challenges I face as a mother. Well, that’s not entirely true; sleep deprivation definitely takes the cake in regards to parenting challenges. However, making three meals a day and preparing snacks takes a lot of time! Prior to having a child, I would often just eat a small salad or even a bowl of popcorn for dinner. I ate pretty healthy (popcorn is healthy, right?), but I never put much thought into meal preparation.
My toddler, who once ate anything I put in front of him, has become quite a picky eater. My husband has always been a picky eater, but at least he’s more open to trying new things recently. So these days I spend a lot of time thinking about food and trying to get creative.
One thing I can typically get everyone to eat is beans and rice. I have a great black bean recipe if you want to try it, but my palate really prefers to switch things up. Today I tried out a new recipe and it was a hit with the whole family. To make this a toddler-friendly meal, simply cut up the avocado. I hope you love it!Read More
