It’s time again for the Munchkin Meals Linkup with Brittany over at A Healthy Slice of Life.
As you know by now, my kids eat the same things my husband and I eat. This doesn’t mean that everything goes over well with them, but it does mean that we don’t cook them food separate from what we eat and I may arrange theirs differently on the plate.
They typically like their foods separate, so while I may serve our dinner like this:
I’ll put their foods side-by-side instead of piled up like that.
I’ll skip the pictures of what we ate for dinner this month and instead show you what my kids have been eating for snack and lunch lately, including things that didn’t go over well.
First, some favorites.
Kale salad is always a win.
Avocado is also still a favorite around here.
You’ll notice that I like to serve them a bunch of little things for lunch and snacks, that way there’s variety and always a couple of things they like.
And now for a couple of things we’re going to have to offer a few (or many) more times before they enjoy them.

The important thing is that they both tried those things even though they didn’t end up liking them. I’ll be sure to offer them many more times and hopefully they’ll end up in the same category as avocado–something they didn’t used to like and is now one of their favorites.
What are your kids’ favorite healthy snacks?
What food did your kids take awhile to warm up to?
What is a food you didn’t like as a kid but now enjoy as an adult? Mushrooms for me.
