    I've run into a slight problem. What I like to eat, and what my two kids, 2 yrs and 5 yrs will eat during the summer seem to be a bit different!! [​IMG] During the summer I like lite food, salads, fruit, cold pasta. The kids, who usually eat anything put in front of them are looking at me like I have totally lost it. Anyone have any ideas???

    Been there too. If you coax them into having a "picnic" lunch or supper they might come around quicker to different foods. My girls loved salads, cold pasta dishes, fruit trays with cheese and some type of sparkling juice. My 2 yr old boy - meat and potatoes but he is starting to come around and loves salad if he can dip the pieces in the dressing instead of having the salads dressed. Also nice sandwiches cut into shapes - like cookie cutter shapes. When my girls where little they got the shapes and we ate the rest of the straggly sandwhich peices LOL
