Are there certain kinds of food that you know for sure your kids will never turn down? Food that are healthy enough that you make sure that you have them for those “just in case” times when you’re worried that they might get picky on you?
Ours is corn. Both Josh and Zoë love corn –corn cob, corn kernels, creamed corn soup. Please ignore her frown here. That’s just Zoë practicing her “take me seriously” look.
Egg is another, although Josh loves this more than Zoë does. If we let him, Josh would be happy having eggs for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It doesn’t matter how it’s prepared –scrambled, sunny side up, soft-boiled, hard-boiled, steamed, poached, –he’ll gladly wolf it down.
Our go-to veggie is broccoli. Josh used to call them “trees.” Fruits? Pretty much any fruit, but especially apples, grapes, and blueberries. Zoë loves fruits, any kind –even durian! Josh’s favorite is pineapple. If I can’t get it fresh, we sometimes use canned pineapple chunks to make sweet and sour dishes and Josh would chow it down.
What are your go-to foods?
