You may have already caught onto this, but I try to plan my menus so that we use up most/all of what I buy each week. For example, if we have bagels for breakfast, we're having pizza bagels for lunch one day, and the leftover chili from supper one night will be used for chili dog casserole another night. I try to keep the menu as kid friendly as I can while still keeping it somewhat healthy. I use low-fat cheese, turkey hot dogs, whole wheat tortillas and pasta, etc. I also have a rule that veggies/fruit must be finished if you want seconds/dessert (which is rare anyway). I don't force vegetables but I do try to make sure I'm incorporating what Mackenzie likes - we don't eat a lot of corn because she is not a fan of it, but she loves carrots, green beans and broccoli. I do keep a stock of healthy snacks and the occasional treat as well. If you have any questions, feel free to leave them in the comments section!
