When so many holiday traditions center around cooking and eating with loved ones having a picky eater can feel like just another holiday stress.
I have spent years cajoling kids into “just one bite” of Thanksgiving turkey or “just a taste” of sweet potato pie. This year I’m eliminating this particular worry and creating a holiday meal my kids can enjoy just as much as I love green bean casserole!
Armed with a few tasty, healthy and kid-approved recipes I can enjoy the holidays knowing my kids are happy and fed – after all, we tend to center holiday meals around our own seasonal favorites, why not let our kids in on the fun?
