As a mom who wants to feed her kids food that they will not only like but that is also good for them, it has not always been easy. I have 4 very active children ages 8-17. We are the ultimate on the go family, band competitions, football games, basketball games, cheerleading, gymnastics. You name it, my kids jump for the opportunity.
My biggest worry hasn’t been being too busy, we have our break schedule along with the activities but the food they eat. We have more often found ourselves picking up a pizza because the kids don’t like the meals I would like them to eat. Now normally I would just say eat or don’t it’s your choice; but not with their activities.
Thanks to Natalie Slater and her book bake and destroy I have been able to conquer 3 parts of our
meal challenges. Breakfast, lunch and on the go snacks. As soon I received this book my kids had so many meals planned out for the up coming week. We started the day off with Whole Wheat Choco-coconut Donuts. They loved them! Next they each packed Chicago-Style Sammich for their lunch.
My children always want an after school snack. Their favorite has become Cujo Chow. I often find my children reading or doing their homework with this snack. I am happy that the snack they choose is not one loaded with preservatives and artificial ingredients.
I highly recommend this book for any family who wants their children to eat better and to learn how to make better choices for on the go snacks.
