There's a food fight at my house every night. No, I don't mean slinging food across the counter at one another, I mean the fight to get my children to eat the food I cook. Please tell me I am not alone in this nightly dinner drama.
Why does it seem like all they will eat is hot dogs (Kosher, of course), chicken nuggets (veggie nuggets but shhhhh! don't tell them!) and grilled cheese?
Am I the only mom in America that prepares 2 meals a night? One homemade meal filled with the appropriately proportioned servings from each of the food groups (well, sort of). And a second when my children refuse to eat the first? I've heard, "they'll eat when they're hungry" so I toggle back and forth between only offering what I've prepared that night or making a second meal.
Tonight my husband and I ate meatloaf with a side of skillet cooked potatoes and onions. My children ate bread and peaches (and not even the good, wholesome bread, but those yummy Hawaiian rolls).
Help me out here, wise women of blogland. Any words of advice? encouragement? commiseration?
