This week the topic is Kid-friendly Meals at Glutenfreeweek. I am very lucky that I don't have a picky child. He willingly eats fish, all sorts of vegetables and fruits, and is usually willing to try new things. It has helped to call foods by kid-friendly names. Instead of Broccoli for dinner, we say Broccoli Trees and he's totally into it. Making a happy face or a cool shape on the plate is always a winner too. The challenge in our family is that while children are growing and are supposed to gain weight, my husband and I aren't looking to. It's hard to find recipes that everyone can enjoy and are good for everyone. By making these recipes from scratch we can have classic kids meals that are gluten-free, decently healthy, and that the whole family can enjoy.

This week Glutenfreeweek is hosting the Gluten Free Menu Swap. Check back later to see who has joined the menu-swap this week.
