Monkey prefers most of his veggies raw. No problem...
Happy to add raw carrots and cucumbers to some ginger steak and rice. We've also been known to have him contribute to our meal by prepping and serving his favorite veggies cut and served in a bowl.
Pasta and cut raw carrots? Why not.
Meatloaf and a side of cut cucumbers? Sure
Liver and onions with a side of snap peas? Wait, no. I'd never eat liver and onions.
You get my drift. Think outside of the box. Invite your littles to join in food preparation any way they can. Offer options you know they will like. Be creative and don't stress it too much.
