    Question – how would you recommend breaking your kids of the “processed food” addiction? My two kids, age 9 and 6, refuse to eat when I make good meals like roast and potatoes or homemade lasagna, which is usually five days a week (not bad for a mom who works 40+ hours a week). So of course I tell them if they don’t eat what I make, then they don’t get anything. That of course leads to extreme crabbiness and staying awake because they’re starving. My son has a heart defect and is skin and bone, so I feel so guilty, but honestly, I’m not going to just let them eat PBJ every night I make something GOOD! I rarely bring junk food into the house, and even then I try to make sure it’s organic chocolate or tortilla chips. Just wondering your thoughts . . .

      That is a tough one Mary. I can’t give you any professional advice, but our pediatrician always said that a child won’t starve himself. He will eventually eat something and if the only thing available is the leftovers from dinner the night before, he will gladly eat it.

      I would check with your doctor to see what he/she suggests since you have a child with a medical condition. I would also limit snacks before dinner to make sure that the kids are actually hungry when you serve the meal. Good for you for not bringing junk food into your house! :)

    I always forget about tostadas, and opt for tacos or rice bowls instead. Tostadas sound like a great alternative. Have a great week!
