How to Get Kids to Eat Healthy

I feel pretty fortunate in that Grace is a relatively healthy eater with no big effort on our part (I mean, really, what 2 year old just asks for hummus as a snack). But I say that and realize I have been pretty intentional with our approach to food with her since day one, so I thought I’d share a few of the ways we’ve gotten our toddler to eat healthy in hopes that it helps some of you other mamas who are struggling.

And let me just put this disclaimer out there too (should the universe or my two year old be listening and decide to challenge me)…I know kids are picky, they go through phases, and their tastes change. I remember being told a time or two a story on myself when I refused to eat my veggies because I wasn’t in a “green or orange or yellow mood.” So I’m sharing what’s working for us now in hopes that it keeps working and sheds a little light on the subject of healthy eating for kids.

If you’ve been around here long, you know I love all things sweet. But what you may not know is that I also love all things breakfast. In fact, I can still remember Saturday mornings when my dad would get up before the rest of us and fix a big breakfast, and to this day, I still love when we’re visiting for the weekend and my dad makes one of his breakfasts. So what is my favorite? You may have already guessed…French toast!

It’s no secret around here that I love my sweets, so when I got the idea to try a new recipe with my toddler each week…I was ALL for it!
