Something Fishy Going On...

I don't know about all of you, but there are actual MANY foods my daughter loves that I would not eat. I learned early in my research of food and child rearing that often times when a child likes a food that parents don't, they usually don't have much access to it since kids tend to eat what their parents eat. I didn't want this to be something that happened in my home. I always wanted her to be able to enjoy a wide variety of foods, even if I didn't like them. I find lunch packing to be a fantastic way to provide her with things she likes even if I don't. This is one of those lunches. 

  • Tuna Salad - Tuna, mayo, celery, and carrot
  • Crackers
  • 1/2 a banana
  • 2 WhoKnew cookies
  • Carrots
If you weren't sure which item I hate, it's tuna. Not in any way or application. Monkey however is a fan so I like to keep some around for her. It works in a pinch, like this last minute-making lunch 30 minutes before we gotta go-lunch. 

Are there foods that you find disgusting or simply don't like that you still make for your children anyway? 

Happy Packing!! 


  1. It´s the other way around here. My kids hardly like anything compared to me :P

  2. Madelein I am definitely glad she's such an open eater. I don't know if I could handle if she was as picky as me! Lol. I didn't come to try most foods and veggies till I was an adult though. So I find i'm getting less picky since I am making her try so much and I want to be a good influence. :P

  3. My kid loves raw salmon sushi, capers, green olives stuffed with whole garlic, and salami. None of which I would EVER eat. EVER.

    1. Wow, what a brave eater! I've never even had a caper. Haha. Thanks for sharing.
