Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

He Left the Candy? Wah?

Posted by 4 years ago 6 Comments


  • Leftover baked ham chunks with a side of Triscuit Thins
  • 3 tri-color mini-peppers (They were on sale!)
  • Orange segments
  • Handful of Skittles leftover from Christmas candy
  • Water

What Came Home?

School Lunch Ideas

I can hardly believe it! I told him before school that if he ate the Skittles first the orange would taste bad. This has happened to him (eating something sweet that changes the way something else tastes) so he knew what I meant. When he came home he said, “I didn’t finish the candy.”

“Why not?”

“You said it would make the orange taste bad so I ate that first and then I didn’t want them anymore.”

Score 1 for Mommy! :)
