Adventures in Healthier Eating with 2 Kids and a Picky Husband

No! Not the Peppers!

Posted by 3 years ago 3 Comments


  • French Toast
  • Red Pepper Strips
  • 2 Cookies
  • Applesauce
  • Water
  • Snack: Nothing. He hasn’t been eating it so I just put a granola bar in his bag as a back up in case he’s hungry. Once it’s gone I’ll replace.

School Lunch Ideas

I pulled this together in 2 seconds the other day because I forgot to make lunch. We were having french toast for breakfast so I decided to just make extra. Unfortunately I couldn’t find his little dipping container so I decided to give him applesauce in the larger one. This way he could eat it and dip if he wanted to. His response, “Syrup is better.” lol Well der.

As for the peppers. Well, he’s always eaten peppers. ALWAYS. I was shocked to see them when I opened his lunch box.

    I love peppers in my lunch. Especially red, but yellow & orange are good too. I've just recently picked up cuties to add to lunches. They claim kids love them so I figured why not try them! Reply

    I see you packed those cookies Who Nu? Are they better, worse or equal to oreos? I've seen them advertised but have not tried them. They are being advertised as healthier than average cookies. Truth or myth? Reply

    I happened to have a coupon for them, I mean they have more vitamins than a regular cookie but they are still a cookie. Nothing real special. Tasty though, just like an oreo. Reply
