Picky Eater Mommies Unite With Healthy Meal Plans!

Something happened when my daughter turned 7. All of the healthy, wonderful foods she had been eating since baby-hood have all but disappeared from her vocabulary. Oh, unless she follows the word with "ewww."

I mean, this kid was eating broccoli, spinach, zucchini, lasagna, steak, burgers, salads, etc. on a regular basis. I honestly don't think her tastes have changed that drastically (although perhaps they have). I think she thinks it's "uncool" to eat certain foods.

It got to the point where I just couldn't make her happy with what I was putting on the table (and I cook nearly seven nights a week!) My husband and I were always so proud of our kids because their eating repertoire consisted of more than chicken nuggets and macaroni and cheese.

Enter the world of Healthy Meal Plans. Now, I plan every meal for every day. I do it mainly because I'm concerned that she won't be getting the balanced nutrition that she needs if I don't. I also do it because it saves me a lot of grey hair, stress and headaches when mealtime rolls around.

I do alot of my Healthy Meal Planning myself, but I also use the information in magazines, on the Internet and on various services to help me stay on track and keep a variety in my Healthy Meal Plans.

I like keeping diaries so I thought I'd chronicle how I go about developing my Healthy Meal Plans and their success rate.

I'm trying to rid the world (or at least my house) of picky eaters forever...on meal at a time!
