How many hounds out there are trying to get their kids to try chowish food while fighting back against nuggets, mystery dogs, burgers and fries?
My little chowkid loves trying new food, but her little friends are having problems with seeing guacamole, hummus, homemade soups (eek! it's not Campbell's), chili, and other "weird" looking foods appear at lunch. Don't even get me started on dumplings, soy sauce chicken and rice, etc. Tempted to make some chicken feet and tripe just to harass them. Give me a recipe with with those and some sea cucumbers and I know what I'm doing tomorrow.
When we bought a school lunch one day, she told us about the green hotdogs, toaster pizza, and freezer mystery nuggets. She's still asking for school lunches because she wants to fit in.
I remember doing the same thing. I got delicious pot stickers and soups from mom, and all I wanted was bologna and pbj sandwiches (well, I still like those).
What are you doing to encourage your little chowkid?
