Chow Time

I have posted this enough of my facebook, that I feel bad asking for ideas again....but I'm back in the same boat as I was a month or so again.

I'm out of breakfast/lunch ideas for Kinley.

Since I have a week "off" from school, I want to make some meals for her and freeze them for easier planning later.

She's becoming a picky eater and that is the one thing that we did not want.  This is what she eats now:

Breakfast:
Scrambled Eggs with cheese
Fruit oatmeal
Yogurt
Peanut Butter toast (that is hit and miss)
Mini Muffins
Cheerios
Trix

Lunch:
Ravioli
Chicken Nuggets
French Fries
Hot dog (hit and miss)
Hamburger Helper (made with turkey)
Stroganoff
Chicken Noodle casserole
Chicken and Rice
Noodles with sauce (those Lipton bag things)

Vegetables:
Green beans
Peas
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Carrots (sometimes)
Mashed Potatoes
Sweet potatoes

Snacks:
Goldfish
Graham crackers
Club crackers
Ritz
Puff corn
Cheese
Animal Crackers

Fruits:
(I've yet to find one that she doesn't like, but our these are the norms in our house)
Banana
Kiwi
Mandarins
Grapes
Mango

What she used to eat but won't touch today:
Grilled Cheese
Toast

So help me....what can I add to her diet?  I know that I'm not being healthy enough with her meal planning and I want to be better.  We're also going to introduce whole milk to her this weekend.  In hopes that we're at the end of our nursing and ready to go to real milk.  We've let her taste milk before and it's not gone well....so this probably won't be a big hit.  But we're going to try.

Leave me a comment if you have some ideas for me to try!

I just started letting Joanna pick her own breakfast and lunch. I made magnets with her choices and let her put them on the menu. Some things we included as options are waffles, mini pancakes, scrambled eggs, pb&j toast, and cinnamon toast for breakfast, noodles, spaghettios, ham sandwich, pb&j, grilled cheese, chicken nuggets, corn dogs, and mac & cheese. I try to make sure she has fruit or veggies to go with lunch and to snack on. Honestly, I think your list looks pretty good. I think the key is just making sure there are some fruits and veggies in there, not just carbs.

Raegan is super picky as well. Kinley eats a lot more than her. But I buy frozen pancakes and french toast sticks and she likes them.
