Today I thought I would join in with Kelly over at Kelly's Korner for the Show Us Your Life which is "What Do You Feed Your Kids?" By the way her blog is definitely worth checking out if you haven't before!
What Do I Feed My Kids???
Neither one of my kids are very picky about what they eat, although Jaycelyn is becoming more picky. She eats breakfast really good and then sometimes at dinner she just doesn't really want anything. She'll eat a little bit and then plays with the rest. She just doesn't eat a lot, she's our skinny mini! Oh, and she would rather drink milk all day every day. Noah doesn't care what it is, he is so happy when it comes to food, but bless his heart, he's lactose intolerant and he can't have a lot of the things he loves like cheese!
Breakfast Usually Consists Of....
Oatmeal- usually Quaker Fruit & Cream
Pancakes or Waffles-usually with a banana or bacon
Eggs, Grits, Toast or cheese toast
Sausage and gravy biscuits

Fresh Fruit or Dole Fruit Cups- apples, bananas, grapes, oranges, peaches, etc...
Pin Wheels- spread cream cheese, diced black olives, ham, and shredded or sliced cheese, roll up really tight and cut into slices
