Thanks so much for the article, I just loved reading it! As I mentioned in another post, I don't have kids of my own right now, but I could forsee this happening within the next 5-10 years. I"m already starting to make some of the mental changes for parenthood.

maybe you haven't realized that once the kids eat, the food will be cold for sure, so I opt of fresh and raw food instead...

Preparing kids lunch is so tedious sometimes you just find yourself lost without new ideas to change a little the variety and then you have to ask ?Is this really healthy for my child??, the most probable thing is that it isn?t as healthy as you expect, so having these recipes in handy is something very very useful.
