Menu Plan Monday

We had a great week with our meal plan. We rearranged the order of the meals, but we actually made and ate everything on our menu.

I also really enjoyed having a plan for new foods to introduce to the kids. It worked very well. My daughter ate everything, but my son took more convincing.

As everyone may have expected, the brussel sprouts were the most challenging new food. We each took three to five bites at every meal (besides breakfast, I couldn't convince myself to eat them that early in the morning). By the end of the week, no one even questioned the full serving of brussel sprouts on their plate.

The new foods this week are going to focus more on new textures. My son has issues with textures in his food, and sandwiches are one of the things he will not eat because of the varying textures of bread and filling.

New "kid" foods:
  • broccoli
  • squash
  • sandwiches
Menu for this week:
  • Monday -- Beef & Broccoli.
  • Wednesday -- Meatloaf, roasted potatoes, veggies.
  • Thursday -- Chicken & Broccoli Pesto Ravioli.
  • Friday -- Chicken Enchiladas, veggies.
  • Saturday -- Chinese Chicken Cabbage Stirfry.
  • Sunday -- Leftovers.

Happy Monday!
