Even though I want my kids to enjoy each meal I serve I can’t cater to each individual tastebud. I know Shae doesn’t like potatoes so she gets more veggies, Shaun doesn’t like red peppers so I try to fish them out if large enough in a dish but give him extra carrots. Sabreena eats almost anything actually so I can’t complain too much about her.

We often let them choose new foods at the grocery store and let them choose a meal during the week. This all ends up working out so that we are eating meals that we all enjoy. This week Shae and I were working on a new way to talk about our favorite meals. I got this Melissa and Doug Make-A-Meal Sticker Pad. It lets kids put together their own DREAM meal on one page. Shae did a breakfast, lunch and dinner. Pizza is a staple in this house. I knew that was going to end up on her plate. This one with the taco is my favorite though; there’s a good variety of veggies along with it.

  1. Cute…and a great idea to use it to talk about what a healthy meal looks like!

  2. If your kids had fun with this…you should check out (Kia) Today I Ate a Rainbow…My kids were into that big time a few years ago! I love how simple it is for kids and how it encourages them to eat well 🙂

  3. Love this link up and thanks for commenting on my blog! I added my Chobani Raspberry Scone Recipe 🙂 The kids helped cute the scones into shapes with cookie cutters! I think I linked up twice by mistake. Please remove one 🙂 Thank you!

  4. What a cute idea! I bought a laminator at Christmas and have been making placemats with letters and numbers on them and let my kids use a dry erase marker to practice. I love the idea of creating fun meal ideas! Maybe we will cut some food out of magazines and make plates they can fill with healthy choices 🙂

  5. We loooooove the M&D sticker pads! How cool to use it this way!

  6. Those sticker pads are AWESOME!! I’ve never seen (or heard) of them before, but my boys would love to create a dinner menu with them!

  7. I love EVERYTHING from Melissa & Doug. We have a ton of their stuff and adore it all!

  8. I have never seen these stickers before . . . what a great way for kids to show their parents what they like. Also leads to a good discussion, I would think. Going to pin this idea for later. I linked up something from January because it was just so much fun. 🙂

  9. Ahhh……I thought I had to log in; I didn’t know it was going to use that info for my link!!! Sorry I have never done a link up like this. lol I put the correct info in, but looks like you will have to delete my stupiness! Sorry about that! What a cute sticker set! I always fall in love with Melissa and Doug toys!

  10. Betty Baez says

    what a cute idea i love it!

  11. What a fun linky party! Have a great weekend!

  12. How cute! We have a felt food pyramid, and this is a way cooler idea for discussing what a healthy meal looks like.

  13. That looks like fun, my daughter would have a lot of fun with it!
