Our Weekly Menu from a 4 year old

And now for our 4 year old, oh boy! We follow the guidelines of Trim Healthy Mama developed by Pearl Barrett and Serene Allison and we encourage you to check out their websitebooks and various social media platforms.  You’ve heard from our almost 9 year old and our 7 year old now it’s time for the youngest member.  Trying to get ideas out of our little boy was more challenging then expected.  For the most part he just wanted cheese sticks, sunbutter, noodles and hotdogs.  We had to show him pictures to jog some ideas.
