Making Fruits and Vegetables Simple, Fun, and Delicious!
For kids to develop healthy habits, it’s important for them to learn to love a variety of fruits and vegetables, in a variety of ways. Serving fruits or vegetables in different forms, textures, and temperatures will actually help children develop a mature palate, which is more accepting to a wider variety of new foods. Don’t hesitate to offer fruits and veggies fresh, frozen, dried, canned, juiced, pureed, blended, etc! Parents should be in the business of training their kids tastes and appetites for real food, rather than a love for a specific vegetable.
We love the focus on fruits and veggies for our kids as a way to teach them healthy habits. Not only does it encourage a positive relationship with food by focusing on what they should be eating, without sending negative food messages that often is accompanied by guilt and shame.
The only way to continue using the meal plans after your membership expires is by saving them to your hard drive or printing them. You can click the print button, and use a “print to pdf” feature to save the PDF to your computer. If you add recipes to your recipe box, your membership expires, and you rejoin at a future date, your recipe box will still have your recipes saved.
If you found the recipe browsing the member recipes, there will be an “add to recipe box” at the bottom, or in the right hand side bar. If you found a recipe via blog post, and there is no “add to recipe button”, this simply means we haven’t added it to our database yet. The ingredients need to be individually added in order to make the shopping list. This is most common with our blog posts that are older than our membership site. If you see a blog post you’d really like added to the database, please email me and we’ll get it entered right away (email@example.com)
At the very bottom of your meal plan, there is a red button that says: “Clear meal plan customizations”. This will return your meal plan to the way we wrote it.

Because our meal plan is used by such a wide variety of ages, at this time we do not have a set calorie amount. Caloric need varies so much with age and activity level that we provided nutrition information so that you can adjust according to personal need. The best way to adjust is by increasing number of servings. This allows more flexibility within the meal plan because you can increase servings from you favorite meals.
We tried to include everything possible for preparing all the meals. We are assuming you already have some staples like condiments, herbs, spices, baking supplies, etc. So you may not have to purchase as many of the items as are on the list. As you stick with us, the meal plans will use foods you may have already purchased in prior weeks!
