I am a stay-at-home mum with two small, active children. They are very picky eaters. My husband and I had a difficult time with this because we love all types of food. The dietitians introduced us to Ellyn Satter's R.D. philosophy on children and eating, The parent is responsible for what, when and where. The child is responsible for how much and whether. Many of the principles are in contrast to everything we were raised with, but it works! I like to make suppers from scratch. This way I know what is in them, I can replicate the recipe at any time, and I can edit it too. We like variety at dinner time and cooking allows that. I do a lot of baking because both my children and myself have a sweet tooth. I like to bake late at night, when the house is quiet, or with my children.
