31 Tips (Helping our Kids Be Better Eaters)...for Each Day in July!

I'm starting a new series for the month of July, where I will post a tip each day - 31 of them, to be exact. I don't know about you, but things are busy in the summer. I always think I'll have more time to lay on a hammock somewhere and read a beach book, but alas, summer taxi/moonlighting as working mom seems to be more my M.O. Needless to say, I don't have time to read my favorite blogs right now, so I thought maybe you don't either? I hope a bite-sized daily mini-blog with an easy-to-try tip would be just what hits the spot for us this July! Subscribe or follow Petite Nutrition to come along for the ride...

1.) Give your kids a cookbook you love (with wonderful pictures in it), and have them mark the pages of recipes they would like to try. Including them in food preparation empowers them, and gives them ownership and motivation to try slightly less familiar dishes. When you make the dishes they selected, you can all try it together for the first time!
