It’s Spring Break week here in Brevard County Florida…
The girls and I made a #HealthyMeetHappy test recipe today for dinner at the request of one of our children.
The handpicked menu included a family favorite “Brinner” also known as Breakfast at Dinner alongside a dietitian inspired test recipe for Coconut Flour Crepes that I’ve been wanting to try for a while now.
The Brinner Menu included the following:
Applewood Smoked Bacon
Fresh Watermelon Cubes
Fresh Mixed Greens Salad
and the test recipe Coconut Flour Crepes with a Strawberry & Honey Yogurt Creme
What was the family’s response you ask?? Our youngest giggled joyously ” this is the best dinner ever”!
Our middle child beamed with delight as she had successfully assisted in the kitchen and was now enjoying the fruits of her efforts…
Big Sister eagerly accepted the Coconut Flour Crepes and filled it with her own hand picked ingredients. Not sure what to do with it, she kept it dry and tried eating it like a taco. After a few bites, she decided it wasn’t for her and went back to her staple preference for Brinner. The dietitian mom in me was proud of the kiddos for their willingness to try something new with zeal and excitement. Another #HealthyMeetHappy success story for the blog posts…
Everyone enjoyed a delicious Brinner meal, another test recipe on the books ( not a personal favorite but) with a bit of recipe re-creation… may just become a family Winner?!
What’s your favorite family friendly dinner meal that the kids love to help out in the kitchen with?
“Studies and experience shows that kids are more likely to engage in new foods when they’ve helped create the meal. Even a few stirs or gentle pats can help with exposing kids to new #HealthyMeetHappy foods that can become future favorites that last a lifetime!” ~Angela Gallagher, Registered and Licensed Dietitian, Nutritionist
Have a #HealthyMeetHappy Spring Break!
