Mr 25 has started hand making Master 4.5's fav foods.. Plus a few newbies.
For the past few months Master 4.5 has been a shocking eater. We've tryed so many things to make him eat right. But 80% of the time he ends up gagging and goes to bed. But it makes me feel miserable sending him to bed on an empty stomach, and I'm not going to give in to letting him simply have a sandwich after Ive cooked a perfectly good meal. Yesterday was breaking point. He would stress how hungry is was, to the point he would hold his stomach and groan. So i would make him a meal and he would eat 3-4 mouthfuls and say he was full. He begged me for sausages for dinner and as my facebook friends know, he barley got through ONE then started gagging that he didn't want anymore. I was at my wits end!
Today Mr 25 went and stocked up on chicken breast and crumbed it to make what looks like nuggets.
Tested by 4.5 and .14 ... We have a winner! So for approx $6.00 probably even less we got about 50+ REAL chicken breast nuggets!
Now Mr 25 is on a mission.. Hes been back down to the supermarket and butcher to buy chicken mince, beef mince and a ton of veggies to make crumbed skinless sausages, mince meat balls and sausage rolls all packed full of veggies like Carrot, Onion, Zucchini, Spinach and what ever else he can jam pack in it! And is hard at work chopping and grating (AND CRYING! Damn onion...) in the kitchen making more meals.
Were going to try the chicken meat balls in a plain tomato spaghetti sauce with pasta tomorrow night and see how that goes!
Master 4.5's eating has been a HUGE concern of mine for a long long time now. And with me having this baby in less then 2 weeks, what he would eat while I'm in hospital worried me. But now our back freezer will be loaded with healthy dinners and my mind is at ease.
If ANY one has any stress free- basic- healthy make at home child friendly recipes, we are ALL ears!
Oh, and Thanks Mr 25. xx
Chicken breast cut in to nugget sized pieces.. Dipped in flour, egg and bread crumbs.
We then bagged them up in to 6 and froze them.
I really didn't want to shallow fry them, so we oven baked them on our chip tray!
