Did you check out this amazing Sneak Peak from the Surf & Turf e-course on How Food Impacts Our Mood? The first lesson was AWESOME. Ann Marie’s still accepting late-comers (this week only). Email me for a $20 off coupon!
Thankfully, I discovered the world of Real Food when my youngest was an infant. Translation: it’s pretty easy to get my kids to eat Real Food. They don’t put up a fight when I serve them salads, seafood, or liver. Oh sure, they still beg me to take them to McDonald’s or get them doughnuts from Krispy Kreme, but at least they’ll also eat what I cook. But what do you do when you started eating Real Food after your kids already developed a picky, junk-food loving palate?
I watched an absolutely hilarious video posted by Kelly the Kitchen Kop this morning, and it brought this question to the forefront of my mind.
First, watch the video. Kelly made it to serve as a brief promotional spot for her new Real Food For Rookies E-course. But she used her teenage son to film it, and his responses to their midnight trip to the grocery store had me laughing out loud.
You see, I regularly get emails from Readers asking me how to help their older kids appreciate Real Food. Since my situation is so different, I don’t have advice. What do you do when your teenage son would rather eat Fruit Loops than the eggs and bacon you cooked up?
So, rather than trying to sound like an expert when I really know nothing about the best way to respond, I thought I’d ask you, my Readers, for advice.
What would you do? What do you do? What works? What doesn’t? Let’s help each other out!

Also, these are some of the articles I’ve written on the topic of Real Food and kids over the years. Enjoy!
