We’ve been sucked in to ordering off the Kids’ Menu a few times we’ve gone out only to have buckets of food left at the end of the meal after Z barely pokes at his Macaroni and Cheese, Chicken Fingers or Grilled Cheese. Of course what happens then? Well, WE clean his plate and end up eating waaay too much. One of the biggest traps new parents fall in is eating off their kids’ plates – easy way to gain 10 lbs.
For the first 3 or 4 years, your kids should easily be able to eat off your plate. Restaurants go overboard in portion sizing these days, and if you and your wife can cover off a couple of the kid’s faves you should be able to get the whole family fed.
Hint: one person orders rice, the other orders fries, or someone orders pasta. Easy peasy. (that’s Zacharie nibbling on a Cactus Club teri chicken bowl in the photo)
