What Kaylee Eats

Welcome to this week's edition of What I Ate Wednesday! Go link up at www.peasandcrayons.com :)


Usually it's all about me, but this week I decided to switch things up and do a WIAW Kaylee edition. For the most part, we always eat the same dinner (this mama isn't a short order cook!), but on the weekends, we all do our own thing for lunch time. And breakfast is always unpredictable!

Kaylee always wakes up earlier than I'd like to, and she's knows that's her time to get to sit and watch a movie. During the week, she's at school til 4:15, then we have homework and dinner and bath, and she usually doesn't get any TV time in the evenings. Breakfast is usually kind of snacky.

Don't judge! In that smoothie, there's lots of fresh fruit, milk and yogurt. The goldfish is a serving of whole grains, and those fruit leathers that she's holding is the ridiculously expensive all natural, fruit only healthy fruit leather.

This is a typical lunch for Kaylee. Lately she chooses to have sandwiches a lot, but sometimes she'll ask for mac&cheese or ravolis.
Carrots are the ONE vegetable that she eats without complaint or coercion. Needless to say, we keep lots of raw carrots in our house!

Like I said, I only make one dinner a night. So yes, my hubby and I aren't eating anything exotic or exciting, but that's ok with me. On days when I don't mind the "eat another bite" routine, Kaylee will have whatever vegetable we're having, but oftentimes I'll just peel her a carrot and save us all the trouble.
She's not a fan of potatoes unless they're mashed and absolutely drowned in gravy, so she only had to have one potato wedge. There's those carrots again.

Dillons had drumsticks on sale AND I had a coupon, so I got these as a special treat for Kaylee.
As a kid, my favorite part was the chocolatey coating on the outside. YUM!

What's your kid's favorite food? 

I just asked Kaylee what her favorite food is, and she said spaghetti and popcorn.

  4. Brendan LOVES spaghetti. It's such a mess though. And smoothies are pretty much the only way I can get him to eat any fruit other than bananas or applesauce. Sometimes I blend spinach up in it, too.

  5. I love her eats. I think I'd enjoy a sandwich more if it was in a fun shape!

    I should do a day of eats for Faith. I wonder if I could get pictures of all the pieces of carpet fuzz she eats?

  7. My favorite, I think, is pasta. And wow, she doesn't like potatoes? I'd give anything to NOT like carbs!

    My favorite part of those cones is the chocolate on the inside of the cone. Genius!

  15. This makes me miss eating as a kid! Life sure seemed simpler back then, didn't it (especially when someone else was putting the food on the table)?

    Also, this makes me want to have a smoothie!

  18. Whole grain breads, cereals and pastas have high amounts of thiamin.
    When our body p - H ( becomes more and more acidic it starts to set up defense mechanisms to keep the damaging acid from entering our vital organs.
    If you wish to get the highest possible concentration of antioxidants, pure cocoa beans,
    or cocoa supplements can be purchased for an affordable price.
