It is so easy to get into cooking and eating the same things over and over again, especially when we are busy and don’t want to do meal planning. Food ruts can make eating feel like a chore and can actually make our children dread eating because they are tired of the repetition.
On today’s show, I want to talk about why it is so important to break free of food ruts and repetitive meals so you can be more involved and interested in what you’re eating. I have some easy tips to share so you can rotate in new foods and make eating a more positive part of your family’s routine.
Tune in to learn how you can change your eating routines to keep your children healthier and foster a better relationship with food!
