How do you get your kids to eat what you serve?

Our rule is you eat as many bites as you are old.  So if you are 5, you need to eat 5 bites to be excused from the table.  I normally give them the number of bites on their plate at the start.  If they want more, that’s always welcome (I am looking at you my growing boy #eatingmeoutofhouseandhome).  
What are you eating these days that your kids are loving?


Until next time keep on keeping on with a simple purposeful life!
