Snacky Plates: July 2018


For anyone who cares, I’ve decided to chronicle my Snacky Plates. [See my Art of the Snacky Plate blog entry for an explanation of this phenomenon]. I’m doing this because (a) The Snacky Plate is one of the few certifiably successful parenting things I do. My kids love Snacky Plates and actually eat them up every time. Oddly, they eat healthiest this way. (b) I want to give back to the super helpful online community. I always need ideas from other people when I’m cooking. And I am forever indebted to all the blogesses and foodies on the inter-webs for their creativity and lessons. Even though this isn’t cooking, I want to share something that works. Hopefully it’ll give someone a new idea when it seems like you always feed your kids the same old thing.
