** Berries are great for volume. I prepare recipes with blueberries & print it. Then recalculate the same meal but with strawberries. Redo with raspberries, etc. Kids love the variety. I think the prettiest meal is the Vege meal. Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the busiest for us. I'm driving kids to and from piano lessons, baseball, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts and an easy throw together meal for the car is always the Peanut Butter/Oil/Berry combo.
** I often throw in a very small pinch of Unsweetened Chocolate and some Bickford Flavorings Chocolate to make "Chocolate Milk." Sometimes I heat it a little for "hot chocolate" as well.
**DIET BEGINNERS: Keep meals simple and "clean." By "clean" I mean without sugar substitutes for a while. Avoid the aspartame or other sugar substitutes. That way, if your child has a breakthrough seizure, you won't be searching through food sensitivities. We've had some breakthroughs occasionally and I've wondered if it was from maltodextrin. Some children are THAT sensitive. We keep it all "clean" now. One less thing to deal with and worry about.
