This short piece by Emily Franklin, author of “Too Many Cooks: 4 Kids, 1 Mom and 102 New Recipes” which aired on NPR’s The Splendid Table really, really made me smile. If you happen to dine with a picky eater on a regular basis you will certainly recognize the “5 stages of grief” her son goes through when presented with peas at dinner. Click here to give it a listen (and her recipe for The Best Split Pea Soup Ever).
- For the pea-phobic, check out one of our favorite foodie picture books, “Little Pea” by Amy Krouse Rosenthal & Jen Corace. Little Pea hates eating candy for dinner, but his parents will not let him have his spinach dessert until he cleans his plate. This one’s super cute.
- On the topic of picky eaters, our post on waffle sandwiches was included along with a host of other fun, kid-friendly recipes on this roundup of links by Tips on Healthy Living for creating healthy habits at home. Maybe you’ll find a little inspiration for when you hit the wall.
