I'm 36 and a SAHM to my gorgeous 5 children. I have 4 boys aged 11, 10, 7 & 6 and a baby girl who is 4. Needless to say I have plenty of people to cook for. :)
I'm vegan and raising my children vegan also. I cook everyday and rarely make the same thing twice as I just love to try new things. I experiment constantly with recipes, tweaking them based on my children's taste and what's available in my fridge and pantry.
I try to avoid processed foods, limit soy, and focus on organic whenever possible. Our diet consists of mainly fruit, vegetables, grains, beans, nuts, and nut/rice milks.
Even though my children keep me busy and I homeshool them, I make the time to cook 99% of what we eat from scratch.
I love Mexican food and potatoes in absolutely any form - hash browns, mashed, fries, baked, scalloped, potato chips ... YUM.
My 11 year old son will eat mostly anything and isn't overly picky. His favorite dinner is chickpea pot pie. He loves fresh fruit and raw vegetables.
My 10 year old son is the foodie in the house. He will eat practically anything and isn't afraid to try something new, no matter how strange it may seem. He loves to help me cook and is fascinated with food preparation. He has an uncanny ability to identify ingredients in a food based on taste, when no-one else in the room even notices the flavor. It's hard to say what his favorite thing is because he loves most things!
My 7 year old son is a picky eater. He loves fresh fruit and nuts. He's not very willing to try new things but I'm hoping he'll grow out of that. He adores fresh blueberries and grapes, loves peanut butter sandwiches and dried fruit, and hates tomatoes and anything with even a hint of spiciness.
My 6 year old son isn't very picky at all. He loves fruit and nuts. He can't get enough rice crackers, grapes or dried fruit. He, surprisingly, loves extremely spicy foods.
My 4 year old daughter loves fruit, nuts and raw vegetables. Her favorite foods are pasta and olives.
I think there isn't much more important than nourishing my children's bodies with healthy food and teaching them the importance of healthy eating, while also respecting the planet and all animals.
