FOOD: Breaking Bland With The Food Bar

For fear of being that boring bland mommy, I spice things up in the kitchen. Literally. How do you keep the kitchen fresh and poppin' with 5 children who are best served in an almost cafeteria style situation? Think: Meat, next. Veggies, next. Bread... you get the picture. It gets old and they tell me so. So displayed here is my cheap trick answer: the food bar. It's simple and the more the better for kids of all ages. These pictured five were to adorn organic yogurt. Other options are potatoes, sundaes, and sandwiches. I keep it as healthy as possible and let them go wild. They love me for it.
