“Mom, What’s For Dinner?” (The Name Swap Edition)

August 28, 2011 By Tracy

Do you have picky eaters? You know the kids that are always saying things like “Eewww!”, “Gross!”, “I don’t like that!”, “I’m NOT eating!” after hearing what it is that you have cooked for dinner? Mine do it all the time. Well recently whenever I’m fixing something that I know has gotten the above responses, I’ll change the name. For instance, tonight we are having Sloppy Joes. While most kids would want to eat anything with “sloppy” in the name…mine don’t. So, we’ve creatively started to call them “Spaghetti Sandwiches”. And guess what? The kids love them! Picky eaters? I think not!

Have you ever played name swap when it comes to dinner? I’d love to hear some of your ideas.
