Kid-Friendly Food Everyone Will Want to Eat

 

In theory, we're not fans of kids' meals. In theory, we don't believe children should be allowed to fill their plates with only white food, or that one should have to transform broccoli and red pepper strips into artful renderings of scenes from the Lego movie in order to get one's children to eat vegetables. Food is food, right? We need to man up and stop serving our kids chicken nuggets shaped like Disney characters.

 

But, as anyone who is responsible for the feeding and watering of small humans at least three times a day knows, it can get a little exhausting.

Soup Weather

 

When the temperature is in the negative digits and the snowfall is downright apocalyptic (we're looking at you, Boston), the only thing to do is stay home and make soup. It's a cliché for a reason: nobody's craving a smoothie this time of year. We want warm, comforting bowls of clam chowder or lentils, spicy chicken broth or bourbon-laced onion soup.
