You’ve slaved for hours painstakingly planning, preparing, and cooking the healthiest, most colorfully delicious and nutritiously well-rounded meal you could have hoped for. It has protein; it has vitamins and minerals; it’s the perfect balance of carbs, sugars, fats, fibers, and flavors guaranteed to help your kids grow up big and strong — and they won’t touch it.

Well, hopefully not for long.
