I was pretty young, and single, when I had my first child. It wasn’t the easiest time, but we survived. So many years ago that was, I didn’t know what I was doing. My main goal was just to make sure that he was happy. The problem with that is that we ended up eating a lot of foods that weren’t so good for us. He got hooked on chicken nuggets, pizza, and macaroni and cheese. That was our diet for about three years, until I met my husband. He wasn’t going to settle for that stuff every night. He wanted more. Meat and potatoes, and hopefully even a vegetable.
That’s what he was used to eating at home, and when he moved out on his own, he cooked for himself. I tried so many different kinds of potatoes for my boy and I couldn’t get him to eat any of them. Well, french fries of course, but that’s not really a good option either.
Chicken enchilada loaded potatoes from NeighborFood are what turned my son’s diet around. We started basic with the cheese and sour cream and slowly started introducing other ingredients. Now, he loves potatoes, and I can even get him to eat other vegetables too!
