1. The Switcheroo. Simple. Serve Breakfast for Dinner, big pancakes, bacon, eggs, the works, something about eating breakfast foods when it is dark feels fun and rebellious.
2. The Indoor Picnic. Have a dinner picnic in the living room! Lay out a big blanket, serve hamburgers, hot dogs, salad, corn on the cob, anything you might bring on a real picnic. Roast marshmallows on the stove or fireplace and make smores for a real camp feel.
3. The Food Critic. Every Thursday (or any day of the week, just make sure it is consistent) try a brand new recipe, the rule is everyone has to try and eat it, but they also get to rate and vote on it, if the majority likes it, you will put it into the rotation, if not, you won’t make it again. Letting your kids for one night a week act as mini food critics will help make them become excited to try new things, and make them feel like they have some control over what they are being served.
