Sorry... I laugh as I recant this story!
So the cousins were hanging out.
3 of them- my kids included.
I called “aunty” to ask how they were doing.
Then I asked what they had for lunch.
I was like “hello.. you there?”
She said ..
“Uh they had sautéed vegetables served with a tomato spread”
!...then I thought ... my son won’t eat anything like that..
“They had French fries and ketchup didn’t they?”
“Yes with a protein rich substitute on a cheesy platter” she added.
I asked that they be given fruits as snacks...As I laughed so hard.
We can make anything sound healthy!
Like candied apples!
Or salad dressing.
Look at labels and be sure they are real products used to serve you- as often as possible.
A little sautéed vegetables served with a tomato spread does sound delish
