Over the last year or so, I have continued to serve salads to my kids. It was not well recieved at first...some tears, a few rolls of the eyes, and some down right protests have occured in my house. I found by letting them choose the toppings, and by trying all different types of lettuce that eventually it would not be a cry fest when I served salad. But, I never thought that it would be requested!
I usually ask the kids if they have any ideas for their lunches when before going to store. My daughter asked if I would buy some lettuce but only 'The Crunchy Kind' because it was her favorite. Took me a few seconds in deep thought to realize that 'the crunchy kind' translates to 'romaine'!
Romaine lettuce -a.k.a. 'the crunchy kind', vanilla bean yogurt with frozen blueberries, strawberry dressing, and a fruit strip.
