My nephew Levi loves spaghetti and meatballs. Instead of making them the traditional way, I used ground turkey breast for the meat, and whole wheat spaghetti for the pasta.
If you start them on healthy regimens when they're younger, then they will not care as much when they're older.
When I'm a mom, I don't want to deprive my kids of fun foods like this that aren't the healthiest. Instead, I will do my best to modify, modify, modify.
