Lamb and lentils. One of Joe's favourite dishes. It's simple to cook, hearty and full of fabulous ingredients. It goes in the thermos and stays nice and warm on a wet day like today.
But it doesn't look so flash.
And getting negative comments about their lunches has unfortunately been a common occurrence for my boys.
From very young we have drilled into them both that commenting negatively on someone else's food choice is not polite. This has given them some insulation against the taunts. Their first reaction is "why is that person being so rude?"
If you have a selective eater this is super important. Speaking negatively about food doesn't improve the chances of it getting eaten. Food should always be discussed in positive terms - even if it's not ones favourite thing, yet!!
Judith is passionate about good food and is even more passionate about enabling other people to enjoy the wide variety of fresh food available today.
