Today is Athletics Day at Joe's school and the PTA (me included!) will be putting on a BBQ for lunch.
We've upgraded from the cheap hot dogs to the proper meat, no filler sausages from the local butcher which makes me very happy (and Joe too). So he will be ordering one of those.
I am however, not a fan of the supermarket bread. Luckily I was making some "quick rise" Spelt rolls for a cooking lesson with one of my hesitant eaters this week. Perfect timing as I have packed two of these for Joe to have with his sausages. He is very happy .. well, he'd be happier if he got TWO sausages but ...
Spelt is an ancient grain and a more nutrient dense, more easily digestible option than regular flour. We use instead of wheat for making bread or as a swap in baking.
Making every meal count nutritionally when you have a selective eater is important. Making some simple swaps (spelt makes a lovely, fluffy bread) can make a huge difference to the daily tally.
Have you heard of Spelt? Tried it?
