Every year or so I make my kids give me a list of 20 dinners that are healthy, wholesome, budget friendly, don't take more than 30 minutes to prepare. It quickly becomes apparently even to them that they are being way to narrow.
If veggies are a problem, I will insist that they give me a list of 10 veggies or dishes that they will eat. They are older so don't often shop with me but when they do I will insist that they pick out 3 veggies for the next few days. Not that easy to come up with this stuff, is it?
And, I make them cook regularly and they have fixed dinner since kindergarten (with more or less help). It really makes the point when your sister doesn't love your bean burritos the 100th time you've made them.
