My daughter doesn’t like sandwiches, which means she pretty much gets a hot lunch every day. Here’s one of my bottom-of-the-barrel faves: Whole wheat couscous from Trader Joe’s,  which takes 5 minutes, and a boiled nitrate-free hot dog, which I usually keep for emergencies in our freezer. (I’ve even used the hot dog water to make the couscous when I’m really rushing.) She loves it.

    Please please cut those hot dogs in half. Hot dogs are the most common food item causing choking deaths in kids < 10 years of age. Unlike other foods that kids commonly choke on, they are notoriously difficult to clear with back blows or the Heimlich maneuver.

    Made this tonight for my 5-year-old (the only kindergartener on the planet who doesn’t like hot dogs). She was pretty excited after I showed her the picture and explained the writer’s kid was a “picky eater” (I took some liberties there, so sue me). Anyway she helped mix it all in and actually enjoyed herself and ate some, so…. thanks. Cute idea.
