This DIY personalized dinner plate not only encourages Meatless Mondays but they also make a great gift for kids to make for teachers, loved ones and or siblings!
With 6 kids it is often times hard to try and cater to all my kids tastes with every single meal, especially when there’s one (and there always is that one) that refuses to eat any vegetables. For me, that one kid has always been Robert. It takes a lot of coaxing and creativity to get him to eat any veggies. We’re not huge meat eaters, yet we’re not exactly vegetarian either, so to compensate, we try to have Meatless Mondays. At first I thought it’d be a lot more challenging to get my kids on board with this, but it was a combination of MorningStar Farms® Veggie Bowls (available at Walmart) and my DIY personalized dinner plate that made it possible to do, even for my picky eater Robert!
These veggie bowls are perfect for families with busy, working parents like us, who also try to be generally healthy and conscious people. Included in the veggie bowls are 100% vegan Chik’n Strips that are lightly seasoned with 23 grams of protein and only 150 calories. With an amazing selection of Chik’n Pot Pie (our favorite), Chik’n Tikka Masala, Italian Sausage Bake, Japanese Soba Noodles, Moroccan Medley and more, it’s easy for me to substitute veggies for meat in a meal. Metaless Mondays aren’t just for vegetarians, anyone can benefit for a meatless day. Sometimes it’s just about being healthy!
We used to have a special plate that the kids would eat off of to celebrate good grades or birthdays, so for the holidays this year I decided to have them all make their own personalized plates and use them for our Meatless Monday (that’s definitely something worth celebrating)! It’s a great craft to encourage them to eat more veggies as well as to get craftier. See the easy steps below.
