Mommy I’m SO Hungry!

by bkhoury on September 27, 2012

I’m not sure if it is the changing weather and the natural urge to eat more, or if going to pre-school is tiring the boys out more.  Regardless, lately, I have heard a lot of “Mommy, I’m sooo hungry!”. 

After a lunch of noodles where my oldest wasn’t particularly enamored and ate a few obligatory bites, he moved on to applesauce and milk.  An hour later he was begging for food.  Then he begged for an early snack of apple chips and finally on to yogurt with low sugar granola.  It wasn’t until he had the yogurt that he was ready to go outside and tackle play-time. 

And the trend has continued with both boys.  If their breakfast lacks the right amount of protein, by mid-morning they are dragging.  At school if their snack is a cheese stick they are much less hungry at lunch than if their snack consists of apple slices. 

That being said, it is not that they are protein-deficient. This is very rare in this country. They just simply need to eat a more balanced diet of protein, and complex carbs. Some ways I like to work a balanced approach into their diet are:

• French toast for breakfast.  The bread soaked in the egg and milk mixture is a great protein source.  I don’t use sugar in my recipes and try to substitute fruit for syrup.  I almost always use whole grain bread although I admit French toast made with Brioche is far superior.

• Fried rice.  Kids love carbs but by adding an egg to fried rice and using a very small amount of oil, you can mix in the complete protein into this delicious dish.  It’s also a great way to mix in some finely chopped vegetables.

• Beans and beans.  I love cooking with legumes and the kids love them too. They are easy for small children to chew and you can season them in many different ways.  For very young kids try mashing them or roughly pureeing them.  My favorite is black bean soup – yumm! 

These are just three easy ways to stop the hunger cries!  Now to stop the tantrum cries!
