Why I need to teach my children more about basic nutrition in 100 or fewer words:
We're driving to soccer practice and Reese is telling Brooke all about school lunches. "They make you take a vegetable every time that you buy a lunch. Every time!"
Brooke reflects on this for a moment before weighing in. "That's okay. There are only three vegetables that I don't like."
"Which ones?" I ask.
Without flinching she reports back to me, sounding mildly amazed that I don't already have this knowledge tucked away in my memory.
"Celery, stuffing, and grass."
Come to think of it, I don't like those vegetables much, either.
