It’s not always easy finding something you and your kids will both like to eat for dinner that’s healthy, but this may just do the trick. Here’s a dish that’s not only tasty and healthy, but it’s also kid proof. Chef Jenard aka The Family Chef, his wife and their nine (yes NINE!) children love this one. Trust me on this one. My four sons and I have tried it. xoxo, Nurse Alice
