Those Dinner Table Conversations....

I love eating dinner with my kids.  Tonight's discussion was about which of the food groups were represented on our plates.

Jake:  We have lots of veggies. Carrots, peas, onions, celery, those are all veggies, right Mom?

Me:  Yup.

Jake:  And chicken is meat, so that is a protein.

Me:  Right again.

Jake:  The noodles... ummm....

Me:  Pasta is a grain.

Jake:  Okay, so meat, vegetables, and grain...

Evie:  Hey! Did you know gum is sticky!  If you fling it around it will stick to stuff!
