Two things we’re loving right now—food boards and salads. We’ve been sort of obsessed with the gorgeous boards created by The BakerMama for awhile now. And with warmer weather, it feels nice to be turning off the oven for dinner more often, and loading up on hearty salads. This Cobb Salad Board from The BakerMama, is a great way to introduce kids to veggies they might not normally try. ““Serving the salad so each person gets to see all of the options and create their own salad gives them pride and ownership over their creation,” says Maegan.. If kids help “make” their own meal and have a choice in what they eat, they’ll be more likely to eat it. Add this to your “Meal Prep” Sunday and you’ll be ready for a quick weekday board. The best part? Leftovers, says Maegan. “I take any leftovers from a salad board and combine them in one container to enjoy as my lunch the next day.”
