Amanda's Kids' Lunch Gets Freekeh

Today's lunch is straight from the FOOD52 Shop: a freekeh salad with celery, lemon zest, parsley, and young garlic. It's topped with German ham, with Vermont Butter and Cheese Company Camembert and Greek yogurt on the side. A smorgasboard of cultures all in two lunchboxes!

Freekeh is great for kids because it's a starch that not only keeps you fuller, longer, it has nutritional benefits that get lost in other forms of wheat. Let’s put it this way: if Oliver Twist’s porridge had been made of freekeh, he wouldn’t have needed to ask for more. (Walker and Addie like it, too.)

Do the twins get the same lunch everyday? It's amazing how they like/dislike the same foods.
