Kids love junk food.
I think part of the allure of junk food is that we aren’t supposed to eat it. We want what we shouldn’t have. When I was at the Sara Lee Back to School Nutrition Summit in July, Chef Jill Houck talked to us about making healthy, nutritious foods look like junk food. Is that brilliant or what? I love the concept. I think Gracie will devour anything that looks remotely like a French Fry, as long as she can dip it in something that reminds her of ketchup. That’s exactly what Chef Jill was betting on when she created this recipe.
