Do your kids leave food or milk out on the counter to go bad in warmer summer temperatures? Do they forget to tie up the bread bag? Do they get out a snack and leave it half eaten somewhere?
Do you think KimC's new "waste food; pay a fine" rule would go over well in your house? I think it's a great idea. I hate wasting food, but it seems inevitable with kids, especially the toddler set.
Now I'm just trying to figure out how I can start charging the boys when they ask for a certain food or snack and then don't eat it. We find half-eaten apples around here all the time. That drives me bonkers.
But sadly, the biggest food waster — my 2.5-year old — doesn't make an allowance yet, so I can't shake him down for food waste. I guess I can charge him in toy cars.
How do you keep your family from wasting good food?
