Have a fussy eater? You will WANT to keep on reading.

Jessica is one of your Motivating Mums, and today she is sharing her family’s favourite recipes. Many of them are from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.

These are the ones that her kids not only like, but actually EAT! The best part is, they’re all recipes from The Healthy Mummy, so Jessica knows that they’re also great to eat when following a healthy eating plan.

Jessica says, “With a 20-month-old and a super fussy 3-year-old, I definitely need kid-friendly dinners and snacks. Anything that sneaks veggies in gets bonus points too!”

Jess shares 10 yummy recipes that her fussy eaters love
