What I Eat: Tye's Healthy Tuna

My 6-year-old little boy (Tye) LOOOOOVES tuna! But I didn’t want him eating copious amounts of mayonnaise! So I made up a simple, healthy recipe that he can make almost entirely by himself.

After I dice the celery, he helps use the vegetable chopper to cut the celery into finer pieces. Then he dumps the celery, tuna and yogurt into a glass bowl and mixes it all together with a wooden spoon.

He’s learning a valuable skill (meal prep) and he is SO PROUD that he helped make his own lunch! Give it a try and let us know what you think!
