Real food battles

Finding recipes that the whole family will eat is a challenge in itself, but finding a meal that incorporates my new ethos, real food, is proving difficult. This alone reinforces my decision, the food they love is full of additives, sugar and god know what else, obviously things that appeal to the taste buds.
This worries me, it makes me wonder what damage I could have done by doing what I thought was best, feeding them food that when they were little said it was suitable but actually wasn’t. Convenience seems to take over lives and blinds us of the costs.
This is an adaptation of a Pioneer Woman recipe, I do love her recipes, I tend to use them as a base and then amend them as I go along, adding in things we like, or healthier alternatives.
