What Are Some Quick, Healthy Meals That Will Appeal to My Picky Toddler & Me?

Good Questions

Q: I'm a single mom with a toddler. My usual cooking strategy is to make a few big casserole-type meals and eat leftovers throughout the week, but recently my son decided he doesn't like interesting food, so I'm either stuck with a boring meal or too many leftovers to finish.

We also wind up eating way too late on the nights I do cook. I'd love some suggestions from other working single parents. What do you like to cook that's quick, low-cost, healthy, tasty and good for picky eaters?
