I have a kid who loves fennel. No lie. He often walks around the farmers market, crunching on a giant Seussian stalk of fennel. It’s hilarious. People stare and smile and make comments about how amazing it is for a kid to walk around crunching on a giant stalk of fennel. Other than the sliced fennel, this lunch is pretty standard kid fare: half a tuna salad sandwich, some multi-grain pita chips, half a cheese stick, persimmon slices and some chocolate shortbread stars for a treat.
