We called it greeven. We didn't add onions. It was a favorite Pesach dish here, we'd add it to mashed potatoes. :wub:

and to liver, and chopped meat.... :wub:

Gribenes? What's not to love, other than the fact that it's homicidal.

again, are the gribenkes really so bad, now that the schmaltz has been rendered out?

Don't tons of Americans regularly consume porn rinds (fried crisp pig skin)?


I've never had the rinds but I have had the flakes. :pardon: :pardon:

Crisp chicken skin is good, but in a family where skim milk was the preferred topping for breakfast cereal, you can bet I didn't grow up eating this!!!

I adore them but I try not to eat them when I render fat because I invariably eat them all and then I'm sick. So only eat them if you have someone to share with.

You can make crispy fried chicken without the skin. (Don't tell my southern counterparts, I'll be kicked out of the 'club' if they knew I skinned my chicken before frying it...)

Fat and protein both have nutritional value.

I wonder if there's any nutritional value in chicken skin.

(Desperately looking for new ways to get nutrition into my kid's stomach.)


No. Have you tried zucchini/pumpkin muffins? How about those squeezable yogurts? Fruit/vegetable juices (each juice box is like one serving of veggies IIRC - too lazy to get up and look, or google)? Eggs are pretty nutritious and can be worked into all kinds of things. You can blend veggies into pasta sauces. Dip french toast in pureed pumpkin/egg mixture. Add ground flax or nuts to breading for chicken nuggets. Buy the applesauces that are blended with more nutritious fruits (like blueberries) or add it yourself. Have you tried kid-friendly snacks like ladybugs-on-a-raft or turkey-wrapped apple slices? Sub almond butter for PB in sandwiches or try cream cheese and (no sugar added, superfood-enriched) jelly instead. There are lots of sneaky substitutions you can make to foods he already likes if your issue is that he refuses to try anything healthy. If you need to put weight on him, you can add eggs and avocados and full-fat dairy to a lot of foods.

Fat and protein both have nutritional value.


I doubt most american kids have difficulty getting fat in their diets. :biggrin:

Hi Shuli, thanks for the suggestions. All dairy is out because of allergies. Ditto tree nuts. He refuses avocados (they're called "yuckycados" in my house) as well as most fruits. The good thing is that he LOVES eggs. No need to hide them, I can just scramble them up and put them on a plate and he's good to go. Problem is the kid consumes a LOT of eggs. Soups seem to be doing fairly well. He even ate a lentil tomato soup a few weeks ago! (I told him it that Eisav traded his birthright for this soup.)


Avocados can be used in place of fat in a lot of recipes (including cake AND frosting), which would avoid the yuck factor (as long as he doesn't see you making it ;) ). My kid loves eggs also and I don't restrict them; they're pretty nutritious, so if he's eating that, I think he already has a leg up on the only-pb-sandwich kid. If he likes soups, you can hide almost anything in a blended soup. Is he open to at least trying things, or is he unwilling to take bites? Roasting veggies brings out their natural sugars and they become more kid-palatable, so long as you can get him to *try* it. I don't think fruit aversion is a big deal; the most popular fruits are pretty high in sugar. Have you tried smoothies?

Hmmm. The hidden avocados idea is intriguing. Could you suggest any recipes? He eats about 3-4 eggs a day. It's a lot. He also eats tuna which is good (forgot to mention that.) He'll sometimes eat smoothies. I've tried roasting/broiling veggies, he's unimpressed. Right now, I'm concentrating on soups since that seems promising (and I have a new cookbook. ;) )

He will sometimes try a bite but not always. He's probably doing pretty well food-wise when compared to others his age but, remember, I'm a Jewish mother and food is a big deal for me. (In other words, the problem may very well be mostly in my mind.)


Well, with the eggs and tuna, you probably have the a lot of the protein covered. If he'll eat soups, how about stews? Lots of way to stick veggies in there.....

Have you tried putting vegetables in egg or tuna salad? Finely diced cucumber and bell pepper works well.
