The simple answer is: Serving dessert with dinner makes life soooo much easier.

The longer answer requires some explaining.

And if you try serving dessert with dinner at your house, let me know how it goes by sending an email to, or leave a comment here on the blog. Want more help with healthy eating or family dinners?

Ask your FA for a referral to me, the DDI Vantage Dietitian.
