"I try to teach them to eat the colors of the rainbow," she says of daughter Heaven, 7, and son Shaya, 6, with husband David Charvet, 42, and girls Neriah, 14, and Sierra, 12, from her first marriage. Otherwise, she says, "they'd live on chicken nuggets and Nutella  which I give them  but I have to mix it up."

The ModernMom blogger, 42, told Us Weekly at LG's July 2014 Junior Chef Academy event that she's a big fan of quality time in the kitchen. "I really believe in family dinners and spending time together," she says. "The table is kind of like our conference room. Luckily, I like to cook."

To keep their meals from getting boring, Burke-Charvet diversifies the gang's offerings — and isn't afraid to bribe her kids to eat their veggies by offering popsicles once in a while! "We do a lot of Mediterranean food — fish, meat, lots of soups, lots of vegetables. And for me, lots of wine," she tells Us.
