“It’s nice because I don’t have anybody else telling me what not to do,” she tells me with a laugh during the Food Bank For NYC’s Can-Do Awards Gala held this week at Abigail Kirsch’s Pier Sixty. “That being said, my ex-husband has been a great dad. My kids are with him right now, and I feel totally happy leaving them with him. We parent similarly, and I’ve got a great support system. I’m lucky – I have a nanny. I’ve got a lot of help.”
As a single mom, Sarah, 43, makes sure her daughters aren’t dinnertime complainers when it comes to being picky eaters.
“They’re not too bad,” she says. “It has to be simple. I can make chicken tenders, and they are good raw veggie eaters. Especially if you give them a nasty ranch dip, they’ll go to town on the broccoli, too. However you get the veggies in, you get the veggies in!”
